Oooooooooh I'm excited.
i'm hoping on skanking some tickets.
isn't that kindof average cinema price for London? Or am i just being some parochial "everything costs the moon in that there London" type?
maybe in zone 1 leicester sq, where it's £10 i think.
on the outskirts it's all about £6/7 i think.
i have a cineworld card though, so it's £15 a month.
so I'm half right, maybe...
you can get a £12 a month one too, i've just got one that includes the central london cinemas, which is £14.99!
Star Wars Episode III was SEVENTEEN POUNDS A TICKET!
Yes: £12 is an average price for a good West End cinema.
when i saw Episode 2 in the bog Odeon thingy, it was £10. that was 2002, ALRIGHT?
They raised it between the two. I'm pretty sure it was £12 for Ep II but then I only sit in the Royal Circle there because ther view in the stalls is restricted.
They raised it just in time for Episode III and I actually took a day off so I could see a £10 matinee performance instead of paying that much.
i did!! it was introduced by Anthony Daniels, who came out on stage. it was very exciting :)
you were ripped off
were filmed on some special Imax camera
to do all the close-ups on Batman!
as they have to use a different film or something. i think.
some scenes were filmed on extra-special imax cameras for added WOW effect
i saw the last one at IMAX and the only lasting memory i have of it is how MASSIVE katie holmes' nipple ons were.
are they wonky like her face?
i can't remember, they were just HUGE and literally the size of a bus!!
i'm not *that* sure if IMAX makes normal films any better, if bits are 3D it's kinda fun but i dunno.
like giant crab eyes.
I've never been to a 3D one, can you imagine the nips being 3D? Terrifying.
i'm not sure what it is really, but there is a difference between 'IMAX'quality' film and the 3D stuff they show there. 2 different things i think.
its only if the films are shot for imax. Which 20mins of this film was.
because its a huge screen with awesome sound etc, but no actually difference apart form that, no.
so in a sense it should look much more detailed in the IMAX screens with less grain and/or noise.
(I don't know if the IMAX cameras are digital or not as you might have guessed.)
i might go, idk, i havent been to an imax in years and years
This is going to be phenomenal.
I hope it's worth the wait. This will be the first proper film I've seen in an IMAX. Previously I've just gone to those features, like Lions of the Kalahari and one about the Grand Canyon.
2.35:1 is, after all, the aspect ratio of kings, so full marks to Nolan for using it.
However, on finding out that some scenes are filmed in the IMAX AR it then means seeing it at a cinema is wrong. Harrumph.
I'm still a bit confused as to how it'll be going between 2.35:1 and 1.44:1.
and so does that mean one scene will be 'letterbox', then it will jsut expand out to the full IMAX screen size, then back again? That would be weird.
I just paid £25 for 2 tickets AND I have to pay to get the train to London.
im going to 8.20 showing. funfunfun.
See you there! Or not, probably, but I'll think of you x
There'll be no cutting of bits or anything.
about spending an extra £40 for 20 mins of giant screen action. It usually costs me approx £7.40 to go to Cineworld Crawley, half as I usually Orange Weds it. Instead I am paying £12.50 and £15 rail.
The barriers can obstruct the screen sometimes.
quite far back.
It'll be a nice evening out in London, so I'll quit moaning.
IMAX scenes are in IMAX ratio, as I understand it. Check the tech specs on IMDB and you'll see both ratios are listed and the IMAX only for certain scenes.
I actually assumed they'd unmatte the 35mm negative for the main film and show it all TV ratio but I think they filmed the 2.35:1 anamorphically (woohoo!) so it's not possible to do that.
it's Batman! on a massive screen!
as in in two days timw? Howzat?
