Digital projection, film projection....
I have 3 kids, aged 12, 14 & 15.
They go to movies from time to time, but they mainly
watch computer screen, playing games. Or TV screen.
Meaning they watched ultra sharp pictures with no depth of field
My point is that when their generation becomes full time consumers
and takes over the world,
they may not be so sensitive about the quality issues that still gives an
edge to film projection
and make it such a special experience for us. A new panel of judges may find
or "good enough" something we still find problematic when we look at it.
I can very well see them comes to dislikes issues like "film mood" .
And the extra sharpness
available from a digital projection might well be what they consider a
"normal" viewing experience.

Yes, but with less resolution. I saw a test of "Clones" shown at NAB on
a Christie DLP projector. I was in the second row. Jaggies galore. Not
a pleasant experience... 1280 x 1024 can't compare to a frame of 35mm.
The new JVC 2K D-ILA was a lot more impressive -- I could walk up to the
screen, and at under a foot, barely see pixels. This is the techology
Kodak is embracing for their digital cinema efforts.
But remember, there's no incentive for the theaters to go digital -- they
won't sell any more popcorn...
