Okay, I'm planning on possibly seeing LOTR:FOTR for a sixth and final time tomorrow, but since it's only playing at cheap second-run theaters in my area I need to ask: Do pretty much all theaters these days feature some sort of surround sound, or should I call the theater to make sure? I'm not expecting Senator-quality sound, but if a theater doesn't have surround sound, it doesn't get my business.

I'd definitely call. Lots of theaters out there with no surround sound.

Andrew: Maybe this is off-topic, but are you saying that you must have surround sound in every case? Or just with those films that have surround sound in the first place? I've had thoroughly enjoyable experiences watching 35mm versions of my favorite film in mono--back in the early '70s, of course. Just curious. JB

I've decided that it might be best not to tarnish my memories of my final two viewings at the Senator with some inferior-quality presentation. To answer Jack's question, if a film is made with surround sound, I have to hear it that way if it's at all possible. I don't mind updates of old soundtracks, but I have no problem whatsoever listening to films like Streetcar Named Desire orCasablanca in their original mono sound.
