This as been on my mind now for many years, and after leaving the cinema, I didn't have much time to talk to anyone else, about the THX experience, so with this thread, maybe there'll be a few hear, if not more than a few, some of you may have attended the same cinema as I have, or the next person beside you? So hears a few basic questions.




What is the best, THX presentations that you have seen and heard over the years from the 35mm to the 70mm Road Show?

Describe in the best detail that you can, on how the effect of the Lucasfilm THX sound system, what did it sound like and feel like to you?

Also the same film that you have seen in the cinema, does it come close, with Home THX sound system, by that I mean from the theatrical THX presentation, to the Home THX presentation?

Or have you made any special modifications, to get it as more exact sounding as possible, with the Home THX sound system.



Films that I have seen projected and presented in 35mm/70mm Dolby Stereo / THX

I'll go into detail about each film as this thread goes along, as well as hearing what you have to say about your experience at the cinema with the best sound around.

Brainstorm has some great usage of low end that will make your eyes vibrate during some of the deeper moments when Mike Brace plugs into some of the brainstorm project files.

You bet I guess you a little young to be, wanting to rave about the 70mm six-track Dolby stereo version of the film in the cinema.
