    If you haven't heard a Kansas based company bought the Penn Square theater, and announced today that they are turning it into a Digital cineplex with reclining seats and all!!!!

    Looks like we got our wish for EP3.

    And now I don't have to drive to Plano to see ""the Two Towers" :)

    DTB, movies don't have to be shot digitally to be projected digitally. The Phantom Menace, for example, was shown on digital projects. A film movie can be converted for digital projection. ;)

    Yes, this is very exciting news! :D

    You're right PEZman. Movies don't HAVE to be shot digitaly to be projected that way, but digital projection reveals a lot of the flaws of film.

    Oh well, at least I won't have to see those annoying cigarette burns anymore. (thanks FIGHT CLUB!)

    BTW, Speilberg was recently quoted saying he would continue to shoot on film as long as he was making movies.

    Hopefully those films that are converted to digital will come from first-run copies. Imagine the smugness of walking into a film and knowing it will look its best every time you see it.

    It's a good feeling, no?

    And really -- should we settle for less? With the price of movie tickets these days, old ratty film with lots of grain and repair artifacts are not exactly what I'm paying for.

    C'mon Quail Springs AMC 24 -- let's see you ante up in this digital dance. All your soundtracks are digital and flawless, why not your visuals as well!?!
