2008 NBA Three-Point Shootout winner Jason Kapona holds his trophy





Continuing the trickle of live 3D events in U.S. movie theaters, Turner Network Television‘s broadcast of the National Basketball Association’s All-Star Saturday Night event on February 14 will be shown live in 3D in up to 160 screens in 80 digitally equipped theaters around the United States.

The NBA All-Star Saturday Night is not the actual all-star game but instead comprises the slam dunk contest, three-point shooting competition, and other such skills exhibitions. This is the first NBA event to be shown in theaters in 3D.—S. T. Karnick
