NO non digital theatres!

I have watched Star Wars twice on the big digital screen (DTS), It was awesome. Yesterday I saw it again on the regular film screen, man was it crappy. I could barely hear what they're saying, or even hear a lightsaber, when compared to a digital screen. In my city they got 2 theatres and play it on 2 screens each. only one screen for each theatre was digital.

I strongly think that this movie should not be allowed to play on those regular screens. It totollay takes out what the movie is all about, visuals and sound is key to this film.

It was so bad I could hear the film projector clicking away. On the digital people could be talking behind you and you can barely hear them. The mood of the film is on a basis of how loud and great the sound is. I was upset walking out of the regular screen, and so so very happy to have watched the film for the first time on a great quality DTS screen.

If you haven't watched the film (though most people here did) Do not watch it on those cheap regular weak screens..

I agree with you, the film was meant to be seen in digital. I've seen it twice now and digital totally blow regular film out of the water...



BOYCOTT CELLULOID/FILM VERSION!!! unless you have no choice then by all means watch the film version, the movie still rocks but... rolling on floor laughing

yes, thank you,

please forgive my bitterness, But it makes me so mad that people do not experience the whole star wars effect where sound is so important. As I said it affects the mood of the movie. I doubt anyone in the regular screen had any feeling at all (Order 66, Padme, etc) during the film.

I interested in seeing the digital version. Is it true that they show Yoda going to Dagobah in that version, or is it the same as the projector version.

The way of the digital is suppose to be cost saving because there is no film being delivered at the theater. So why wasn't the savings past on to the customer?

The normal and digital versions of Episode II were different in minor ways, and I hear it's the same with Episode III. What exactly are the changes to the digital EpIII?

Yeah thats what i was asking earlier, apparently the digital versions dont have to be finished untill just before the movie is released whereas the celluloid versions have to be out a few months before to be copied and cut, so some edits would be made/left in after the celluloid was put out

This has been discussed before. I have seen both...and there are NO DIFFERENCES between DLP and Celluloid...I sent this into TF.N and they posted that as well.

However...Robin, you did not see this in DLP. You saw it with digital sound (DTS = Digital Theatrical Sound)...meaning the audio is on a CD in sync with the film. The picture is projected from celluloid.

Sadly though, you are right. The analog sound mix on the celluoid is terrible. Low levels on music and dialogue...terrible presentation.

no not to young i think you ? just got lost. The savings arent passed on b/c a theater is not going to alter their pricing structure for that one screen, also the film itself is cheaper but the projection equip is much much more expensive. Also let's be honest, the theater industry is the same group that charges 7.50 for .25 worth of popcorn, they are looking for ways to increase their revenue not decrease our cost
