Hello Hello!!


January 17th, 2008

this may be a dumb question... @ 02:07 pm

bonoinakilt:
I'm currently feelin: sick sick
I'm currently hearin: U2 // original of the species

is U2 3D going to be released nationally?

like, is this select cities thing only for the opening of it?

I just don't know if I can fit a road trip in right now to go see it...but I will try to find a way if I must.

I've only watched the trailer and looked at the theaters it was playing at. I haven't read about it or anything...hence I really don't know anything. lol

thanks in advance for answers!

so far, the only confirmed showings are at the IMAX theaters listed n the U23D site. (http://www.u23dmovie.com/)

Real-D has a list of all of their movie theaters, so I recommend calling your local theater. (http://www.reald-corporate.com/cinema_theater.asp)

I also don't advise getting your hopes up, as I posted a few days ago in this comm about the Hannah Montana 3D movie getting priority over U2 in theaters. (http://community.livejournal.com/u2/2148364.html)

Hope that helps.

I have no definitive information, but I'm pretty sure it's going to remain limited. For one, not all cities have theaters capable of showing Digital 3D theaters. (To find capable theaters, go to RealD.com and search using zipcodes, or IMAX.com, and look for IMAX theaters with digital 3D capabilities), and not all of the capable theaters will be showing it (check individual theater websites to find out, or call them and ask)\ To me it just seems unlikely that that the capable theaters that aren't showing it right away will decide to play it later, especially not with the Hannah Montana 3D movie sucking the life out of everything (lol, I'm bitter.) Probably the only hope we have for that is if they sell a loooot of tickets during the opening at the select theaters, and decide that it has a good chance of making a lot of money at other theaters.

As for me... I've given myself a headache over the last few days trying to find a place to go see it. There are no digital 3D capable theaters in my general area, and the closest theater I could find that will be playing it is a single theater in St. Louis which is over two hours away (a few closer 3D capable theaters won't be playing it), and that was the ONLY theater I could find within 5 hours that will be playing it.

it's okay to be bitter. i'm still holding out hope that once the Hannah Montana crap is over(it's only out for a week, thank god), a lot of the Digital 3D-capable theaters will start showing the U2 movie.

I'm also positive it's only going to show in selected cities, thanks to Hannah Montana *rolls eyes* I just turned 17 and have no desire whatsoever to catch that stupid little teenybopper, why can't every other teenager be as cool as me? *grin*

But what's this I hear about it being in regular theaters as well? I thought it was only being released in IMAX, 3D compatible theaters?

there are two theaters showing it: the IMAX theaters, and the version being shown in movie theaters with 3D capabilities. (reason being IMAX screens are bigger than regular sized screens in movie theaters)

so, you have to either see it in an IMAX theater, or one of the theaters listed on the REAL-D site (http://www.reald-corporate.com/cinema_theater.asp)

It seems to be coming to non-IMAX 3D theaters on Feb. 15, if they're getting it at all. There are a few theaters 'round here that'll have it for a week then (2/15-2/21).

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I apparently have a 3D capable theatre 15 minutes from my house plus two IMAX theatres 45 minutes from my house which will be playing U23D. I don't think it's that limited.

Check U23Dmovie.com. If you have any science museums near your area that have an IMAX theatre, they are probably going to show it.
