I couldn't get tickets to the Mann Chinese (a premiere theater in L.A.) so I made the mistake of going to an AMC multiplex that had one screen showing AOTC in digital.


There are a lot of good things to say for digital presentation - I think this was clearly a large step above what Joe six pack gets to see at the mall in most of America. However it was clearly a step down from pristine 35mm film prints shown in premiere theaters run by professionals. That may be irrelevant though to the business model of D-Cinema since the number of people who get to see 35mm done right are very few.


In any case, back to my point. Unless I am mistaken, I think there was a convergence problem with the projector (AMC Universal Studios Cinema at Citywalk) - when showing white text on a black background I could clearly make out red edges.


I also wondered about the blurriness mentioned in another thread.


And blacks were totally crushed - just a gray mess.


This has me wondering if D-Cinema at the multiplex is inferior to D-Cinema at a premiere theater in the same way that 35mm is inferior when done improperly.


I'll report back after viewing AOTC again at the Chinese.
