Depends on the print - also you have to factor it its anamorphic scope or flat 1.85:1 - the negative area of scope is much larger then flat.
The converse is true with digital 2.39:1 scope film's are letter boxed and use fewer pixels then 1.85:1.
At the time when you could see 35mm and 2k digital at the same time. I often felt of your looking at a really good show print 2.39:1 scope prints in 35mm often looked sharper then then 2 k digital. But the 1.85:1 digital films looks looked sharper then then the flat prints.
The quality of prints made a huge difference - I'd watch a film in the west end in London, it was likely a "show print" printed slower since its used for the press and premiers and then the same movie in a local multiplex would have a softer print.
35mm often looked sharper then digital early on - not because its higher resolution but because the blacks were deeper and higher contrast increases perceived sharpness. I think contrast is the bigger issue with digital projection - I did see Attack of the Clones on the early prototype 1.3K DLP projectors. I was shocked how close the resolution was to many 35mm screenings - I was expecting it to be mega soft, but it wasn't. But the contrast and black levels on those projectors was terrible - with very milky blacks and thats what let the side down. More then resolution.
But in general in most cinemas 35mm projection wasn't good. I used to see most films in London and they would be usually look good because you had high end west end cinemas projecting them properly.
But as soon as you went out side the capitol, away from the independant cinemas your typical multiplex cinemas thrashed the films. Pints were poorly made, printed quickly, soft with different colour casts real to real, prints would be dirty, scrached etc...
The late days of 35mm didn't look good. Once cinemas went over to multiplexes with one "projectionist" using automation to run 12-15 screens. The quality dropped off. I used to always try and watch films on opening weekend because after that the scratches would be too distracting.
Perhaps something has been lost on the move to digital and if everything is perfect 35mm can look amazing. But in most cinemas it didn't and in general digital projection has vastly improved the quality of projection for most cinemas
