2D Digital
2D Digital refers to movies projected using a digital projector. For most people, the difference between regular movie print (35mm) and 2D Digital isn't visible, especially when a movie has just been released. But a traditional movie reel might get scratches on it after repeated screenings, whereas digital movies will stay clear. Think of it roughly as cassettes vs. digital files in a hard disk or server.

RealD 3D
RealD is the 3D technology being used at blitzmegaplex cinemas. RealD uses image polarization, projected onto a special silver screen which reflects back light, to create bright, crips, ultra-realistic images for the viewers.

All 3D auditoriums at blitzmegaplex locations uses RealD 3D Technology. The difference in 3D pricing is due to location, not due to any difference in quality.

3D Clip-Ons
When you watch a 3D movie at blitzmegaplex, you will be issued a normal 3D glasses for the movie, which you return at the end of the show. For people who are wearing glasses and don't want to double up their glasses, you can choose to buy the 3D clip-ons, available at the blitzShoppe for 75rb (60rb if you pay by blitzCard).

Please note that the clip-on can only be used in RealD 3D auditoriums only.

Ticket Price
Ticket price varies depending on feature, day, and location. To get pricing info from our website: choose a cinema (under Schedule), and you'll see the pricing info on the right-hand column.

"How long will you play..."
We don't know, because we don't decide ahead of time how long a movie stays on screen. It all depends on the audience's level of interest. We review attendance and adjust the movie's programming accordingly. If you want to be safe, try to watch a Hollywood movie within 2 weeks of its release. It's possible the movie will stay 3-4 weeks total, but the number of shows in the latter weeks will be decreased.
