These

The reviews talk about using it at home but does that automatically translate to the big screen? I'm new to this whole 3D thing and have never seen a movie in 3D but it's hard to see Gravity in a non 3D showing so thought I might as well.

Oh, and in case you're wondering why I won't use the cinema's, I don't fancy getting everybody's nose grease on me...

No because they are designed to work with the manufacturer's TV's, not cinema screens.

Take a small packet of anti-bacterial wipes with you to the cinema if you're that anal.

Those are active shutter glasses.

You need the 'passive' variety like those used by LG for their Cinema 3D sets.

Should be less than a pound on Ebay.

At my cinema you get them brand new in plastic packaging for 80p.

You do realise that the cinema 3D glasses come in a sealed bag and are either new or, if recycled, sterilised?

The only nose grease on them will be your own.

The best cinema 3D glasses for glasses wearers to use are clip-ons. They don't have the reflective effect you get from the house lights as the regular cinema glasses.

most cinemas use the old polaroid system as for film. video projection allows the technical possibility of shuttered glasses but there is little point. Very expensive glasses and only half the light and film unwatchable without the glasses. polaroid glasses would also be used for domestic tv were there a way of doing that but there isnt.

I didn't know that.

I hope they clean them properly between screenings.

I've seen 2 films in 3D at the cinema and wasn't overly impressed. Plus you have to pay 1 for the 'privilege' of owning a pair of 3D glasses! Its just not worth it. Id much rather watch a DVD at home.

They are supposed to disinfect them (at least that's what they claim).

I believe the shutter glasses give a sharper image..but the image can be darker (if they forget to adjust the brightness). The better cinema in our area did start off with shutter glasses (but recently switched to passive. I guess it just worked out cheaper in the long run).
