Metallica "Through The Never" in IMAX 3D

A different kind of show suggested by a Meetup member - metal gods Metallica have created an IMAX 3D movie whose trailer just debuted and it looks and sounds good! Let's take over the theater for a metal movie night! \m/

Movie info: http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/exclusive-metallica-never-trailer-mixes-concert-footage-mob-225846097.html

Tickets (buy tickets for the 10:15 pm showing): http://tickets.fandango.com/Transaction/Ticketing/ticketboxoffice.aspx?row_count=17038728&mid=165035&refreshdate=9/27/2013&tid=AAGBK

Cost is usually $20 for IMAX 3D shows. Buy your own tickets for the 10:15 pm show (no numbered seating) and we'll meet up there and try to sit together.

Post show drinks @Tommy's Joynt (http://www.tommysjoynt.com) across the street - Tommy's is where Metallica reformed after choosing Jason Newsted to replace Cliff Burton upon his death, in '86. Tommy's is cash only.

    MM members who initially responded Yes to this date/time are dropping like flies for various reasons, so I'll throw out a question - does this group prefer:
    a) To move the date/time to another date
    b) Keep today's show but move it to AMC Emeryville so the East Bay-ers (who have dropped out) can make it and avoid BART issues
    OR
    c) Stick to the current plan

    First 3+ votes besides my own will determine it...priority given to current Yes RSVP's.

    Unlike a show with a fixed date/time we have some flexibility, which is clearly both a bad and a good thing.

    On a related note, R.I.P. Cliff Burton - died today 27 years ago.

      I'm going to be driving from Oakland to the city for the movie, around 9 o'clock...if anyone's interested in a ride to the city.

      If it's not too late I would prefer changing the date

    I can't get there early enough to do pre-show drinks but if anyone's interested in getting a drink after the movie, we can hit up Tommy's Joynt right across the street - poetic because that's where Metallica reformed in '86 and chose Jason Newsted as Cliff Burton's replacement on bass. Tommy's is cash only so hit the ATM beforehand.

    I'll check in and comment when I'm on my way to the theater so those of you who are there and want to sit together, can coordinate.

    Can't wait!

    Suhneel, if you would, please keep us posted when tickets go on sale! :)

      Good point. IMAX has numbered/assigned seating so if we want to sit and do wolf calls together (esp. if they play "Of Wolf And Man") then we need to plan/coordinate ticket purchasing as a group! Will keep an eye out...

    • Suhneel R

      Tickets are on sale now - no numbered seating though. See the link in the description.

      I'm a maybe for this because unless they play the movie at 1.5 speed, I would prefer to go camping. XD

      September 13, 2013

    • Arjun

      im putting the camping trip up on the Norcal Hikers meetup group

    Sorry for the confusion folks - moving this back to its original date. Only thing that has changed is the venue: AMC Van Ness (where it's opening in IMAX 3D) instead of AMC Metreon (where it's not on IMAX 3D for some reason).

    Now, we also get the chief instigator (Manish) to attend, as well as those who responded to the original date/time.

  • Suhneel R changed the date and time from Friday, October 11, 2013 at 8:30 PM to Friday, September 27, 2013 at 8:30 PM

  • Manish P.

    Also I don't see it at the Metreon.. Rather it seems to be playing at AMC Van Ness.. Not real IMAX.. booo

    I found tickets are available now. but not through October 4th since it appears to be a limited engagement. Sooo I really don't know.

    September 11, 2013

    • Natalie

      Oh, I didn't realize that. Sorry!

      September 11, 2013

    • Arjun

      yea i prefer the 11th as my campign trip is the 27th. i also prefer to watch regular or non-3d IMAX, I hate watching 3D movies, the glasses are annoying and never stay on my face

      September 11, 2013

  • Suhneel R

    I can't do 10/4 (what the date was changed to), sounds like Natalie and some others can't do 9/27 (the original date) - how about we move back to 10/11 and whoever can make it, makes it.

    September 11, 2013

    • Natalie

      I can do 9/27, it just doesn't open til 10/4 :p

      Well no, not really. The SFMM went to the Big Four live feed and we had a great time! Pour a beer in an empty juice box, seal it up, enjoy!
