U23D - Not in IMAX

Well, I wrote to the IMAX Corporation, and this is what I got back.....


Thank you for your email to info@imax.com. The U2 3D film is not a large-format film. To my knowledge, this film is being produced in digital 3D. It will not be available in IMAX 3D.


Best regards,
Sarah Armstrong
IMAX Corporation



Oh well, I thought I read a rumor somewhere that it was going to be in IMAX. I'm glad that I got it clarified.

Gotta be a bit of an oversight considering there are only 19 cinemas in the whole of europe capable of showing it!

Yeah, Real D seems to be very American-based. There's about 15 theaters within 50 miles of me. (The closest appears to be about 15 miles away)

I wish you good luck that the Bavarians don't read that.

It's a shame that they don't have any more cinemas here in Europe. I hope they open the 20th in Berlin, in the next two months.
I guess I will go to Nuremberg or Munich for that.

They're supposedly adding a lot of new cinemas by the end of the year.

There's one in Syracuse, which is a little over an hour from me. It's at a big mall I go to once in awhile anyway. Maybe I'll go see it, go shopping, then go see it again

There is one in Dublin GG. At the same time you could pop into Bonos house and ask him which ass made this decision

Australia has 14 cinemas for approx 19M ppl. Europe has 19 cinemas for 400M

Wow, miracle of miracles, there's one in Melbourne that, although not near my place, isn't grossly out of my way either.

I feel sorry for all the U2 fans I know in New Zealand, though. At least you Europeans who don't have one nearby don't have to cross thousands of kilometres of ocean to get to a cinema!

I checked out their list of theatres and my Imax theatre came up, so maybe if a theatre has an Imax theatre in it, it may soon have the ability to show the digital 3D. Did that make sense?

It's possible some multiplexes will have both IMAX and Real D on different screens. They'll still have to upgrade a screen for Real D though.

I meant to come back and post that link too.

Thanks!



It's very strange that Houston has a butt load of places, but there's not one in the city limits of Dallas. Well they are here in the surrounding area. Funny that they are not even in the suburbs touching the city limits of Dallas. They are in the sub-suburbs.

Now does that make sense?
