I'll be interested in knowing if the colours and brightness are good on these 3D screenings, no spoilers when you return please although i'd like to know if you thought the origins story ( re-told again ) was as good as Sam Raimi's version of the story.

Been years since i went to the cinema, second last time was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the damn exit door sign was too near the screen and a bright patch was forever on the screen especially bad during the darker filmed moments, add to the fact i couldn't believe how bad the film got during it's second half and i am likely the biggest fan here of Raiders Of the Lost Ark.  I prefer now to wait for the home release.

Anyway that cinema was the The Vue in The Omni Centre in Edinburgh, they have 4K screening facilities but damn was the illuminated exit sign an issue, not sure if all the screens have that issue though.

Same here. UK law doesn't allow them to turn out the Fire Exit sign. Shame they put it RIGHT NEXT TO THE SCREEN  :'( ::)

I should add, almost forgot, i did see one more film after the Indiana Jones one, it was The Hangover at Cineworld in Fountain Park, Edinburgh, i highly recommend this cinema, no exit door signs near the screen, they were further up and away from the screen and the image was great, i could see the film grain clearly, good projection setup there.

Just got back and ..............the wife and daughter loved it, me to be honest i like Sam Raimi's version better. Also if you lads were thinking of going down the 3D route for this one, save your money as it had absolutley no 3D pop to it what so ever. :o

To be honest i don't think it was, it had the potential fro great 3D with all the CGI but there was just nothing. :(

They specifically shot it in 3D too using the Red Epic 5K cameras, same camera is being used on The Hobbit and was used on Prometheus.

Thats a shame, I wonder  how well these cinemas look after the Kit ?. 3D in general seems to be going in the Direction of 'Depth rather than much Pop out which is great But its nice to have Some Pokey in your Eye moments even if theres a little Xtalk with it .

I am wondering if it was the fault of the Cinema, did Prometheus have a feeling of depth to it?

I have read that Prometheus had great depth to it and is right up there with Avatar for it's 3D, never seen it myself though.  I think David's brother enjoyed it and he has info on his site about it.

I want to add that i personally like 3D films with some nice pop out of the screen moments, depth is all well and good but a 3D film without some coming right at ya moments would disappoint me.
