Recently watched 'Avatar-Special edition' at Big Cinema,TGIP Noida. Very bad expirence. Screen was so small,goggle was so inconvenient to wear and in bad shape(scratches and all). Picture looked almost black and white. Ruined my day. Believe me, it was many-many times worse than what i see on Blu-ray rip 720p on my LCD.

I Watched Life of Pi yesterday at TGIP, 3D effects are awesome, but as you said, their 3D glasses was really in bad shape, they also gave cleaning wipe for glasses, but still not Good.
Ruined the movie..
Next time, i'll bring my own glasses..

that's what i plan to do myself. i had asked my friend who has a 3D tv to carry his own units. but idiot said that cinema people would not let us take them in. lol. he actually asked the ushers in the theater if they allow people to bring their own glasses. i think i should get a unit for my own personal use. anyone can indicate where i can buy a good quality unit which would work in theaters?

Sick of the units they give us. Want to get a pair for myself. I do not have a 3D TV. I do not intend to buy one.

At TGIP, I'm Sure there is no problem in bringing your own 3D glasses, they let people inside with their belongings(College bag) which is generally not allowed in other places. Just put your own 3d glasses in bag, and switch when movie starts.Keep in mind,they use Passive 3D glasses, but DT Cinemas-Shalimar Bagh uses Active 3D Shutter glasses, this matters too..Passive 3D glasses are pretty cheap..

Passive 3D glasses will work in all theaters who use Passive 3D format, thats why those glasses were messed up.but your own Active 3D glasses may not work in theaters, because your glasses have to sync up with the movie.They rely on an infrared signal emitter in the TV that tells each pair of glasses when they should dim each lens, so each eye can see the image intended for it.

my friend has passive glasses provided by lg i think because they do not blink. but at least they are not filthy. i guess i would buy a passive unit. at least they should be better than what they provide in theaters!
