I'm going to finish screening "Brothers Grimm" and will report back. Hoping it will get better. At least I have figured out a way to cover the subtitles with a "hard matte." BTW, Roland, I really like your Cinerama website. Too bad you couldn't find a picture of the Uptown's auditorium with the Cinerama screen installed. It was huge! Uptown seated 822 at that time after it was remodeled and the theatre, I believe, was built in the 1920s. I hope no one comes along wanting to tear it down!And opening credits. The US laser disc pans side-to-side some of it, while the Japanese does not have to with the wider aspect ratio.
