Film or Digital?

Word is that standard movie theaters are converting to digital, that within a year or two, new movies will be available and screened only in that format. This should increase the value of, and need for, repertory movie theaters which show classic movies on film, the way they were meant to be shown. Nothing matches the film experience. Film as a medium is subliminally warmer, clearer, and more colorful than the digital format. “El Cid” shown on film exemplifies this, which is why I still plan on presenting, someday!, this greatest of all movies the way it’s supposed to be viewed.
