The "general opinion", as you put it, is decidedly not the informed opinion. Your "most projectionists" are a bunch of wrong people, if they exist.

Will a Blu look as nice as a clean 35mm print? Of course not.

Will it look as nice as a proper digital print? No, although the resolution isn't far off. Digital prints run in theatres are typically 2048x1080. Blu-rays are 1920x1080, but that's still a fair difference, and with Blus you have compression to deal with. A 35gb Blu-ray movie file won't look as good as a 110gb digital print.

Will it look very nice? Yes it will. And it did last night when I ran blu-rays of The Descent and Shaun of the Dead for our Halloween party, using a Panasonic Blu-ray hooked up to a 6000 lumen projector on a 50-foot screen.

Just learned that a drive-in theater near me will have BTTF next weekend. May have to check this out as long as the weather cooperates.

Re: Back To The Future - Back on the Big Screen

We went to see it at the Highlands Ranch theater in Denver and they could never get it to play. After about 15 minutes of tring to get it to work they told us the "file was corrupted", gave us refunds and free passes.

It sucked that we didn't get to see it on the big screen but we got to see The Town for free, I guess that's something.
