Cool Stuff: Hal 9000 Magnet

Sometimes it’s the simple things that make us smile. I found this HAL 9000 refrigerator magnet which is being sold on eBay. Badge Bytch is selling it for £3.50, which translates to about $7 American, plus who knows how much shipping. And who wouldn’t want to a Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic Computer? Now if only it had a motion activated sound-clip which would greet you with random sound-bytes from the film like “I’m Afraid I Can’t Let You Do That, Dave.”

Cool Stuff: Iron Man Spotted at the Arclight

Iron Man at the Arclight

Thursday we posted about the life-sized Incredible Hulk Statues that Universal sent to multiplexes nationwide. And of course, as always, The Arclight in Hollywood has something cooler. 52878 has posted photos of the Iron Man Mark III Suit which is on display now at the Arclight. Did I mention that The Arclight is probably the coolest theater outside of The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas?

Cool Stuff: DIY Bronze Boba Fett Pez Dispenser

boba-fett.jpg

Flickr user Switthoft created this very alien, bronze Boba Fett Pez Dispenser by slaughtering a few Pez Simbas from The Lion King. The Circle of Life says “why not?”In the process, a “battle scar” was implemented, showing Pez guts. Let’s hope George Lucas doesn’t find out his address. More hot Pez action after the jump! (Safe for work.)

Cool Stuff: The Cinedom in Cologne, Germany

Cinedom

Lately on /Film we’ve profiled a couple movie theaters as part of our Cool Stuff feature: Tha Alamo Drafthouse, the coolest movie theater EVER, and the AMC Pacific Place Cinema, the coolest looking movie theater in Hong Kong. /Film Reader Xavier Maury told us to take a look at the Cinedom in Cologne, Germany: “I lived there 7 years and it was a pleasure going there.”

The Cinedom is Cologne’s largest movie center, offering more than 2,300 seats. The multiplex houses 14 theaters, each ranging from 100 to 705 seats, two of which can play 70mm prints. All of the theaters and seats are covered completely in black. The largest hall features a 75 foot wide screen. Each theater is Lucas THX certified, Dolby Surround in all halls, in addition to DTS in halls 4 and 9.

Cinedom

From what I can tell, the Cinedom doesn’t offer any special added features or special events (outside of the occasional movie premiere). Ticket prices range from $6 for Children up to 11-years-old, $8 on Cinema day (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), and $13.50 on weekends.

Cinedom

The theater is divided in to three floors, all of which have wheelchair access and a large glass elevator. The lobby features four restaurants: Pizza Hut, Ocean Drive, La Gelateria (Ice Cream fresh daily and Italian coffee specialties) and Casablanca Bar & Restaurant. What makes the Cinedom so cool is the architecture, which can be seen in the photos below. Or you can take a virtual 3D Quicktime-VR tour of the Cinedom.
