Gravity IMAX 3D (Film and Mingle EVENT)

"Words can do little to convey the visual astonishment this space opera creates. It is a film whose impact must be experienced in 3-D on a theatrical screen to be fully understood". -Kenneth Turan, LA Times

"In a little more than 90 minutes [it] rewrites the rules of cinema as we have known them". - A O Scott, New York Times

"Watch this film on the biggest screen you can find, in 3D IMAX if possible!" - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times  

This film is currently the highest-rated film of 2013 at 98% on Rottentomatoes.com which peaked my curiosity because the trailer that I saw months ago didn't really interest me. After my recent research of this film, I knew this film has to be experienced on IMAX 3D. 

I am opening up the RSVP but the only way to reserve your seat at this event is to make payment to join our special MovieClub seating section. So RSVP may indicate your interest, but you need to make PAYMENT to confirm your place at this event!

4 STARS out of 4 Review by James Berardinelli from Reelviews.com

"If ever there was a case to be made for 3-D as a valuable cinematic tool, Alfonso Cuaron has made it. Put alongside Avatar and Hugo (with honorable mentions going to Prometheus and Life of Pi), Gravity shows the power of 3-D when applied effectively and with vision. The immersive quality is undeniable and in some ways indefinable. 

Cuaron's stated goal with Gravity is to put the viewer in space with the characters and he accomplishes this. The film will lose something if viewed in conventional 2-D and it will lose more when shrunk for home viewing. This review and 4/4 rating for Gravity is based on viewing it on a big screen in 3-D. That's the way Cuaron wants it to be seen. That's how he envisioned it, developed it, and filmed it. 

Hollywood has so badly overused and abused 3-D, turning it into a gimmicky cash cow, that it's almost shocking to acknowledge what it can add to the theatrical experience when employed by a director who knows what he's doing. 

Gravity isn't just a movie; it's almost transformative, and the visceral element is enhanced by the 3-D" 

-James Berardinelli, Reelviews.com

    Yes, a big thank you, Kelvin

    This movie is definitely worth watching on IMAX 3D. The immersive feeling of being in space with the characters is something that has to be experienced to be understood. The best rows are G,H,I,J and the middle seats are 18 and 19. So G18,19, H18,19, I18,19, J18,19 are the absolute bang-for-your-buck. Book it before others do.

    Thanks everyone for showing up and spending your mid-week with us. I hope you continue participating in other MovieClub events and become more familiar with others here and have more awesome shared experiences. !

    Got a slight headache as the 3D specs did not fit well over my specs... Nevertheless, I got to say that this movie is worth watching over 3D. This is indeed a show that is worth watching in 3D. If you are planning to download it... I would suggest you not to do so. Watching it over computer screen is not going to give you the same visual effect. The plot is relatively simple... The graphics is the amazing part. I seldom pay any attention to graphics as I am more into story lines. However the beauty of this movie is in the graphics. Watch in 3D or do not watch at all.

  • Kelvin K

    Just a quick note: this film was envisioned in 3D by director Alfonso Cuarón and the critical consensus is that 3D is the best way to experience this film. Those who have done their research about this film know why I'm choosing to go IMAX 3D. Thank you to those who have already started to make payments. I want to book the best seats within the IMAX cinema before they are taken up by the public so those who are joining us next Wednesday, kindly make payment within the next 48 hours! Thanks.

    Dear members, I was unexpectedly assigned an oversea trip this week, and it might be difficult for me to organize this event. Luckily Kelvin has kindly agreed to replace me as the organizer for this event. You will receive detailed instruction from Kelvin about this movie. Enjoy your weekend!

    1 · October 6, 2013

    • Kelvin K

      Payment details have been announced! :)

      October 7, 2013

  • Owen

    I just close the RSVP as I hope to limit the total number of attendees to below 20 :). The reason is I hope to have a smaller group in which everyone will get a chance to know everyone else. Given that we typically have 50% of people actually pay for the tickets, 40 people is the limit. I will send out details for payment once the schedule is out.

    October 4, 2013

    • Bong L.

      How to do the payment?
