Worth seeing on the big screen

What can I say? These episodes were two of the best, in a series that was one of the best ever to air on TV. We shelled out $27.50 for two tickets to the showing of a television show we'd already seen, shown in 4:3 and standard definition. The theater was packed. That pretty much says it all.

Well worth the time...horrible sound quality though

This movie had two drawbacks: 1)it was shown on the big screen in 4x3 aspect when it should be 16x9. 2)But the real issue was the sound quality was terrible. It was the caliber of a bad download from a cpu. The two part episode rocks so it is still worth the time....but it could have been better...

The DVD is recorded in HD Digital, the movie was not! The presentation was grainy and dark. Not the best format for this type of event!

The wife and I had a great time. The room was packed with enthusiastic fans. Enjoyed seeing it on the big screen in all its glory and the outtakes were hilarious! All in all a great way to spend an evening when your a Trekie. If you're not a Trekie.... might not be your cup of tea. (a little pricey but what the heck!)

Great episode. Poor presentation.

The Best of Both Worlds is one of the finest episodes of the Next Generation series. Unfortunately Fathom Events did not do it justice. The video quality was acceptable (not HD quality) and the audio left much to be desired. All the audio was in the front of the theatre with little stereophonic effect, no surround and little bass. Next Gen was one of the first TV Series not only broadcast in stereo but also had Dolby Surround. It sounded better on my home sound system when it first aired than it did last night at the theatre. The advertisement for the Blu-Ray release of Next Gen Season 4 had better video and audio quality than the main feature. I'm not sure it was worth $15/ticket to see it on the big screen without the benefit of the quality of the theatre's projector and sound system.
