Reactions after seeing U23D

I went to the 9.30pm showing last night. I thought the movie was unbelievably realistic. It really felt like I was at the arena, watching a concert. The only thing that was awful was the audio in my theater (King of Prussia's United Artist IMAX). After reading a few reviews that said they were blown away by the movie, particularly the sound, I had very high hopes that it would resemble a concert setting (ie. blaring sound system). I was very disappointed with the sound quality last night.


The movie itself made me relive my experiences from the 2005 Vertigo tour. I went to see them at several venues during the 3rd leg. In Boston, I scored a 5th row seat on The Edge's side. And boy, it felt like The Edge was within an arm's reach whenever he ventured out into the ramp (see attached photo). Last night was like that. And the most awesome thing was that I felt like I got SO close to Larry, which is damn near impossible to achieve in a real concert setting. The closest I ever got to him was during Elevation tour in Philly when I sat behind the stage. From that angle, you could forget about actually seeing his face... But the U23D movie made it possible for us to be so close to Larry and watch him in action on the drums.

I really want to hear feedback from other people about the theaters they went to, because I feel like I got cheated last night... Any suggestion on which theater will give us the best U2 3D experience?
