Jurassic Park 3D - Irish Release Date?

    The re-released 3D version (20 years after Jurassic Park first roared at us!) is out in the UK this weekend.

    For Ireland, Omniplex cinemas show some info, but not much! Same for Odeon Cinemas.

    Anyone know when it is actually released here? Can't wait to see it (again) - the 3D re-working and sound-work are getting praise anyway!

    I thought it was out in the IMAX already but the screenings are at stupid times with the latest being half five. Unfortunately may have to miss it because of that.

    Seems shockingly low-key for such a release! :confused:

    Outside of Dublin (while we're waiting for this to be built) it must surely have a "regular" 3D cinema release!?

    I'd rather see it on the big screen in 3d rather than at home.

    I can't watch 3D films in cinema in my area screen is too dark they don't have strong enough bulbs to show the film at 100% . 3D at home for me is the best option I have.

    It doesn't even have a regular 3d release in cineworld. Don't know about other cinemas in Dublin though.

    It was on Cineworlds website earlier in the week, showing at 11:30, 2:30 and 5:30 from tomorrow onward. And Elysium was showing all day in IMAX today, but is only showing from 8:30 tomorrow. Didn't see it on anyone elses schedules.

    Was planning on taking a half day to go see this, have already made the arrangements. Will be v. annoyed if they've cancelled it.

    ^ Same as above, I can't find anywhere playing this all of a sudden??


  • Registered Users Posts: 892 ✭✭✭Doodlebug


    Is it all an InGen™ cover-up?!
    :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,880 ✭✭✭Raphael


    Gave Cineworld a ring, they said that it's showing at 11:30, 2:30 and 5:30, despite the lack of evidence. Will be heading in for the 2:30, I'll report back.

    Were you able to book tickets for it?

    A friend of mine went into cineworld yesterday to ask about it. Apparently its planned to be showing on their imax screen, but they are having problems with the projector and don't know if it will be up and running by saturday, hence it was taken down from the website.

    Hopefully they can get it working, does any know if the Odeon are playing it in the iSense?

    Is this looking like it's only being confined to iMax screens then? Or has anyone around Cork found a cinema that is showing it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 892 ✭✭✭Doodlebug

    Jeez - hope not! I've emailed 2 cinema companies asking about it - their sites still suspiciously empty on the important details though (see 1st post)!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,815 ✭✭✭SimonTemplar


    I rang Cineworld and they confirmed that they are showing it in iMAX eventhough it wasn't listed on their site - they are having IT issues (as usual). 17:30 is still the latest screening however.

    I'm unsure if they are showing any non-iMAX screenings, I didn't ask - I'm only interested in the iMAX.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,880 ✭✭✭Raphael


    2.30 and 5.30, in the queue for tickets now. Just IMAX 3d. iSense is just showing Elysium as far as I can see


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 edbankyscar


    Does anyone know if its on tomorrow, Saturady the 24th?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,014 ✭✭✭✭Corholio


    It seems just a 3D Imax showing, no listings for anywhere in Cork.

    Very disappointed :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 5 edbankyscar


    Sorry I should have said does anyone know if Cineworld Dublin/Imax are showing screenings tomorrow, Saturday the 24th?

    Looks like it's IMAX only (according to UK Distributors anyway).

    With a grand total of 1 IMAX in the country, I s'pose it's Blu-Ray-3D or bust!

    Crap-o-la.

    It's getting a regular 3D release as well, probably in a month or two, but they won't announce dates until after the IMAX-only run is finished. They are exploiting the die-hard fans first to prop up IMAX ticket sales. There's little or no difference between properly projected 3D and IMAX 3D. They know this which is why they have to resort to this crap.


  • Registered Users Posts: 892 ✭✭✭Doodlebug


    Excellent! Just out of curiosity, where did you find this out? I've heard feck all back from the cinemas anyway! :)

    Actually on second thoughts I may be mistaken. I was under the impression that's what they did in the US, but it seems they released both versions simultaneously there.

    It seems strange for them to limit it to IMAX. Maybe it didn't do as well in the US as they hoped. There's no release date for the 3D Blu-ray yet, so there's still a chance they are planning a regular 3D release depending how well it does in IMAX.

    I saw this today, the 3d was actually very well done. I was also shocked at the lack of showings though...

    Where did you see it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,579 ✭✭✭charlietheminxx


    Cineworld in Dublin.... the only place it seems to be showing!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 232 ✭✭Pm1e


    Looks great, may make a trip down memory lane and go see it.
