Where to see ‘The Hobbit’ in 48 fps

So, everyone’s talking about Peter Jackson’s revolutionary new 48 frames per second format — for the record, Warner Bros. says no, it won’t make you dizzy). Haven’t seen it myself, so can’t yet say . . . but, if you’re thinking about making plans to see “The Hobbit” when it opens next Friday, here’s an early look at what format you’ll see where.
In the Seattle area, you can see “The Hobbit” in 3D HFR (high frame rate, which means the new 48 frames per second format) at Cinerama, Lincoln Square, Lowes Alderwood; further afield, it’s available at the Regal cinemas in Everett, Lakewood and Renton. (Note that the Boeing IMAX theater will screen in 15/70 film projected at 24 fps at the Boeing IMAX Theater, not 48.) At the moment, these are the only theaters I know of that plan to exhibit the new format; but I’ll update this page as I learn more.
