It's a Sontaran trap! Stay away from the ATMOS!

Also, yes I'll probably go see it.

I haven't really heard much about this, but apparently two theatres in town offer this 48FPS mumbo jumbo. They're also the theatres with available personal recliners and a full dinners if you want to pay $15 for a burger & $20 for a movie ticket. But I'll probably end up seeing it a week after the premier in lame 2D and 24FPS for $6 at a matinee.

One is just a few miles from here. I may try and check it out when it opens.

Honestly, no. My eyes can't tell the difference.

3D makes my head hurt, and looks gimmicky, so no, I'll pass.

The nearest "as it was meant to be seen" theater to me is in Chicago which is about 3 hours away, and I'm thinking about making the trek. The Atmos part of it is what I'm most interested in, but I'm still curious about the whole HFR "48 FPS" deal. Since my local theater just went digital this year, and the bigger town next door went digital a few years ago, I figure this will be like jumping ahead in time about 3 years, lol.

I'd like to see it in the high frame rate, but it looks like any theatre offering that is going to be just too far away. I tend not to like 3D at all so I'll be avoiding that.

I don't really like 3D all that much (except I did get some cute Harry Potter style 3D glasses for Deathly Hallows), but a bunch of friends are going to the midnight show and now I have a ticket for that so there it is. I am of course, figuring out what to wear waiting in line (bazillions of layers I think) and when I think I might be getting sleep that week because it sure doesn't look likely. I had really sworn off movies at midnight but friend's birthday, whatcha gonna do.

Additional bonus, the theater I'm going to has the chocolate popcorn.

Well - HFR is supposed to make 3D easier on the head. It's smoother motion, and helps with the 3D illusion, so it's possible there would be less headaches. But there are theaters showing the movie in 3D that is not HFR. Which is really a shame, but blame WB. The theater in my own town has all the equipment but can't show it because WB has already decided on a limited release.

I don't like 3D when it's gimmicky (Toy Story 3), but when it's used to make the movie immersive (Hugo), it can be a huge boost to the cinematography.

I'm all in for the HFR. Bought tiks for Friday morning show. Can't wait!
