If you're referring to the 3D Avatar movies, yup all of them uses the same technology across the cinemas. And in case you do not want to watch the 3D version they have normal one too (but no point as part of the essence of this movie is 3D).
But for 3D technology, it has been improving through out the years. For example, some older 3D movies (during the 80s) uses "complementary color anaglyphs", which requires the viewers to wear goggle with different colors on each eyes (usually blue & red). It was then follow by "linear polarized glasses" were polarizer with different phase angle is used on each eyes. The latest technology is of course the "liquid crystal shutter glasses" which is the one used in this movie.
And for those who are thinking of keeping the google for other purpose, no you can't, as GV will make sure you return the glasses at the end of the movie. There is even a fine of $80 if the google is damaged upon return.

the 3D in cinema is overrated...the 'stuffs' are not popping out as much as those in the theme park's.
The linear polarized glasses can be quite al cheapo and made of paper and 2 pieces of plastics with different polarizing angles. It can be a very frustrating experience if you happened to get a "lemon" which the plastics are not installed properly (either flipped over or mixed up between left and right side).
One of the best show I had watch..!
The 3D is fantastic & surreal, really like what they advertised, like looking thru ur eyes
James Cameron remains my favourite director w/ this show & agreed he should only film
it w/ this 3D technology to showcase the vast & gorgeous Navi world & not 15 years ago..
My $14 well spend & looking forward to sequel
Watched it tonight...the normal version...and it was terrific....Lucas's magic...
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
so which 3d theater do you guys suggested? really want to view the 3d specular version.
I didn't like it
granted, I watched the 2d version, but I felt it was very "american"
of course the natives are a bunch of nature loving hippies who use bows and arrows
I think it lacked a certain ability to connect with the viewer, and I never felt surprised during the movie in the same way that District 9 surprised me.
