I was very bored today so I created my own little example of widescreen vs. Pan & Scan. It's just a photo that I took and decided to tool around with (I don't have the equiptment to do screen captures of actual movies) 1. As the full (2.35) image would appear projected on a movie theater screen. 2.The image when visual information has been chopped of the sides to fill a (1.33) TV screen which is more square shapped than a rectangle movie theater screen. 3.The widescreen/letterboxed version, contains the whole (2.35) image seen in the above theater screen example. The black bars are not covering anything up, they are just filling in dead space.
