  The only way to watch them. Keep your eyes peeled for film festivals. Or save up for a home projection system. The prices are starting to come down and the technology is vastly improved from the old systems. OUTITW should only be watched large. Afro

Eventually I will have my own home theatre for sure.

The great thing about the projectors, they take up no space, and you can turn your living room wall into a decent size screen without resolution loss. The picture really is amazing.

Of course big screen is always big screen, but I don't think that home theater can ever replace real movie theater.

  I've worked in some houses that have home theaters comparable to any cineplex. Including snack bar. Besides it's one of the few options left for watching the old movies on a large screen.

But possible only when you don't have small house full of furnishings and things... we even cannot view our old slides anymore... every wall is hidden with something.

But what I mean here is the whole movie going experience. You know: going to town, the waiting, eating the snacks, hearing the projector turn on, you're there with friends... Besides, you can't achieve the same kind feeling with pixels as with real film. Even if you have a "real" movie theater at home, it's not the same thing. Too bad it's so hard to see old movies in theater.

  Sounds like you need to get a new house, first, then a projector.

  Obviously, your not American. Theaters in US can be a nightmare. High ticket prices, overpriced snacks, people talking on cel phones, kids yelling, hell, we've even had instances where people have been killed in the theater. To go thru that to see some CGI garbage, no thanks. Foreigners are better behaved in public places, than in this country.

When I think about it, there might be a place to project it... if it wasn't covered by my sister's cinema posters.

I've heard some crazy stuff about the behavior there (grindhouses, Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings as extreme examples). We are very quiet during screenings; of course we laugh, but we are not telling the character what to do or how stupid they are, or booing or clapping. I forgot all that. Now I understand you better  Grin.

  People in foreign countries have stronger historical ties to art, cinema, music, etc. than in the States. Education in those areas is extremely lacking over here. We have a plastic, throw away culture here.

I don't know, I think I won't do it... anyway, if I have the chance to lend Czech OUATITW DVD, we'll show it in school - the teacher settled it with our headmaster yesterday (with the help of my mobile phone calendar), on our graduation farewell party, in pub - as he said "you have to do such things in pub and before the person is totally drunk." So it's set up to 27th and I hope I'll manage it...
