gehenna: Skycity and Reading are the only 3D cinemas in the Wellington region. Reading use the glasses that you have to give back.

Sky City (queensgate) use the expensive, hand back glasses too.

Booked the seats for Reading not realising SkyCity had Dolby 3D as well. However, I looked at the online booking system for SkyCity and the Avatar 3D theatre looks at least half the size of the Reading one - seating-wise anyway.

Also, only two seats for SkyCity had been booked (at the very back), as where Reading had several seats already booked - mainly in the back-half in the middle.

So in Auckland SkyCity Cinemas uses Dolby Digital 3D that uses coloured filter glasses that you need to give back.

Hoyts in Silvia Park used RealD with circular polarised lenses that you get to keep ($1).

Has anyone been to both? Which is better?

i'm guessing, i reckon dolby 3d would be better.

after all, how good could $1 glasses be?
