I reserved tix for the first day (Thursday) or release, also at IMAX 3D. Not clear if it's "real" IMAX 3D but it'll be at a cineplex IMAX screen so I assume just regular 2.35:1, which I prefer anyway. Can't wait!

Just saw Phantom Menace last night at the kids' request and wow, I couldn't believe how bad it was and continues to be. So bad that Jar Jar is the best part of it now.

I managed to watch this the other day in Real 3D, picking up tickets they had signs warning about photo epilepsy which are well warranted I think. Overall the film is physically dark a lot of the time or shot under heavy cloud cover so if the projection isn't up to scratch it's difficult to figure out what's going on. However, there's quite a few opportunities for space battles that bring out the 3D depth and some pop outs when it makes strategic sense. Overall I'd say it was worth watching in 3D and collecting to wrap up the trilogy in 3D.

We did our IMAX 3D and it was the worst IMAX experience since this theater opened. First of all, the intro 3D was in 3D but there were no glasses which was suspicious. Turned out the movie was in 2D.
Second, they flashed spot lights onto the screen, on and off over and over for the first 10 minutes until several got up and complained and then they stopped that nonsense. Also many were yelling out to shut off the spots.

Third, the sound was so loud that there was snapping in the speakers.

I usually like to get there early for a good seat but those of us in line early were now escorted to the front row so we had to look up at the screen in front up close. Those who arrived late got to get the best seats near the back center.

The only saving for the movie was the story and production. I now look forward to buying the 3D disk and 4K more than ever.

When I left I saw some tossing the 3D glasses into the bin. How come they had 3D glasses and most didn't for a movie that was in 2D? I saw one employee standing around and was planning to ask about that but I had so many complaints, he probably would feel I was just a complainer. Decided I would put it in the review email I usually get from this IMAX. Guess what? This time I got no review form by email from the theater. Figures! You see they have my email because I bought tickets on-line.

People in the theater also were annoying but that is something I expect to have to put up with and the reason I rarely go to the movies anymore. Even with the warnings on shutting off phones, several still would have those bright screens up to their faces as they check their messages.

So when the movie ended while the credits were rolling I looked around and saw maybe 10% of the audience had already left. It was probably the loud distortion in the sound that was too painful for them to sit through. Being in the front row, I hadn't noticed.

As to why 2D, my guess is they ran out of 3D glasses that were clean so they just ran the 2D movie without warning. It was the second 3D showing of the day. I noticed the glasses bin at the stairs exit was full from the first showing.

Sorry to hear that - I would have walked out and demanded my money back. Playing a 2D movie instead of a 3D one (when it's meant to be 3D) because they ran out of glasses is not acceptable IMHO, particularly if I'm going out of my way to see it in 3D.

@Don Landis : I'm going this afternoon. AMC forum has Dolby 2D, RealD 3D, IMAX 2D, and IMAX 3D. IMAX 3D has only one showing time per day and it's at 3:30p.m. so most working people can't make it. The other venues have several evening showings, and the IMAX 2D shares the same theater room as IMAX 3D. My experience with this theater is the IMAX 3D is never crowded with sometimes 5-10 people most. That said, it's always way too loud, so I bring ear plugs and that usually works. I always feel sorry for the kids people bring with them, especially if they are about 8 and under. Typically, they sit there with their glasses off after about 10 minutes and complain. When Jurassic Park was converted to 3D IMAX, I went and there were only 3 people in the theater and the projector wouldn't go into 3D. We complained and they tried to fix it but gave up and gave free tickets for those that wanted to see it in 3D, so two of us left and one person stayed and watched it in 2D. Of course, this is iMAX with a small "i", since the screen is smaller than a true IMAX screen, but still looks great, usually.

Will give you my impression later today...

Saw this movie last night at an AMCforum theater in IMAX 3D. That said, the movie did not fill the screen, but was the wide-screen version projected on an IMAX screen. There were only 17 people there for the one 3D showing at 3:30p.m. We were all handed RealD glasses, and I thought that might not be right. Well, when the 3D previews were on several of us noticed right away that there was no 3D. So I and another guy couple seats away went out to the lobby, and they gave us the correct IMAX glasses. We went back into the theater and tried to let others know they had the wrong glasses. About half of the people got different glasses, the others just sat there. The previews were so loud and the theater so dark, the others didn't get what we were trying to tell them. Well, there are probably some people who will never go see another 3D movie because they didn't see 3D or thought the 3D was stupid. And that's sad. And, of course, it was so dang loud I had to use my ear plugs again.

That said, I thought this movie was one you had to see in 3D to enjoy it, as the director seemed to shoot with 3D in mind. Some popouts, but limited. But a lot of demanding depth, that without 3D, would only confuse the viewer with all the action going on. One problem was that about a 3rd of the movie was shot in dark places. Will be another tough movie for home-viewed 3D projectors, I think. The movie pays homage to the past earlier Star Wars movies with some of those characters showing up again. More alien species added to some scenes, made them more interesting. As a movie, I'd give it a c+ maybe, but an A- for 3D.

I as well saw this in 3d and thought the movie was great.. Theater was full.. But i did have a problem with the film.. I couldn't see half the movie it was so freaking dark i was fighting and fighting to see through the darkness which killed the fun for me.. I hope the home version get's fixed cause that showing really sucked.. Plain and simple.. Thats an easy way to kill 3D
