You're not missing out on much. I live in California and I live 15 minutes from an IMAX theater, and I'm still opting to see the movie in Real 3D. This movie wasn't shot in IMAX so basically, it's just the same movie being played on a bigger screen, and that doesn't work really well for 3D. I saw Avatar in both formats and the Real 3D was a lot better than IMAX 3D. So honestly, don't feel like you're missing out on anything, because you're really not.

I understand how you feel but is it really all that bad you will see the film very soon and be one of the first to at that and If I can I will find a way to send you a ticket to get to Montreal and see it at the IMAX theater here, but I would have to win the lottery or something I think, how much is air fair from Belgium to Montreal, Canada?

@ Spartacus...Haha, that's truly very kind of you, but if I really wanted to, I could always go to the Netherlands. They have like 5 IMAX theatres ( we get none) and it's only hundreds of miles of driving... Hoorah!
@CBT1997...I'm not really that concerned with the 3D. It's just that I want to see this film on the biggest screen we can possibly make.
By the way, I feel sorry for you Germans, having to wait till august to see this awesome movie.
You don\\\'t see them fucking each other over for a goddamn percentage!

@Gimmeafacehug: EUROSTAR > London. That's all I can say, probably worth it as that one in Waterloo is the largest IMAX in Europe, you can't possibly get it bigger than that! Accomodation could be sorted out for free...
As for the Germans, I feel even more sorry for them as they'll have to watch the dubbed version. Doh, that REALLY sucks, no matter how great or large the screen is!

IMO Eurostar to Paris: IMAX, French and earlier!
Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born.
Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.

BTW, I used to live and Folkestone and took the ferry over to Calais quite often and Belgium wasn't all that far north. Now that you've got the "Chunnel" (which I believe is quite affordable) you might be able to reach an IMAX before hitting London in my old Kent district.
Scan this site for assistance: [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_IMAX_venues]HERE[/url]*
*-The list is not complete/updated for I don't see mine listed here in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Do you have a Fandango.com or MovieTickets.com equivalent in Europe? Try that and see what turns up (unless you have and Holland is the closest you found). If you do have to go to Holland, though, think of the "fun" you can have while there.

Believe it or not, the first place I ever heard of a IMAX was in this site. LOL.
We have no IMAX theatres here.
By the way, most people that I know don't like 3D movies in theatres. Odd thing...

IMAX 3D, IMHO, is better than Real 3D (I have been to many films in both formats). The bigger screen allows for almost total immersion and the conversion does not suffer one bit (unlike 2D filmed movies using digital cameras suffer when they are converted to 3D...i.e. Avengers). Prometheus was filmed using digital 3D cameras and some of the finest available at that. Real 3D and IMAX 3D will both look great.....only IMAX 3D will be the pinnacle of immersion....that's it.

Seats reserved for showing in Indianapolis at 12:01 on June 8, my first IMAX 3D experience. Some say good, others not. I'll take my chance just to see this on the largest screen possible. Will probably see it in 2D a day or two later. Looking forward to seeing the cobrahugger reach out to touch someone. My wife hates the chestburster scene in the original. She will flip out over this.
She has no clue what is in store for her. Sign me up for TEAM COBRAHUGGER!

I've seen quite a few IMAX 3D movies and Real 3D. IMAX 3D is awesome....Trust me.

Don't listen to the naysayers of 3-D. They have health issues.
You wanna experience Prometheus the way it was purposely shot.
Sir Ridley is not a hater of 3-D. The guy has vision. I trust him.
SpartacusOvomorphMember0 XPMay-06-2012 3:41 PM
it is amazing and this is how Ridley said he intends for it to be seen as well. I think he would prefer if everyone could see it this way.

If it makes you feel better I have an IMAX 2 hours from me and they aren't even getting Prometheus. I have to go to vancouver which is a 2 hour drive, 2 hour ferry and 1 hour drive. I am making a weekend trip out of it and watching it twice.
Like I said before, I'll do anything twice.
