Are all Frankenweenies black and white?

Frankenweenie is the first black & white stop-motion animated film in the IMAX 3D format, but I saw it at the World Premiere at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre, which is not an IMAX venue, so I don’t know how effective that version is; the regular 3D version has a nice depth and immersive quality to it.
