An “Avatar” note: Not all theaters 3-D

For those of you busily buying advance tickets to James Cameron’s “Avatar,” opening this weekend, here’s something to be aware of: I was informed today by a publicist that the film will be screening in 3-D in most theaters, but not all. Cinerama, she specified, will be in 2-D, as will a few other local theaters not yet equipped for digital 3-D. Ticket-buying websites like Movietickets.com and Fandango.com are clear about “Avatar” vs. “Avatar in Real D 3D,” but the Cinerama site makes no mention of it being 2-D. If this matters to you — and it probably does, as the 3-D is much of the buzz around “Avatar” — buy your ticket with care.
