Anyone else think that going to movies is like going to a live concert?

Sort of. Theatre would be closer.

True, but please don't ruin my theory with such comments :D Besides, my theory includes a second paragraph: Watching movies home on DVD is like listening to music on CD.

Not really, since you can't really interact with the film.

That's exactly why I said theatre would be closer.

I would've loved to have seen TGTBTU on the big screen back in '66.

BTW, could my "small theatre" experience also be a European thing? The art film sort of cinema, rarely sold out but always with dedicated people? What are small theatres like in the US?

we've discussed Film Forum in New York here. They play classic movies, documentaries, foreign films, ie. everything that the multiplexes are not playing. I have been there a few times. I guess the crowds are pretty dedicated cineastes, but the screen and sound are shitty.

The cinemas I am most likely to go to are fully digitalised, and even though multiplex it is not, they are good.
Of course, that's the European thing - they're state subsidised/were digitalised thanks to EU funding.

Are there many theaters left in the Czech Republic with the possibility to show 35mm film prints? I take it that the copy of OUATITW you recently saw was on film?

I like using Cyberdyne's new direct-to-cortex system. Very immersive.

I think it was digital... I cannot find any further info of this kind online, whether the cinema in question can show film or not. Inside, it said it had been digitalised, but I did not see whether it was only digitalised.
Frankly, I don't know; the cinema in my hometown was closed down about a year ago, that one was still for film... I thought they were going to re-build it, but it seems it works just as something like a theatre now, and I'm not sure if it's ever going to show films again.

Who knows! ;D

Latest news is the local cinema's going to be digitalised, like many others. The projectors went to a collector and a technical museum, allegedly in a very, very good state, still perfectly operational. I missed out on the last screening on them, because I wasn't at home. >:(
