taz - 2K (2048x1080) is generally considered to be the minimum resolution for theatrical projection (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_cinema
). That said, if you have a good codec, are very very
careful with lighting, shot selection, camera/subject motion and rendering, you can get 1080p (1920x1080) resolution to look decent when projected. Of course, if the audience cares enough about the people and the story on the screen, none of this technical stuff matters
Cheers and good luck with your project,
