Someone I know (it's not me - honest!) is arranging a screening of some 3D shorts in a 3D equipped cinema. Nice idea, but already he's sold seats in the front row, which I don't think is a good idea. But I'm not sure. He's also planning on projecting stuff made for a flat screen TV.

I think this could be a problem. Thoughts?

A very bad idea indeed! If these shorts were made for the TV market there will be some big issues when projected on a large screen. Unless the material has been re-converged for the larger screen there is going to be some major problems especially for the poor souls in the front row! This is why Cameron made about 15 versions of Avitar, for different screen sizes.
