Miami Cineplex adds 3D capabilities
Not only is the Miami Cineplex the only theater in Ottawa County – it is now going to be the only theater with 3D capabilities!
Chief Tom Gamble of the Miami Tribe says “We were very excited in March of 07 when we opened the theater but today is even more exciting as we take the Cineplex to the next level in entertainment! The addition of a digital projector will not only allow for 3D movies but also allows the theatre to project events concerts and even gaming devices such as X-Box. The possibilities are endless!”
While 3D movies date back to the 1950s the modern technology is nothing less than state-of-the-art. The technology enhances the movie-going experience and 3D movies are the latest rage. This month Disney/Pixar is releasing UP a comedy adventure about a balloon salesman who ties thousands of balloons to his house to fly away only to discover an 8 year old Wilderness Explorer named Russell has surprisingly stowed away on the journey. Not only is Pixar releasing several new movies in 3D they are also set to re-release Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D later this year.
Audiences viewing any 3D movie at the Miami Cineplex will be given a pair of 3D glasses. The cost to view a 3D movie will be an additional 2 to cover the expenses of the glasses. The glasses have circular polarized lenses each polarized differently which adds to the visual effect.
Chief Gambles adds “As a Tribe this is another opportunity for us to help promote Miami. To be able to offer 3D which isn’t available in Joplin or Grove is a tremendous asset to our community. We are pleased to be able to do this.”
May 29th will be the opening day for 3D at the Miami Cineplex in conjunction with the release of Disney/Pixar’s 3D movie – UP.
