Re:Electronic cinema

All this talk of the new 'Star Wars' movie had me wondering about how these
projection systems cope with a 'scope image (2.35:1) ? Are they fixed at
and letterboxed? Does it show 2.35:1 at all or show pan and scanned images?
I would feel very short changed to see 'The Phantom menace' the same way I
view them at home on a 16:9 display. 70 mm on a huge screen or a postage
stamp. What would you prefer?
I hope there are enough discerning cinema fans out there to make enough
fuss if the
big screen experience goes down the pan for the sake of a few bucks.
