True . . . but print film has Eastman Kodak rectangular perforations
which are optimised in shape for repeated runs without wear and tear.
Camera negative stock has Bell & Howell perforations (barrel-shaped)
which are designed for precise fitting to register pins.
Try running camera negative through a projector back and forth a few
times then look at the perforations.

Also, sit close to the screen at your local cinema and watch the
steadiness of the image.  It's not really a fair comparison with the
requirements of telecine transfer.
