    My closest IMAX is at The Tropicana in Atlantic City..the chick i am seeing loves AC so I suspect her motives may not be strictly related to my movie viewing experience. :right:

    [h=2]Caution: ‘The Hobbit’ may cause migraines, nausea[/h]Posted on December 5, 2012 By Hope Gillette Health

    Fans who were enamored with Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy have been anticipating the December 2012 release of the The Hobbit.According to a report from Movie Talk, however, the impressive imagery and new filming techniques in the movie may be more than many audiences bargained for.
    People in advanced screenings of The Hobbit in New Zealand have complained of nausea, dizziness and migraines after watching the movie.
    The health effects are the result of increasing the movie’s frame per second time from 24 to 48, a process which makes the images sharper and more realistic.
    Those additional frames per second, in addition to the 3D effects, made the images too distracting and intense for some viewers, indicated The New Zealand Herald, and one movie-goer who flew into the country for the premier stated their eyes could not take everything in.

    There was an IMAX flick about special effects in movies that came out in the early 90s.

    They reshot the opening scene from A New Hope and it was really amazing.

    Never have seen it on DVD. :coffee:
