Filming live in 3-D just isn't there yet. I felt like I was watching the movie on an iPod with the screen being framed in by the glasses. I lost the big screen experience. It would have helped if the glasses wrapped around my peripheral vision. Many images were blurry and transparent and hard to focus on.

I don't know- just my opinion, but I was yearning to take off the glasses and watch it normally after the first 5 minutes and did occassionally. It wasn't worth the extra $1. The Real-D experience isn't any different than any other 3-D experience. The adjective "ground-breaking" that has been used to describe Dolby's technology isn't even close.

My customers loved the realD experience, and are ready for more. I did not have one complaint about the 3D, or the extra admission fee charges, It was fun to hear my patrons talk how good the 3D is.

I was very impressed with the 3D effects at the screening of JOURNEY at ShoWest. It is definitely an improvement over the 3D from Spy Kids and other pre-digital 3D.

The budget on this flick looks like it should have been called "Journey to the Center of Woolworth's." However, it was pleasant enough, the 3D effects were good, and apparently Brendan Fraser has a certain amount of charm (so my wife tells me).

If you can do the 3D it should perform well. If showing in 2D, it's just a second feature for the drive-ins.

One thing I really did like is that the script made a point more than once of letting the kids in the audience know how important it is to read books. If it gets a few of 'em to pick up a volume of something, then it's served a noble purpose.

Geju Theatre Supply. I am surprised dealers in your area are not interested in small operations.
