Film aspect ratios

Filed under:General — eric @ 11:25 am

I discussed film aspect ratios with my mom last night. She’s seen The Lord of the Rings at several theaters now, and has noticed that some screens were showing the movie “wider” than others — that details were being dropped on the left and right on those screens not as wide. I hadn’t heard of the movie being released with differing prints, so I suggested she was the victim of an incompetent projectionist. I still don’t know, but Roger Ebert wrote an excellect article on the problem last fall.
