    Hey all,

    I have a question for you all,but do the Theaters where yall live have 3D?,
    I read where ours in East Texas have it.So does that mean all of them are?.
    If not then the news a while back of ROTF being in 3D may be true for
    some places.I sure hope so,I will so be seeing it more than once.

    There's only one theater thats 3D near me. Me and the wife watched My Bloody Valentine 3D there. It was expensive, but cool. They only had 1 screen that was 3D.

    Most theatres are not 3D- equipped...yet. Right now, there's about 1 3-D movie coming out each month til the end of the year, and TF:ROTF is not on the list. But, here are some that are...
    Battle For Terra (Friday)
    Up (May 29th)
    Ice Age 3 (July 1st)
    Harry Potter 6 may have some 3-D scenes (July 15th)
    G-Force (gerbils, not anime) (July 24th)
    Final Destination 4 (August 21st)
    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (September 18th)
    Toy Story 1 and 2 Double Feature 3-D (October 30th)
    A Christmas Carol (Jim Carey motion captures and voices most of the roles) Nov. 6th
    Avatar (James Cameron directs) Dec. 18th

    On the slate for the next couple of years are Shrek 4, Toy Story 3, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and a bunch of other stuff. As more theatres install the rather expensive digital technology, we'll probably see more films in this format. Personally, 1 a month is enough for me.

    Funny story: I received a call from a customer recently complaining that we were only showing Monsters vs Aliens in 3-D, and that we had shown Bolt only in 3-D. For the first two weeks of each movies run (and maybe longer), we did offer a 2-D version of both films. The 3-D makes us more money, though, so when it comes time to drop a copy of the film, the 2-D is the first to go. However, despite the fact that we played the flat version, the lady said that we were discriminating against her one-eyed husband.

    I suppose the fact that we sometimes show movies with subtitles discriminates against the illiterate, too.

    I think the only 3d screens around me are Imax, and we got 2 that I know of.

    Nothing dedicated, just the IMax theaters.

    I'd love to see more of them.

    Drop the 2D version, and you discriminate against those who want 3D.

    Drop a movie that bombed its first weekend, and you discriminate against those who wanted to see it the second weekend.

    I empathize with the woman (or rather her husband), but some stuff can't be helped.
