You may know this but just want to point out current reality in the US.
RealD non XL systems are Z screen systems they are the majority of the
3000? plus RealD screens domestically deployed are only spec'ed at 3.5
to 5 ft .Lamberts thru the RealD glasses.
There are some places running lamps way past when they should and
lower than they should that are at 2-2.5  ft .Lamberts.
As a producer told me about having to work a weekend, a few years
back. "It is what it is."

"If you can get enough light, then the calibration solution would seem
to be to calibrate to deliver the same 16 ft-L D60 white to either eye
when wearing 3D glasses. If you go much dimmer than this, then color
vision gets non-linear, and the colors can look wrong. I think we
ought to increase the light level in cinemas anyway: if we don't then
cinemas are going to start looking dimmer than home computer displays
and projectors in small rooms."
