    Not to mention that, unless you were in one of the larger markets (I was NOT), your print had water spots on it from not having time to fully dry ...

    I went to the 7pm showtime tonight and it was a VERY good theater experience. I thought the picture quality was great, and though I’ve never been an audiophile I thought the sound was amazing. Wonderfully loud without being ear-splitting AND the dialogue being loud as well. I hate how modern movies often keep the dialogue low to the point that it get drowned out by the music and effects.

    The movie itself gets better and better every time I see it. Growing up it wasn’t my favorite, but always appreciated it’s qualities, but it IS my favorite Trek film these days. And it’s a movie that benefits greatly by the big screen. I was in heaven sitting there during the opening credits with the score playing. I even stayed through the entire end credits just to catch every last second of the music. If I can EVER see it in a theater again I will jump on it!

    I shared your experience at my screening. Your post says it all. It's almost as if I'd written it.

    Was the theatrical version released on DVD? And if so, are the subtitles the 1979 version of the generic Blu-Ray font?

    The theatrical version is only available on widescreen VHS, laserdisc, and Blu-ray — not DVD.

    They do retain the theatrical subtitles on the iTunes version of TMP. I’m not sure if that’s the case on other digital storefronts with that title.

    Does the DVD box set of the original films, released at the same time as the blu-rays, only contain the director's cut?

    I’m glad most here had a better experience than I did. Bummed I didn’t enjoy my presentation more.

    Kind of sorry I missed this - I've never seen TMP on the big screen, I somehow didn't get around to seeing it it's on initial release for some reason.

    As I mentioned in the Downton Abbey thread, my wife and I saw DA last night. It's a good movie, especially if you enjoy the show. I said to my wife, who is a big fan of DA (and of Star Trek), "Seeing the Downton house on the big screen must be a thrill, kind of like when we saw the Enterprise on the big screen for the first time in Star Trek: The Motion Picture."

    She agreed that it was, that the house never looked so good or so beautiful. "Good," I said, "I hope they don't blow it up in the third movie."

    Going off-topic but...

    Does the "Downton" movie seem like it'd make sense to someone who never saw the show?

    Make sense? Sure, but without the substance of who these people are and what they’ve been through. It is almost certainly made for fans of the show. Unlike Trek movies which were always marketed as “you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy it.”
