It's got to be fabulous in IMAX. I've only seen one IMAX movie (a Potter movie, of course), and I was so surprised at the detail and the colors and the sound.Thumper said:We're going to see it next week; the Boy is driving us into San Fransisco to see it on an IMAX screen. I can't wait. I've been a Trek fan since I was 11...that's a whole lotta years to have a crush on Spock
After previewing the movie for our kids last night, , we are taking our 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter today. I'll stay home with the 7 year old a watch "Hotel for Dogs" or something like that. It was intense, there was a make-out scene that DH will cover the kiddos eyes (they're used to this type of behavior - we did it for Ironman too), a torture scene - so beware.Gertie Kindle 'Turn to Page 390' said:Does anyone think the movie might be appropriate for an 11 year old boy who has never seen any Star Trek at all? If not, then I'll probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
Thanks, KM. He's as the point where make-out scenes make him go ICK and I think he'll dive under the chair with the torture scene. I'd better wait for the DVD.KindleMom said:After previewing the movie for our kids last night, , we are taking our 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter today.

I know DS will love it! But he's a huge Star Wars and LOTR fan. I would think the 11 year old will enjoy it. There's lots of spaceships, fighting, etc. And the story is easy to understand too. I'm not a Star Trek fan and loved this movie! DH who is a Trekkie loved it too!
Now, we plan to go see it at the Udvar-Hazy IMAX over at the air space museum. The only downside is no food or drink allowed in but we will survive.
At the Chantilly Air Space, it shows three times a day, 4:45p, 7:15p and 9:45p I checked and they are sold out for the weekend already. At the Air Space downtown, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonians will start on the 22nd. I am kinda surprised Star Trek is not being shown at the downtown Air Space.Ann in Arlington said:When is it showing there? That would be fun to go to!
As far as I know, you can. I know we have 9 people on our membership but that is because we actually have 9 people in the house. I don't think they ask to be sure all are members when we buy tickets.Ann in Arlington said:It's a really good price! The key is to fill up the car so the parking cost is amortized.
Do you know (sorry folks, this is a little off topic but I'll get back on in a sec) can a member buy tickets for non members? I see you have to buy them there or by phone rather than on line.
