I went to see Shrek 2, and I had the option of seeing it in a regular theater or "Shrek 2: Enhanced 35mm Large Screen Presentation". I decided to show up at the theater in time for the Enhanced 35mm Large Screen Presentation. I asked a theater employee about the format before the movie started, and he told me it was basically an IMAX theater without the IMAX projector: a 5-story concave screen. The theater also had a better sound system that their other theaters (36 speakers and 18,000 watts). As a result of this conversation, I was excited for the movie to begin. The screen itself had a 4:3 aspect ratio, but I figured that wasn't going to be an issue, as the room would be dark and they'd just use that portion of the screen needed to project the movie. But it covered the entire screen. I haven't seen the movie in another theater, but there were a few scenes were it looked cropped, and the entire film was a little dark and I thought a little blurry. Did they just pan & scan the original movie and blow up a 35mm print making it dark and blurry? And what's enhanced about that kind of presentation?
