    TV GUIDE reports it as letterboxed, with a runtime of 2 hrs 15 minutes. I'll be taping (or I should say, retaping, as I missed the last five minutes or so last time it was on).

    I'll have my VCR set, just in case. It's on the same time as the Premiere of ENTERPRISE. [​IMG]

    Good news--the 2am EST airing on Thu morning 9/27 is skedded as letterboxed in the GUIDE; 8pm Wed night is pan/scan. So tape away in the wee hours and enjoy ENTERPRISE on its first run.

    The Widescreen Movie Center has a "Letterboxed Movies on TV" schedule (www.cheezmo.com/lbx.html) that is close to infallible, except when the stations themselves err or make substitutions. Worth bookmarking (and, yes, an LTXed SHOUT AT THE DEVIL is there for 9/27).

    Generally speaking, AMC runs theie movies in primetime in reformatted for 4x3 and then rerun the feature late night (or early morning) in letterbox.
    Their website used to indicate on the schedule which version was going to be aired, but have since removed that information.
