    AMC Theaters lately have been screening classic films, choosing one classic a week, and Spartacus is up on May 18th.

    Here's what I'm wondering: it's obviously going to be digital projection. But what will the source of that be? The current Blu-ray that's not exactly beloved around here? A DCP copy made from the same source as the BD that looks equally bad? A less overprocessed DCP?

    Any ideas? While I'm all for seeing it on the big screen, I've already been fortunate enough to see the 70mm restoration, so I don't desperately need to go out and see this. If the source is going to be the same as the Blu-ray and look just as bad, I can't imagine going. On the other hand, if it was significantly better, then it would be hard to stay away.

    I'd also love to know what to "expect" from this upcoming theatrical presentation. I'll probably end up going, as this is one movie I have not seen (but have always wanted to). Thanks in advance for any further discussion :)
