'no 2D version of The Hobbit available, except in ONE cinema in Birmingham'
'OK, there will be two showings a day in 2D at the Plymouth cinema, but most of them will be 3D'
'Oh, all RIGHT. There will be as many 2D showings as 3D showings! Are you satisfied now???' (or that's how I read the changes to the time table anyway. There were many, many unhappy comments posted on their website about the lack of a 2D option).
They are showing it in High Frame Rate at that cinema too. There have been so many terrible reviews for the HFR technology that I am almost tempted to try it, just to find out if I agree. I think it would probably make me pretty nauseous though, so I will see it in 2D and then decide if I want to blow any more money on lurking through the film again, listening to the sound track and occasionally daring to peep cautiously at the screen.
