Hey folks, is it just me or do commercial cinemas no longer use anamorphic lenses with their digital projector setups? I've noticed at my local odeon that when the projection goes from the 1:85-flat trailers to the 1:2.4-scope film, it no longer appears to have that flick of an anamorphic lens being used. Instead, the projected image gradually zooms out and the ceiling above the screen lights up, and so my only assumption is that they have an automated lens setting that makes the projector zoom out and refocus, to fill the screen as it goes from flat to scope. Is this correct, and if so is this the industry standard for projecting digital scope films? Seems really shoddy. I know digital projection is automated now, and gone (mostly) are the days of projectionists tinkering about with reels and switching lenses, but surely there's still a way to accomodate scope projection properly. Odeon cinemas don't really have dark ceilings to begin with, and so with part of the ceiling lighting up, it sucks away a lot of the perceived contrast. Plus, surely the image would look better if the whole of the lamp was used? Or, is it not an option to use anamorphic lenses now, because of how films are provided to cinemas digitally?
