Just wondering if anyone actually considered the venue before buying their tix.

I saw it at the Fox in Westwood. Big old theater where they have a lot of premiers. Located 1/2 block south of UCLA campus. I wanted to see it with a young audience. I'm glad I did.

How about the rest of you guys out there?

That's where I saw it, out of nostalgia mainly -- I saw so many big movies there when I was a student at UCLA. Sat in some long lines at the Village (Fox) and National on opening day for so many movies.

I would like to see it in the Dome now. A shame it's not playing at Graumann's.

I'm kinda thinking I'll try and see it on 2K DLP. That way, I can have not just a cranky biased opinion here, but an INFORMED cranky biased opinion :D

(Plus, I'll try and work my views on Canadian financing, Senate fillibusters and Revlon into my post somehow).

I saw Phantom Menace both ways, as I was curious, not having seen an "over 1K" DLP.

I saw the last one on film and remarked it looked less sharp than the S16 blown up "Monsoon Wedding" I'd seen in the same theater a month before.

But this time I think I'll go the whole 9 yards (compressed to 2.6 yards no doubt B)

I'm also considering comparing it unfavorably to Kodachrome.
