Doctor Who 3D Screenings Go To Cinemas Worldwide

Doctor Who 3D Screenings Go To Cinemas Worldwide

Not sure if there's a showing near you? There's a map for that.

Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary episode will be shown in cinemas worldwide, including Canada and the US, simultaneously with the show's TV broadcast. What's more, the 75 minute cinema version will be in 3D, for those of you who just can't get enough of special effects wizardry. Tickets will be on sale as of October 25th, 9am; the showing's set for November 23rd.

Not sure if there's a cinema near you that's showing it? Well, there's decent odds; there's a screening finder over here that might answer your question. It's not fully functional yet, and doesn't show much beyond the UK and Europe; more information will be available later.

The only people to be slightly squeezed are those in New Zealand and Australia; there will be 106 cinemas across those two countries showing the special, but not as part of the simultaneous broadcast. Time zones being what they are, if they were to air at the same time as the rest of the world, the show would be at some godawful hour in the morning, which clearly wouldn't do. They get to see it slightly later on the 24th, instead.

In the meantime sit back, relax, put the kettle on. There's just about a month yet to go before the show.

So what, Jersey gets their own screening but apart from the British Isles only German cinemas are participating? Man, screw this.

Just checked my local cinemas, they're all showing it, so I guess I won't be going out that night!

First I was excited, then when I used it I was confused. Then I zoomed out and saw that there seems to be nowhere in the entirety of North America screening it, let alone Ohio. Then I was just sad.

I guess this is one of those rare times I can feel privileged to actually be British, fancy that.

Still not sure if I want to leave my comfy sofa and brave hoards of people just to see this though, as much as I love Doctor Who.

Oh yes, go pay a extra money to sit through a 75 minute explanation of why this next doctor will NOT, in fact, be the last doctor. I'm going to watch it, of course, but not paying extra buckage and NOT IN 3D. Wait, can I bold and underline that? NOT IN 3D. I should add italics for good measure.

NOT IN 3D!!

Awww man everybody getting so hype for the 50 year anniversary. I wish now I'd actually gotten around to making that Companions tribute video I thought of awhile back. Trouble is there's just so much damn footage, even with the fires, I wouldn't know where to start.

Someone tell me when it will be playing in Nova Scotia, could you do that for me please? Thamk you!
