Demetri Kouvalis, owner of the Patio Theater is donning 3-D glasses for:

Prometheus If there is a movie to go see this month, take the time to see Ridley Scott's newest masterpiece, Prometheus. At first I was worried that the movie would befall the typical summer blockbuster nonsense such as Battleship, but I was pleasantly surprised. Scott returns to his epic patented look with gorgeous and haunting visuals, an eerie soundtrack, and top-of-the-line production design and special effects.

It does help that my Hollywood crush, Charlize Theron, plays a stern, by-the-book commander of the ship (named Prometheus). If you get a chance watch the film in 3-D you definitely should. The extra three dollars will be worth your while, as Scott expertly uses depth to illuminate ghostly landscapes and impressive sci-fi models.

You don't have to be an Alien fan to enjoy the movie, but you'll appreciate it all the more.
