As Cienna crows in Suggests:

Rejoice, residents of Columbia City: The charming yet challenged theater formerly known as Columbia City Cinema has reopened under new management and with the blessing of the Seattle Fire Department! The new Ark Lodge Cinemas celebrates its opening with The Hobbit, which gives you the perfect excuse to revel in another towering triumph of nerd culture while throwing money at a great local business.

Things kick off with tonight's Hobbit screening at 12:01 a.m. For a full schedule of Hobbit screenings at Ark Lodge Cinemas, go here.

The HFR version is 3D-only, so you don't need to worry if seeing it at the Ark Lodge. But no, seating distance probably won't help if you don't like how it looks, unless you sit hundreds of feet away.

I'm hearing troubling initial reports about the film's 48 frames-per-second rate making it difficult to watch - anyone have any recommendations about how to cope with that? Would sitting further away from the screen than I normally do help mitigate this?

Their website is from 'HTML Egg for iPhone and iPad v4.30', apparently. Personally I'm ok with a crappy website while they figure out if the business is sustainable.

I am so excited for this movie theater that I don't even mind that their website is from 1987.
