Given the additional cost of watching 3D movies, it has become questionable whether or not to actually view a film that was not shot in 3D. As has occurred more than once, even a film shot in native 3D, can easily be not worthwhile to view in 3D; e.g., Man of Steel and The Great Gatsby. The vast majority of viewers do not see 3D projections and that may turn out to be a wise decision - the difference in cost could be a large drink or popcorn (an even more important factor is the loss of brightness with a 3D projection, unless it is through a laser projector). When it comes to purchasing a given movie, it is probably more than worthwhile to buy the 3D version that usually has the 2D BR disc included with it for something like $5 more. So that the only other pressing reason for me to see a 3D film is that it is also in Dolby Atmos and the 2D version isn't - even then the Dolby Atmos mix may turn out to be a dud. There simply aren't many 3D Avatar's or 3D Prometheuses available that make it worthwhile to view on a big screen, but one can't know until one sees it.
