Letter to the editor: 3D not considered enhancement

3D not considered enhancement

I am disheartened by the number of 3D movies that are out.

Every time I see a trailer that looks appealing, it is followed by the announcement, “In 3D,” and my heart sinks.

Many friends I have spoken to have severe headache issues following a 3D movie. Shouldn’t we, as consumers, have a choice between 3D or 2D?

I actually took my family of four to Lubbock to see “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in 2D because it was only offered locally in 3D. That is money I’d much rather be spending locally.

I have always been an avid supporter of our local movie theater, seeing three to six movies each month. It upsets me that I now have to consider going to Lubbock so I can see them in a format that doesn’t give me a severe five-hour headache. The alternative is to await the release of the DVD, which is not my favorite option. I very much enjoy attending movies at the theater on a regular basis. This 3D fad has begun to limit the movies that Clovis residents are able to see locally. I know that this is not merely my own isolated personal opinion, having spoken to many friends and family members. It would be nice to have the option between 2D and 3D.
