Digital Screens Open For Attack Of The Clones

Boeing Digital will today announce that a first set of digital-cinema deals have been put into place with exhibitors, and its estimated 23 such ventues will be up and running by the May 16 opening of 'Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", says Variety.

In total, 20th Century Fox expect about 60 digital venues will be shown among 5,000 domestic screens for the "Clones" bow. About 20 recent Technicolor Digital installations also figure in that count as well as more than a dozen previously existing digital screens.

Some number of earlier installations won't be used to show George Lucas' latest space prequel because Lucasfilm execs fear anti-piracy safeguards may be too lax on the older systems.
