I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who didn’t see Avatar last year. Well, that’s not really true. I know a few people. I’m pretty sure I’m only person who wanted to see it that didn’t and the only person who has friends that didn’t want to see it.
I avoided seeing it on Blu-Ray, waiting for some way to see it in 3D. Likely with a 3D TV in a few years. So imagine my excitement a few months ago when I heard that a Director’s Cut would be coming to theaters. Who cares about the extra footage, I just want to see it in 3D in a theater. Also, I figured it wouldn’t be too hard to find a few people at Penn State who would want to go.
This morning I went to check out the times at the local theaters only to find that it’s not playing in State College! What?!? Of course it’s at a few theaters back home. I had to expand my search to 100 miles before finding 3 theaters. That kills my opportunity to get anyone to go. I could talk someone in to a 5 minute drive to the theater. No one is going to go for a 4-hour round trip to see a 3-hour movie.
