If you’ve ever been to a 3D movie before, then you already know how much fun it can be. And so, you’re probably assuming that this is not an article that you need to read. However, it’s highly recommended that you check it out anyway. The reason why is because it’s going to share with you some tips that will help you get the absolute most out of your 3D movie-viewing experience.
Are you curious to know what you can specifically do to enjoy watching 3D movies more than ever before? If so, please read on.
Research the theaters beforehand. Initially, it might not make much sense why it’s a good idea to research the theaters that are in your area before actually going to them. However, the reality is that not all movie theaters are made equal; some simply have better technology than others. If you have a theater in your area that happens to have an IMAX viewing room, that would probably be your best bet when it comes to getting the most of out of 3D movie experience.
Go at the right time of day. If you were going to watch a 3D movie from the comfort of your own home, it would definitely be best to watch it when it’s dark outside. But what about when you’re at a theater? Does the time of day matter? When it comes to the level of darkness inside of the theater itself, it doesn’t. But being that a lot of 3D glasses are charged with batteries and movie workers tend to only charge them right before leaving work in the evening, you can get glasses that are fully-charged if you go during matinee times.
Ask about the glasses. Speaking of the 3D glasses, it’s pretty common for movie theaters to recycle the ones that they have. But being that 3D movies tend to be a bit on the pricey side (sometimes they’re as much as $15-20 per ticket), you are well within your rights to request a new pair. You can tell if they are new if you are handed some that come in a sealed package.
Position yourself correctly in the theater. If you were to ask someone who works at a company like American Paper Optics about what else you can do to get the absolute most out of your 3D movie watching experience, something that they might recommend is that you pay close attention to where you sit inside of the theater. In order to get the most out of all of the special effects, it’s best if you sit about halfway from the front of the screen, somewhere in the middle.
Consider watching the movie at home. If you’re looking for a way to save some money on tickets and concessions, you might want to consider watching a 3D movie at home. Although initially it might seem a bit complex to set it up, there are websites that can walk you through the process of how to make your living room or bonus room seem a lot like going to the movie theater. One of them is HomeTheater.About. Go to the site and put “complete guide to watching 3D movies at home” in the search field.
