    Movie Theatre projection technology

    I didn't think much of movie theatres and their technology. Sadly many of them are severely lagging behind the tech and showing their age. However I just went to my local theatre here and they had brand new DLP technology digital projectors.

    I must say being a gamer and all my eyes can pick out the smalles flaws in picture quality. These new projectors are simply amazing. The picture is crystal, and I mean crystal, clear with no fuzz or interference whatsoever. We watched a computer animated movie and saw previews for Shrek 3 and it was almost as if you were watching it on your home computer at extremely high resolution.
    This will force special effects to get better b/c these new projectors will NOT be forgiving on blue screen/green screen errors and flaws.

    Any of you that have not seen this new technology need to go see a movie on one of these things. Amazing........and I'm not amazed by much.

    Our main multiplex cinema recently acquired digital 3D projects for Disney's "Meet the Robinsons 3D" and even though I didn't give much about the movie, I went to see it, just to see how good the 3D technology would actually perform.
    I was absolutely amazed at what was possible with the 3D technology. The immersion is great and the effects they achieve absolutely spectacular. I can't wait for the first movies to be released with that technology, I know that Nightmare before Christmas exists in 3D and that James Cameron's Avatar will be in 3D too.

    I'm off to our local(ish) Apollo this afternoon (Mr. Bean's Holiday or 300), haven't been for ages. Maybe they've stopped using ye olde projector...e. If not, I'm 90% certain that "The Vue" in Swansea does, I mean it's just been built and looks really modern from the outside.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
