Pretty sure mine was 4K. As I said it looked amazing.
I doubt the person you would speak to at most theaters knows the difference between 2K and 4K. Their most likely response is: "We play the file that is sent to us by Fathom; we have no control over the quality."
Based on your posts, I suspect that yours was 4K, too.
Exactly. I'm betting on the city venues as being 4K across the boards; but this is based on gut and not research.
Call the theater and see if they have a projectionist.
Good advice, but we must be discerning when listening to their reply.
After all, a candy counter person could consider themselves as being one, simply for pressing a button.
This is the stuff of suburbs.
That was my experience the last time I made a complaint about presentation at the theater. They told me to wait while they got the "projectionist," then proceeded to grab some high school girl working further down the counter who claimed she was the "projectionist" and had projected the film as intended by the studio.
You can place your complete trust in this individual, just as long as her name-tag denoted her as the "Asst. Manager", as well.
My local AMC has a dedicated professional projectionist.
I went back to The Sound of Music again tonight. This time I sat much closer to the screen than I did on Sunday. The row right in front of the handicapped seats before the start of the stadium seating. The theater I saw it at was most certainly showing the 4k version.
Saw this tonight. It didn't look 4k to me. The picture was good but not as sharp as the last time I saw it when the blu-ray was shown.
I sat in the same location as Wayne did. Definitely 4K on a large screen, so large that the image did not fill the screen horizontally, but did vertically (2.2 ratio?). I hadn't seen it on a screen (that I recall) since 1965. I really don't love the film, and this time I concentrated on the wonderful performance from Eleanor Parker. She, not Peggy Wood, deserved the Supporting Actress performance. Still, it was good to see it once again on the big screen. I don't have to see it again. I did have a neighbor who decided she was in the sing-a-long version. I quickly confronted her TWICE and then went to her face and told her loudly that I would have her ejected. She apologized and kept quiet but gesticulated Maria's part throughout the film. After the show, the patrons thanked me.
Eleanor Parker’s performance also was the revelation for me seeing this for the first time on the big screen.
She was amazing and I agree she should have been nominated.
Anyone know how Rebel Without a Cause is showing as PG-13 on Fandango? That rating didn't exist for about 30 years after the movie was released.
If it's actually rated and not just something Fandango decided to say, Warners must have recently submitted it to the MPAA.
I looked it up on imdb and they say it was re-rated in 2005 to pg-13. Also on the official film ratings site.
Rebel Without A Cause (2005)
Rated PG-13 for some violence and thematic elements.

Re-Issue from 1955

Would be fun to relive seeing Alien on a big screen. I saw it during it's original run at a HUGE old school theater (with smoking rooms on each side of the theater!) in Denver.. Awesome experience seeing it there.
Anyone go to see White Christmas tonight? Was great to finally see it on the big screen.
Not sure how authentic the aspect ratio was since it appeared like it was 16:9, but it didn't harm the experience any. And there's a short portion early in the movie that looked pretty soft, which has me curious now if the Blu-Ray is the same since I never noticed it.
I want to rewatch it on Blu-Ray, but time for bed.
