Why I’ll pay $21 to see an IMAX 3D movie at Lincoln Square.
It’s not something I’d do every weekend, but for big tent poles shot in 3D (or on IMAX) it’s very much worth it. And it evens out with the $7 matinee prices I normally pay. If you love movies (and I mean all movies), it’s a tremendous experience.
On a related note: As you can see above, converted “IMAX” theaters are bullshit and NOT worth this price tag. So know before you go.
Why I will drive to Irvine or to LA to see a film if I think it’s worth it.
Two hour drive plus traffic?
Worth it. Fucking Worth It.
If I’m seeing The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX, I’m not seeing it in a theatre in San Diego.
I’ve people comment on this before, telling me the theatres in San Diego are actually quite good.
