 The El Capitan is a truly magical place to watch a movie. They literally open about six layers of curtains before starting the show. They also do retrospectives during slow patches of the year, so you can see Pinocchio or Beauty and the Beast on the big screen. (They do The Nightmare Before Christmas every Halloween.) Glad Bob popped his El Cap cherry with such an awesome film!

Karas1 you must live in a cheap place $19 for just plain megaplex theatre. They have opened a theatre close by that has no minor shows that is $22.

 It was expensive but worth it. The first time I saw Avengers it was for $9.50 at midnight, in 2D.

I still have yet to see The Avengers. I need to scrape together the $25 it costs to see a movie in 3D in Australia. My fanboy credentials have taken a real hit lately.

We all need to go back to the theaters this weekend, EVERYBODY, lol, especially you BlatchSkree!!!!

I know I'm definitely going back, I still can't get over at how well Mr Whedon directed Avengers.

Well, I don't much like 3D.  I wear glasses and having a second set of glasses on my face is uncomfortable.  Aside from Avatar, the 3D in movies I've seen hasn't impressed me.  Whenever I see a movie it's in 2D unless 3D is the only format it's available in.

I saw Avengers in my local theater in 2D.  I went with my Mom.   You wouldn't think a 74 year old woman would be the expected demographic but since she's partialy disabled we see a lot of movies together.  It's a nice activity that doesn't require a lot of walking around.  She liked Iron Man and Thor.  And hey, who do you think turned me on to scifi in the first place.  It was my mother who held me on her lap to watch ST:TOS when I was 2.

If you're interested in her opinion, she enjoyed the movie until the big fight scene at the end which she thought was over long.  Once you've seen the Avengers battle one flying mechanical whale you don't need to see them take on 5 more.

But I digress.  When we go out together she buys the tickets and I buy the snacks.  I paid $13.75 for two small popcorns and drinks and I usually lay out more for snacks than she does for tickets.  Of course she gets a senior discount.

So I think that $16 for one ticket is outrageous.

@Karas1 - I agree with you 100%, I cant stand having to wear those 3D glasses, to me, it takes away from my viewing pleasure.
