Holy Cow! Was it just the print I was watching or all of them? It looks like someone at the print lab left out the matts or the final render didn't have the matt filter engaged. Either way, someone is getting a royal ace chewing about now. I assume that as it seems impossible to me that they would release the movie with the boom mikes showing.
The projector probably wasn't framed up properly. Oftentimes, the movie will be filmed with the boom outside of the intended projection part of the frame (the negative is 1.37:1, so you have significant headroom with a 1.85 movie). This assumes, however, that the print will be framed up correctly in the theater, since the boom is still recorded onto the negative. Most of the time when you see this is theaters, it's projectionist error.

If you notice this, you should tell the manager that the image needs to be raised.
