And Where Will You See Tron on Friday?
Anyway. To the actual point of this post: Two new movie theaters are scheduled to open Friday -- well, one's new and the other's a long-awaited rehab. But, still. At long last Regent's Highland Park Village Theatre reopens with "two large theaters with plush seating, premium sound and all-digital projection"; the two smaller theaters will be available for rentals. Lori Stahl has the screening schedule, which is awful nice.
And Tron: Legacy's playing HPV, all right. Except, well, don't you wanna see the 3D version on a really big screen? Like, something ginormous? A place where you can just turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream? Some place, I dunno ... extreme? Then you're in luck, especially if you live up Frisco way: Cinemark sends word it's opening its 12-screen megalplex in Frisco Square Friday as well. Says here it has "wall-to-wall screens, 100% digital projection and enhanced sound systems equipped with higher quality speakers and 7.1 capable digital surround sound." Also: "The Cinemark Frisco Square complex will contain an extremely popular Cinemark XD Extreme Digital Cinema auditorium." Well, that's more like it.
