3D Without So Many kW
Hollywood today has gone positively real-life: Costumes are amazing; actors are trained in every nuance of their characters; the most outlandish off-world sets and locations seem real. And the technology? It picks up on every bit of it. No longer can soap flakes be used to simulate snow. Today's unforgiving cameras will tell their tales, especially in 3D.
More and more 3D cinemas are coming online around the world. And a tidal wave of stereoscopic 3D films is hitting those theaters. For the teeny bopper in your world, "One Direction: This Is Us" will drop on August 30th (Try picturing their hair in 3D). For a completely different musical taste, "Metallica Through The Never" will hit theaters on September 27th, and the action-adventure set will be ready for "Thor: The Dark World" on November 8th.
The upside for you as the movie viewer is a more impressive sensory experience, and a cinephile who is going for that experience in the house--achievable thanks to amazing Blu-Ray technology--is likely to invest in a 3D home theater system. Home theaters are big business and big fun...with big electrical usage.

But if you go now to New-York City's Flatiron building, you will be able to watch -and to shot in 3D- a truly cardboarded "Nighthawks" recreation.
