I was wondering, when you book tickets online with Cineworld do you get given you're seat?

Also, for the IMAX screening of 3D films are the glasses just the standard Real D 3D ones?

You don't get a given seat number when you book online unless it's D-Box

Only certain Cineworld's have allocated seating, if there is no option when you book online then it will be unreserved seating.

You get supplied special 3D glasses before IMAX screenings which you hand back in after the screening, these are different from the standard Real D ones.

Sorry Cunningham but you're wrong there, Cineworld hand out special IMAX 3D glasses for their IMAX 3D films which you have to return after the screening. The IMAX 3D glasses are different to the Real D ones, so your Real D ones wont work on the IMAX screen as far as i know. The IMAX glasses don't cost extra though, so you don't need to worry about any additional cost.

I took my standard Real D 3D ones and ended up with these huge IMAX ones.

I think the only difference is the style and size, because it was Real D 3D and not proper IMAX 3D.

I'm not sure if the standard ones would be big enough for such a big screen so you have to use the bigger ones.

I was going to test my standard Real D 3D glasses but got sucked into to the film when shit kicked off.

Even though Cineworld in Birmingham have a Digital IMAX screen and projector, they use RealD 3D and not Imax Digital 3D.

It depends on the Cineworld regarding seat numbers. When I lived in Newcastle, the Bolden cinema gives seat numbers (and still did when I last visited in November), however I now use the Enfield (London) and Stevenages Cineworlds and neither give seat numbers.

It depends on your cinema if you book at my local you get to pick your seat and do get a seat number.

The projectors they use in Cineworld Birminghams IMAX are Digital IMAX projectors but the 3D is RealD 3D.

The Glasses are labeled IMAX yet they are just bigger Real D 3D glasses.

I wish we didn't have all this LieMAX shit going.

Some people will go there thinking they are seeing a true IMAX 3D screening, when they are not seeing true IMAX or IMAX 3D.

I can pick my seat if I buy the ticket at the cinema, but not online.

I prefer Odeon's booking system, even if you do have to pay a small booking fee.
