I've always taken for granted that a widescreen movie would completely fit the viewing area of a widescreen display. Until I saw a 16:9 television in a pic from a theater page show black bars above and below a movie image from DVD. The screen shot doesn't look like the movie was in any other aspect ratio other than 16:9. So how come the black bars? Have I been operating under a false assumption?
