Latest Movie News Headlines

Check out the new list of AMC/Cinemark/Regal theaters where you can see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in high frame rate 3D and listen to a full track from the score

Nov. 9, 2012by: Alex Maidy

I haven't purchased advanced tickets to a movie in a long time. I have about five theaters in close proximity to me so I always seem to have luck finding a seat on opening weekend. That being said, I am definitely intrigued to check out THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY in 3D and in 48fps. So, when I saw The Film Stage had listed the theaters showing the new Peter Jackson movie in the higher frame rate, I instantly checked for something near me. Lo and behold, not a single theater in my state! What the f*ck?

This could be an early list with more theaters to come. We do still have a month until the movie hits theaters. It would be shocking to me that not a single theater in the Chicago area would have the ability to show 48fps. Either that will change or I will have to settle 24fps.

Here is the "complete" list of theaters showing the high frame rate 3D:

Am I just blind

or is Chicago not one of the cities getting a 48fps presentation? How can that be? As someone mentioned below, I hope this is just a list of Regal locations, and AMC et al simply haven't released theirs yet. If not, that will be quite disappointing; I so want to see both, although haven't decided yet whether I want to see it first in the fps I am familiar with, or see it in the format that Jackson prefers it to be viewed in.

B.S. on no 48 fps in 2-D!

I was willing to give PJ the chance to sell me on 48 fps, but not if I have to suffer a 3-D movie! So after all his attempts to push this new technology, looks like I'll see it in tried-and-true 24fps 2-D. And guess what? I'll be damned happy to see it in that format!

i'll be in London for when the movie comes out and will definitely be going to a midnight Imax premier.I dont know if i'm disappointed or relieved that it isnt playing in the 48fps. I'm still curious as to what it looks like

Sac IMAX

Sacramento IMAX always gets screwed over, have to wait like 3-4 months until after a movie is released before it plays there, and it's true IMAX, bunch of crap!

I love how obscure cities like Foothill Ranch (CA), Beavercreek (OH), Kennesaw (GA), Salisbury (MA), and Deer Park (NY) are on the list, but major U.S. cities like Nashville (TN), Jacksonville (FL), Dallas (TX), New Orleans (LA), Birmingham (AL), Jackson (MS), Cleveland (OH), Memphis (TN), Oklahoma City (OK), St. Louis (MO), Seattle (WA), Indianapolis (IN), and Virginia Beach (VA) are left out.

Sure, here is the link to Regal's announcement page: [link]

Bleeding Cool got there info from here, then The Film Stage sourced Bleeding Cool, and then JoBlo sourced Thr Film Stage (but didn't mention the part about it only being Regal)

Wow...this is bullshit, the 48fps 3D version is only being shown in 11 of the 50 states (in the U.S.). I'm sick of California and New York getting everything, and the rest of us get screwed all the time. My state didn't even get The Dark Knight Rises "Bane Prolouge" before Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, even though we have 15 (true) IMAX screens in the state.

The theatre down the street from my apartment has it! Couldn't ask for that to work out any better I suppose.

Oh my goodness...

That music. That music. It's so beautiful.

And even though I swore off 3D, I was still looking forward to checking out this new frame-rate, so hopefully other theaters pick it up as well.

ugh, 3d??

The higher frame rate is only available in 3D? I'm not familiar with the technology behind it, does it absolutely HAVE to be this way, or was this the studio's choice? I was looking forward to checking out 48 fps but if I can only experience that with 3D, then no thanks, i'll stick with 2D and 24 fps!

Yes, yes, exactly! Can't stand 3-D here, I don't care HOW good they say it is. That is not how I want to experience my movies! But I was willing to give 48fps a try. Hopefully they'll fix this.

It's in my town, which is strange enough because it's not a major city, but after hearing the criticisms of the presentation, I'd prefer regular IMAX....
