One of several questions for D-Cinema is content. Now that the rush for Episode II is over, it seems that 35mm film versions have conveniently moved to the medium and smaller houses to continue money-making.

How about your DLP projectors? Still in use? What's being shown on them? And is the public as "digitally aware" for your new presentation as they were for EPII?

Star Wars. 8 weeks. That sux. It's a waste of our largest house. I wish we had gotten Windtalkers. Wasn't it released in DLP?

Hi Pat!

Our DLP (Pacific's Grove 14) is still running Star Wars and I think it will be for quite a while longer... don't know exactly what kind of deal we have. However it still is doing great business... much better than our other two 35mm screens, which is ironic because we have an excellent showprint in one of them. We should be advertising that!

Perception doesn't always agree with reality.
