Digital cinemas are astounding and everyone from common folk to AV nerds can see a huge difference. The problem is that the systems are expensive – damn expensive – like a 100k a screen. Through a $1-billion financing deal signed by Universal, Paramount, Disney and Fox, the nation’s top movie-theaters are going to get JPMorgan Securities backing to install these systems on more than 15,000 screens. They say it should take three years to complete the rollout, so chances are you are going to get more digital cinema options near you shortly.
