, which I have a love/exasperated relationship with, but nonetheless read:
The San Francisco one will be at the Metreon IMAX, 7pm show
. I've decided to go. Why, you ask? Of all the winter movies being released this year, Potter
doesn't appeal, and I'm perfectly happy to check out the prestige award movies (The King's Speech, Casino Jack) on DVD if at all. So, I bought the ticket not because I'm particularly excited for the actual movie, but more out of "why the heck not, at least that'll be something to see in IMAX 3D".
(Which gets me to thinking: why did Big Jim/Fox rush out the Avatar re-release
this summer, instead of now/at Christmas? Sure, the blu-ray and etc. weren't out then, but the movie was also a lot fresher on everyone's minds. I had no interest in seeing it twice in six months, but now that it's been almost a year, I'd definitely consider going again, especially given the competition.)
Anyway, I think it's cool that io9's sponsoring meetups, since my local friends are either too few, non-geeky, busy or broke to come along.
Anyone else going to any of these meetups?
