I ’ve been to see the Avengers Assemble movie twice – not because the film required a double sitting (even though it is good), but because the first time we were supposed to see it in Imax, someone who shall remain nameless booked the wrong tickets.

Of course, being huge movie fans, we just had to book and see it again at the Imax in Southampton.

The bits that were actually in Imax – about 30 minutes of the whole film – impressed me, but the rest was standard 3D.

Today is the UK release of the highly anticipated Prometheus movie, also available in Imax. So guess what I’ll be doing tonight?

Yep, trekking to Southampton again.

I fear movie-going has become a full-blown day out with a hefty price tag.
