When Avatar shattered box-office records in 2009, many attributed the movie’s success to 3D’s profitability. And not just because viewers were intrigued, but because tickets cost more. But after a decade of blockbusters and kids movies cynically presented in 3D as a means to monetize, the goose that laid the golden egg is dead. Now, 3D is relegated to a handful of movies that seek to use the technology with invention and creativity. Enter China’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, one of the best films of 2019. The final shot runs a full 58 minutes and is in glorious 3D. CU’s IFS and Program Council will present the movie — possibly the only time it’ll show on the Front Range in 3D — Nov. 7, and tickets cost nothing.
