Good, reliable information on this new U2 concert film seems hard to come by. It appears to come out today exclusively in IMAX 3-D, with digital 3-D presentations opening in February.

I see nothing on the IMAX website regarding this movie, yet, amazingly, it appears to be playing in over 50 IMAX venues.

So, here's what I have for the North American venues opening the film on January 23. In a few days, I'll revise the post and add the digital-presentation locations.

This is probably because U2:3D is not a release co-ordinated by IMAX. Distribution is being handled by National Geographic.

We get the movie in 4 weeks time. It will open in the UK February 22nd

Wow. Wherever you got this from, they seriously need to update their listings. Channelside hasn't been Regal for at least a couple years.

Well, the DMR stuff wasn't released by IMAX, either! You'd think IMAX Corp. would be eager to slap "The Imax 3-D Experience" onto the title and promote the hell out of it.

This is simply an oversight on my part. Looks like I never removed "Regal" from my master list, which I use as the starting point for all of these listings. I'm allowed to make an occasional mistake, aren't I?!

For continued discussion of this film (unless your comments are IMAX-specific) and for updated versions of the list of theaters showing it (including the digital presentations), see this thread instead.

The difference is that all the titles shown on IMAX.com have been converted in to their DMR versions with the help of the DKP70mm ,a subsidiary of Imax Corp. The big "I" has also negotiated with the various studios to bring those titles in to their theatres.

The U2 film passed through RPG and of course National Geographic did the deal.

Of course. I did not know you maintained this list. I thought you copied it from another site. Which is why I said wherever you got it from needs to update their list, not you need to update your list.

The IMAX brand name is in the U23D trailer: "In Digital and IMAX Theaters." If the movie had been released with no formal affiliation with IMAX the tagline would have just said "In Digital and Large Format Theaters" instead.

Interestingly, the IMAX site does indicate that all of the DMR'd titles are "produced/distributed by IMAX Corporation"

IMAX was not mentioned in the trailer I saw. Only reference was to the company 3eality Digital. Of course, this was last year when the movie's release was scheduled for, I think, November or December, so maybe a newer trailer was made.

Whatever the case, since the intent of the producers is to showcase their product in 3D to as large an audience as possible, I think making 15/70 prints and booking in IMAX theaters, as with "Beowulf," was an afterthought once it was realized that there simply are not that many 3D-capable venues.

Unnecessary dual threads

Please combine the 3D and LF discussion.

P.S. Imax Corporation operates the Arizona Mills Imax, not Harkins (Harkins operates the separate 24-plex).
