The Marquee Wakefield 12 is showing TNT's coverage of NBA All-Star Saturday Night in 3-D, starting at 8 p.m. Saturday, with tickets priced at $20 apiece. Last month, the Raleigh theater showed Florida's BCS title game victory over Oklahoma in 3-D — the first major sporting event available to the public in 3-D — but the NBA show might be able to make better use of 3-D by allowing the cameras closer to the action. The events include the slam dunk contest, the skills challenge and the 3-point shootout.
The 3D showing of college football's BCS title game last night at the Marquee Wakefield 12 in Raleigh — one of about 80 theaters nationwide to offer it — had almost no technical glitches and offered an incredibly crisp view. But those moments of a ball or player jumping out of the screen at the audience? Not too many. Here's what they got right and, well, not so right.
