I apologize if this question belongs in another forum, I couldn't decide where to put it. With all the posts about OAR and P&S, I wonder how movie theaters handle different aspect ratios. Do they just all use 2.35:1 screens and black out the unused portion of the screen? Do they have different screens for films with different aspect ratios? On another note, one thing I find interesting is that my favorite director, Kubrick, actually didn't prefer widescreen, because he was a photographer. It just goes to show you that a good director doesn't need wide aspect ratios to make a great-looking film.
