I see there is one reference to the widescreen museum website (www.widescreenmuseum.com) but it is in the news, weather etc. forum and I think it deserves greater publicity. There is no forum here strictly discussing film technology, but if you are the least interested in the history of the various widescreen film technolologies used over the years, starting with Cinerama, go to this site. It has loads of material. Treat it like a real museum -- don't try to take in too much at once. Check out various pages. I have been very impressed.

Could they make anyone who wants to buy/rent a non-widescreen
DVD, watch this before they are allowed to do so?
How about the boys at BB?
Well, maybe not quite. But I think it would be educational if all rental locations would display a poster showing a scene from a movie in, say, 2.35:1 AR, then the same scene in "fullscreen" mode. Two people on either side of the frame would be good, with the fullscreen showing two noses! I suspect there would still be a good number who didn't care, but maybe if they could see what they are missing ...
