    Well i just went to the movie theater with my girl and saw the movie avatar...it was pretty good im not gonna lie..Its in 3d..BUT the movie theatre didnt give you a pair of 3d glasses when u got the ticket.So everybody in the theater was watching it without full effects.


    How to monetize this?

    Buy 100 or 500 3d Glasses in bulk.I did some research and this site sells them http://www.rainbowsymphonystore.com/index.html

    There 35 cents a piece for 100..and 30 cents a piecec for 500..You might even be able to find a cheaper price just do some googling..

    So all you have to do is buy a bunch of thos..sell them at 2$ a piece or 3 for 5 or however much you feel like selling them for.Then post a ad on craigslist for a gig for selling 3d glasses saying make up to 50$ a hour.All they have to do is go there 30 minutes before the movie starts and leave 30 minutes after the movie begins. Tell them you will let them keep 25% of the profit.Usually there is about 150 people watching the new movie or maybe more,and there is multiple show times.. Have them tell the people that the movie avatar is in 3d but the movie theater isnt giving out the 3d glasses so your trying to earn some money for a new car or something.

    After that its a good 100$ a day or more profit for you..and maybe more if you spread it around to more theaters.Also since your paying the person 25% they will work harder because the more sales they get the more money they make.Dont forget to look at there id and write there name,address and number down just in case they decide to run away with the money :)

    good luck if u decide to do this.. This is a good way to get some money to invest into IM for outsourcing,pvas, etc..

    just something i thot about :D

    Also, just to add summit here:
    If you have your own movie trailer site or full movie downloads, get some business cards printed out with your site details on and make sure everyone buying the glasses gets a card.
    Thats what i call targeted traffic.

    exactly thats what i was thinking..or get personalized stickers and stick them to all of the 3d glasses that say " watch movies for free here www.website.com or just print out 1 page that can fit about 50 of those then cut them out and put them on there with scotch tape

    What country is this? Why wouldn't they give out the 3D glasses and why wouldn't you demand a set when you bought your ticket?

    Unless a cinema is advertising that they are giving away free 3d glasses to watch the movie then they dont have to, its not a given.

    that is shocking to hear that some ghetto movie theaters don't have the 3d glasses. honestly i'm shocked to hear people are okay with watching a 3d movie without 3d glasses,

    sounds retarded but w/e

    I am pretty sure the cinema 3D is polarised meaning red blue glasses won't work

    this is kind of ridiculous. not directed to op though. they give out 3d glasses everywhere, and there are two different versions of the movie. regular and 3d. the only places around me that show in 3d are the imax theatres. there's a great chance they're not airing it in 3d. it will look extremely blurry along the outlines of whats in 3d if you're not wearing the glasses, and will probably give you a headache. epic fail. however you could just hustle people outside of movie theatres and sell them for 5 bucks telling them that they work movies in the theatre.

    I think the OP is confused and saw the regular movie (not in 3D). They are required to give you 3D Glasses and if they didn't, the movie would NOT be able to be watched (you would see a very blurry cross framed image). Sorry but this thread is bogus.

    Kinda reminds me of my glowsticks selling. I buy glowsticks in bulk for dirt cheap and sell them at the fireworks around memorial day and 4th of July. I make a killing.

    I profit 2-4 dollars. Pay out 5cents a glow stick and sell them 1 for 3 and 2 for 5.

    Start selling em an hour before it starts and you will bank. It's crazy.

    You get free glasses from everyplace. This idea would be good, but it isn't based in reality.

    I bet also that the cinema would chase you away! PS: at our cinema they collect the 3D glasses afterwards and clean'em for the next round, huh. Might be better to sell direct to the cinema... Well, Avatar is gone soon anyway.
