Interesting article by Michael Karagosian, Digital Cinema Consultant for the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), published in the September 2002 issue of "In Focus", a publication sent to all NATO members:

The link in the article as an extra space in the pdf link provided. It will probably come up as a 404 error. Remove the %20 from the url and it should then work.

Nothing we haven't been saying in one form or another for years. Nice to see it coming from industry leaders. I understand AMC pulled out of NATO over its position.

Michael K. always seems to put the situation in the right perspective. Maybe that's why the number of D-Cinema screens has not grown much since May 17th, 2002. Even the Studios have "backed off" a bit on the D-Cinema push for releases.

Is the slow approach the better approach?

Hmmm...

I guess that's all still TBD.

Always fun, Ted

Ted says: "Even the Studios have "backed off" a bit on the D-Cinema push for releases."

The Banger Sisters got a full-blown DLP opening in the New York area: AMC Empire, UA Farmingdale, Loews Jersey Gardens, Crown Marquis. In fact, the Loews Jersey Gardens is playing it only in DLP.
