Dimming soon to a theater near you.
I haven’t been to a theater since seeing Avatar a year or so ago, so I have no baseline. Anyone else notice?
While theaters with weak and incorrect bulbs have long been the bane of movie fans, the rise of 3D projectors have added a new wrinkle. Many chain theaters (at least in the Boston area) are leaving on the 3D lenses for 2D movies, which can make it “as much as 85 percent darker than a properly projected film”.
