I think its economics coming into play here.
$15-ish per ticket is ridiculous when you can buy a new-release BD for around $20 and the entire family can watch together.

My family love to watch movies so it is actually cheaper in the long run to have a dedicated theatre with THX-ratio viewing distance.

Or as I've described it for years: 3D today is like those museum dioramas where they create a sense of depth by putting flat cardboard cutouts at different distances from the viewer who is looking through a small opening at the scene. It looks artificial, which is why it works best for animation, but not for live action. Today's 3D in no way imitates or duplicates what we see when we look at the world through our eyes. Two very different things.

There is a novelty in today's 3D especially for kids but it fails for live action with adults. Rather than bringing you INTO the scene in a live action film, all it does heighten the sense of artificiality. Hence the failures of most live action 3D films so far.

There was a story in the media a couple of days ago that may make us all want to hold off on getting a 3D TV. It seems scientists feel that they are close to creating a holographic style 3D image a bit like Princess Leia's (sp?) desperation hologram to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first Star Wars film. That was a true 3D image, one you could walk around and see all sides of the Princess. That's why I've referred to the 3D that's out today as cardboard cutout/viewmaster technology. It's very artificial. Holographic 3D by the way would NOT require special glasses.
