As you no doubt understand, many people here (myself included) do get sad and/or angry about what's happened to 3D TV so it's really important that the ongoing discussion doesn't keep on fragmenting into multiple threads because whatever the intent they all ultimately end up having interchangeable posts and a cumulatively depressing effect. You wouldn't believe how many identical ones I've merged together already and how many are still left to review...

The future of 3D movies though, that's a different discussion and one that deserves its own thread. I seriously doubt theatrical 3D is going anywhere.
Thank you again for the kind words Mr. 13th. You are a safe harbor in a stormy sea. I noticed you couched the word "movies" very carefully. Does that include 3d blu rays as well? You almost sound like the theatre will continue to have 3d but you're not so sure about blu ray 3ds. But I don't want to put words into your mouth.

I did do a couple of threads a while back that indicated the number of 3d blu rays produced in the last year was, I felt, not enough to have the industry interested in continuing to produce 3d blu rays.
See:

Again we appreciate very much all you have done for this site. It is a wonderful place now for all looking for 3d information.

Thanks Bill - I did couch my words carefully because there are already too many threads about blu-ray sales, I'm still working on merging them together - at the moment into this one.

I'm still not particularly convinced that we really need a thread separate from the "Is 3D (TV/blu-ray) dead?" thread, as that also covers blu-rays but if the discussion stays on topic around the numbers of discs produced/released I'm happy to leave it separate.

As for this thread, it makes sense to leave it to discuss 3D cinema generally, as theatrical 3D is increasingly being treated by the industry as something separate from home 3D. Not only that, but it's been around for generations so I do believe it is "here to stay". Again, I still have a lot of general threads to review so if it turns out we already have such a thread I'll merge it in with this one.

Iím far more interested in home 3D. That way I can access vintage titles. The only films that get 3D treatment are the blockbusters and they are becoming tiresome in the main.

Yes. Perfectly good sense to separate them. They have become very different topics: is 3d dead in general, 3d cinema's future, and 3d blu ray's future. Well done. Any chance on stickying these three or combining them in one sticky? Bill

Domestic 3D box office fell 18% in 2018. That's not good certainly, though I think the article (and it's headline and first sentence show a clear bias), overdoes it a bit making the primary comparison to 2010, when 3D was at its height, and less about the last few years.

Also there were 15% fewer 3D release than last year, which suggests the actual attendance on 3D showings that are available isn't dropping quite as bad as the 18% figure would suggest.

Just more doom and gloom written by someone who knows little to nothing about the subject. We DO need another movie that makes really great use of 3D though- I've heard Ready Player One might be that (haven't seen it myself), but they obviously haven't promoted that enough, and there are still too many 2D showings of that.

I know others disagreed, but for me, this is a clear indication that last year was a poor year in terms of the output of 3D films (quality, rather than quantity). What we’re looking for are 3D movies that will draw in crowds that would not normally see movies in 3D.

This year looks much much better.

Although I seriously doubt that we’ll see similar articles being written if 3D revenue goes up this year.

Perhaps part of it is the studios are making it difficult for the consumer to buy 3D titles to add to their home collections.
I would have purchased Trolls, Ferdinand, Nutty By Nature 2, hell even Rock Dog (I like animation) day one if they were available.

Why bother showing them in the theater in 3D if you are not going to sell them to the consumer? Many people do not go to theaters but prefer watching movies at home.

Just my opinion

“Ant-Man and the Wasp,” with its colorful, almost cosmic presentation of the microscopic world its titular heroes buzz through, looked like the sort of film that would best be enjoyed with 3D glasses on.

But the weekend box office numbers showed that really wasn’t the case: Only 17 percent of its $75.8 million opening weekend gross came from 3D ticket sales
I had to attend a 10PM showing of Antman and the Wasp to see in 3D in IMAX Laser. There were no other times available at the theater except 10PM.

I'd like to know how many of those 3-D screenings of Antman and the Wasp were shown at an ideal time like 7PM.

A 2.1 billion dollar industry is not going to go away soon. As the article implied, attendance is film dependent and with those like the last Jurassic Park and Dr Strange entries, 3D accounted for a large portion of ticket sales.

IMAX dropping it might be due to the higher cost of tickets as well as not having the many blockbuster hits to keep it going.

For the umpteenth time, they need to STOP charging extra for 3D!

IMAX doesn't know what it's doing these days. Besides the 2D showings, my local one has had a dark picture, and they turned the house lights ALL THE WAY UP during the end credits the past few times I went.

It looks like the 3D theatrical window for movies is shrinking and shrinking, which is unfortunate. When a movie that I am interested in is released in 3D, I only go to the 3D version. The only times I haven't were with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (just waited too long) and Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (3D version wasn't released in my city). As a consequence, I've been to close to 70 3D movies since 2007. I don't usually go to a movie in the first week of release, and even prefer to wait until the third week. However, it's increasingly becoming impossible with 3D movies, because except for two theaters in my city, the 3D disappears after the first week.

I like 3D in general. It can make sometimes spice up movies that are otherwise marginal. I do believe, though, that with the decline in showings, the effort put into the 3D has declined as well. Many times in recent years I have struggled even to notice that the movie I'm watching is in 3D, because if it's not CGI action, the depth isn't very good. People complain about the brightness, but that is purely the fault of the theater. I have had bad experiences with brightness, but have also found theaters where it's been as vibrant as a 2D movie.

Anyway, just some musings from a new poster.

I am thankful that IMAX 3d is still readily available (in the first week of the big cities at least). In Houston, nearly every 3d movie released this year has been available on several IMAX 3d theaters at least for the first week or so. AMC uses their laser AMC Dolby Cinema Dolby Vision theaters to show the best 2d 4k HDR examples which frees IMAX to show the best 3d (so you can choose whether to see a given movie in 2d laser Dolby vision hdr or IMAX 3d... I always choose 3d for 3d movies). In houston there are like 5+ Laser AMC Dolby Cinema projectors and like 7-12 good IMAX 3d projectors. Just saw Alpha in IMAX 3d this weekend which I believe is not a big blockbuster but they did at least choose to show it on at least two IMAX 3d theaters in my area and was available at several normal times accross the day. In general, the IMAX and Amc laser Dolby Cinema projectors are used for new releases though so it is best to get tickets in the first week since new movie releases happen every week. However, RealD 3d projectors then at least continue to show 3d releases for several weeks/months... but IMAX 3d is brighter, bigger, and just a better overall 3d picture quality projector. AMC did choose to use its bright laser AMC Dolby Cinema projectors to show Star Wars in 3d last year which looked amazing due to its bright laser projection... Even better than IMAX 3d.

I was visiting a friend overseas when Ant-Man & the Wasp came out and they had it in 4D. I really enjoyed the 3D in this movie and will definitely import it (since Disney wonít sell it in the US). I couldíve done w/o the motion-ride effects of the 4D. Also, they kept spraying a forest aroma, even when he was drinking coffee

Anyway...Iím hanging on to my fading Sony 3D tv as long as I can to enjoy these movies at home.
