Only about 10% of venues are 4k. Agree on all points.Dr Griffin said:You've got to hand it to Dave for looking on the bright side, but his story reminds me of the phrase "contempt for the audience". I'm sure none of this is intentional, but that is what your $30 buys. Sad. While I believe in a fair days pay for a fair days work, the majority of "theaters", in my experience, are barely manned, let alone manned competently. I can't bring myself to fully lay blame though, because, as Dave said, there was no one else there, and like it or not, it's the way things are now. Maybe there was no immediate cleanup because the "staff" didn't expect anyone at the showing. As for the 4K, a lot of theaters are still using 2K systems, and it's plain and simply good enough for most people. The film and its presentation deserves to be seen in high quality though, and maybe the studio should have booked only into 4K capable theaters - I'll get ready to put on my flame suit for that comment, 'cause I know its coming. The closest theater to me is a 16 auditorium multiplex, and is showing the movie tomorrow night at 7PM, and it will be in 2K. The wind is going out of the sails.
10% is lower than I thought. 4 of us will be going tonight, but never been to this theater, so not sure what to expect - it adds to the anticipation.Robert Harris said:Only about 10% of venues are 4k. Agree on all points.

Was this the theater on Delaware Ave.? I lived around the corner from that one when I was a kid in the 70's. Thought Schenectady and Bowtie would be a better venue since it is right next to Proctors and got decent reviews. The theater itself looks good from the outside and has a nice big lobby and everything, but it clearly doesn't get a lot of Sunday night traffic as there weren't many other movie goers there for other movies either. An usher or whatever they're called these days did walk in to check on us twice during the movie alsoMike Frezon said:Wayne: We missed ya!

Adam (as always) nailed it. Outside of a couple of theater anomalies, the presentation was phenomenal. When the opening overture started after the little featurette, it filled the small theater in which we saw MFL. The sound was just stunning. For me, that was the most exciting part of the entire presentation. There were about 25-30 people in our audience.
