Here's a question from the "I have to at least ask" file.

We're set to go 3D (Real D) in a couple of weeks. Our screen has been ordered and the rest of our gear will be arriving soon. The one problem is that the screen will arrive a good week or two later than everything else.

So is it just not possible to use my system until the silver screen is installed? Does the presentation suffer significantly?

I don't really expect to use 3D until I have the proper screen, but I thought I should see if y'all had any thoughts.

You will get zero 3D affect because the matte screen does not retain the polarization. This is why you need a silver screen with the polarized 3D formats (Real D, Master Image, etc.) but not with Dolby.

If you're asking whether you can use the equipment for 2D while you wait for the screen, the answer is Yes. Just keep the RealD stuff in the box until you're ready.

Thanks for the responses. I didn't really expect to be able to do 3D before the screen arrived, but wondered to what extent the quality would be diminished - or if it wouldn't work at all.

That said, what have your experiences been like with 3D? Has it been good for business? I know better than to expect miracles, but I'm excited to be getting it. I think there's only one other second-run theater in the state doing it, so I like the idea of doing something different, offering 3D at a low price, etc.
