Movie Theaters

Recommended Posts

Why doesnt all movie theaters get rid of the old tape technology and go with DVD,  I think the viewing experience would be alot better with the pic quality especially the HD DVD's I wouldnt mind going the the theater to watch movies if they had HD DVDs playing  :smile2:

I just had to put my thoughts into this and wondering what you all thought about it

...out of the nation's more than 38,000 movie screens, only around 2,200 have digital projectors

I think HD DVDs are of a lower quality then what the theaters have because theaters dont care about portable DVDs.  (just play off a harddrive)

i think it is because films are recorded on a different media to begin with - hd has its highs and its lows - its not the fact that film makers don't have money to invest into expensive cameras, but its many different things, such as lighting, size/portability of equipment and even a personal preference

theres a Theater in Atlanta GA the from what i heard runs off of DVD

it just seems like the quality sucks then again it could be those people that are doing the splicing of the film,  I know i guy thats a magager for one and i seen those huge reals they have and how it all works.  just just looks like old machines that they used back in the stone ages lol

No movie theaters use DVD, HD-DVD, or Blu-Ray, they don't have the resolution. There are theaters now that use digital stacks. The movie is basically kept on a hard drive so it can be moved around easily.

The drive in is cool because the sound comes in on the FM instead of those old metal boxes next to a persons car.

2 movies for 5 bucks dont think thats to bad.

me living in India where some ADLABS franchise has struck deal with IMAX and put up couple of theatres. Its horrible . i mean its just around three times more the size of a normal screen of a theatere and probably showing a higher quality res on the movie . an they call it IMAX  :sad:. i wanna sue them  :tickedoff:
