Believe me, as much as it would still be worth it to see, just to see... You WANT to see this movie in 3D... Trust me on this...

It would be sad If Us Edmontonians do all the work and have the only showing be in Calgary.. Although it is better than the Alternative of no showing... I see people are looking at the thread but yet no one is weighing in...

Cineplex missed that deadline yesterday so I put another call in.
I should hear a response soon.
Her follow up message was, "as soon as I hear anything I will confirm with you", which seems reasonable.

I have enlisted the troops here to send out emails as well, but I will wait to hear a positive response from Cineplex, before sending the flood.

Thanks!!

Road Trip!!!!! We could all go down together, it would be an adventure...I don't care if it is in Calgary...I will travel there to see it for sure. I'm flexible....

So I heard back from Cineplex.

Michael McCartney in L.A. told Marie-eve, the lady at client services in TO, prior commitments for the 3D venues in Alberta mean that they would have to break contracts to bring it here to Alberta.

I asked when the first available dates are open and got a run around answer. I will follow up on that.

I asked to talk to Mr. McCartney, no go.
They told me they are keeping the option open. Whatever that means.

Plan B - A private screening.

I have asked Cineplex to quote me a price and a date in March the theatre and all the equipment for 3D can be ready if we were to hold a private screening.
I have asked NGS to quote me for the movie rights as well.

How much do you think we could raise to bring it here?
Ideas?

Please continue to email and phone Cineplex because the more they hear from us the better. Tell them you have a message for Michael McCartney in L.A. and they will forward them.

I'll still keep at this, they can't ignore us forever and eventually they will have an opening for us.

All of this work just to tell you what you already found out some time ago...that sucks.
I just emailed NG to follow up and see if they would be willing to enter into a contract with Cineplex as soon as a spot opensd up....at least then we know it will come...even if I have to wait, It's not like I can just saunter down to the local video store and get it when it comes out on DVD...you know what I mean?
If it has to be seen on the big screen in 3D then let's get it here in March of 2009...whatever takes.

I am really disappointed.....but I won't let the bastard grind me down...
Hrm..Staring at the Sun really sums it up..LOL!

I'll e-mail. I'm in Sylvan Lake and extremely upset that neither Calgary or Edmonton is showing this film. Red Deer obviously doesn't have 3D capable theatres.

I got a call yesterday from Mr. Katz at National geographic...nothing confirmed yet but he called me to diplomatically ask me to ask me and my fellow U2 fans to "ease" up on Cineplex. Apparently our message is getting heard loud and clear...Mr. Katz is worried that Cineplex will stop negotiations if we continue to push. I'm not sure what to think. It was an interesting call...because of all the things left unsaid. He asked us to respect the process and to let him negotiate behind the scenes for a bit.
He's very nice and has been honest up to this point so I trust him when he says he needs some space to work on it.
I guess my advice to any fans who wish to send emails...please be pleasant...it's important to be as polite as possible even if we are frustated...Mom always said you catch more flies with honey...

Oh and just between you and me and the fencepost...with advocacy I have learned that when the aim of your campaign calls you back to ask you to "ease up a bit" it only means they are feeling pressure...which is exactly what we want...so I am hesitant to ask any of you to "stop" emailing.
I think Cineplex can see the revenue U2 3D is generating elsewhere and wants to bring it here but has the tricky task of breaking a contract or contracts...and doesn't want too much bad press.

Brace yourselves U2 fans....I'lll keep you posted.

Do you folks have any IMAXs out there? If you're going to put effort into this campaign, I would suggest you focus your efforts on getting it into an IMAX.

Yes, there are 2 theatres that support the IMAX 3D format...
There are more IMAX theatres but they are not equipped for Digital 3D.

It sounds like the Telus World of Science is thinking about an upgrade once they can justify the investment.
Fingers crossed.

Ouch! We have such a bad reputation...honestly some of us Albertans aren't so bad (our politicians suck, yes...)
Truthfully, I've begun wondering why I still live in this fricken province....
