Until? (Off-Topic)

I usually do it for the experience, like I did with IMAX Into Darkness, Dark Knight Rises? and regular Avengers (all totally worth the extra bling spent). However, I do admit the times where I find it worth it are getting rarer and rarer.

We put an effort into seeing Hobbit in 3D, IMAX, and in 60fps. It was pretty surreal and worth it. Usually only IMAX or only 3D doesn't enhance the experience enough for me to justify the price or gas money. Plus 3D is usually pretty cheesy and gives me headaches.

If anything, the thing I crave in a theater experience is just silence (and quality visuals and sound, of course), which I can rarely find. If I do, I can lose myself in a movie and forget my surroundings. If I can get to that point, I forget I'm even watching 3D or IMAX, as the movie itself has already wrapped itself around me on its inherent qualities.

So what would get me excited is an Enforced Quality Audience format, where microphones and light detectors are in every armrest, alerting guards to escort these distractions out (who are then barred forever from the premises). That would enhance the movie lightyears beyond 3D for me. :)
