I am traveling again this week. This time down in Bedford and Plano, Texas. I just ordered my midnight showing ticket for The Hobbit. Big deal, right?

Well, back home in Iowa the best I could do is just a normal digital theater with normal sound. This will be at the Cinemark theater in Plano on their XD screen (their version of "IMAX sized" screen) in 3D and with Dolby Atmos sound. Oh, it also will be at 48 fps. All sorts of new and awesome tech all at once. We will see if I get sick or not after 2 hours and 45 minutes with the extra smooth 3D on the giant screen.

Anyone else live around Plano?

oh, no kidding.. check your pm.... or "my stuff" However, the midnight show on a work night is a bit much for this old guy!... We could get together for dinner another day this week, if you want.

I'm game for that. I am working in Bedford Tuesday and possibly Wednesday, and then in Plano on Thursday, but I am going to get out of the office at 4:30 each of those days and head to the hotel. I sent you a PM with my contact info too.

I wouldn't normally worry about a midnight showing, but since I am traveling and don't have to fly out until 11:30 on Friday (without having to go to the office first), I am going to capitalize on the opportunity to go to a (hopefully) great theater.

NO no, you can get the limited edition "The Hobbit" ones for $180.

LOL. Yea, I am sure that the $3 ones will work just fine, and I will be sitting there with all of the other Hobbit crazies (not that *I* am crazy) wearing the same $3 glasses, so "style" won't matter.

I was actually surprised that even with the large format screen, Atmos sound, and 3D elements that the price was only $16.50 - $1.50 of that being online ordering "convenience fees."

Not bad for normally $15. Oh and the seat is reserved too, meaning no waiting in long lines to get the best seat. Sure, mine is off to the side a little, but that is OK. It isn't near the extreme edge right or left, and is about half way up the "top" section of seating, which in IMAX theaters is about right. Ideally I would have liked to be about 5-10 seats more towards the middle.

Sounds good buddy, wish I could be there. I'm still yet to try my 3D tv, so I am envious. I don't even have glasses yet, so I am looking around.....want to be good!
