Overkill? Are you kidding me? No way is this overkill.

I would LOVE to see this in 3D, but they aren't even showing it in my state let alone city. Closest venue, as I feared, is the Chicago area (about 4 hours, one-way). I've done the Chicago and back in one day trip before so it's possible.

As someone who can catch a 3D film for $4-5 locally, I'm kind of scared to see what the ticket price will be.

Yes, Overkill...

RobertTrate 10/24/2013 12:47:54 PM

 In no way is this overkill... imagine what Paramount will do for Star TRek and thier 50th!

raynardmuldrake 10/24/2013 2:54:06 PM

Closest one for me is Atlanta..which is 5 hours one way. And agreed on it NOT being Overkill!

Dazzler 10/25/2013 7:37:50 AM

ohh it's in Woodridge, I am so might being there maybe...

HomestarRunner 10/25/2013 9:04:58 AM

Tickets sold out within 5-10 minutes. A friend of mine tried to get tickets for Woodridge, but it didn't show up on Fandango until it was sold out. I saw that Cinemark listed it a few minutes early but I didn't order tickets because my friend was the one buying them. Big mistake on my part.

Oh well. I'll just have to watch it in boring old 2D at home. First world problems, eh?

pablo1999 10/25/2013 10:52:11 AM

DAMN - I was hoping for a Florida location... Atlanta is about 8 hours away.  No way will I be able to make that trip.  Whole family is hooked on WHO but that is a bit more of a commitment then I am ready to make... Guess I'll just have to watch it on BBCA.  BRING ON DAY OF THE DOCTOR...

I'm hoping they respond to the obviously high demand and expand the number of screens. Given that they have a month to work it out, I would think that they could make it happen.

not over kill at all several states have no theater in them at all about 300 theaters would be good. i find it amazing that my local theater showed a My Little Pony movie but no where can i go and celebrate 50 years of the Doctor
