    No - mostly for projecting the films.

    The orders would have been much larger in previous years.

    Lets calculate , there is 3 hour film and 180 minutes and 10000 second.

    If it plays 24 frame per second and frame is 24 mm of film, it makes 6.000.000 mm - 6000 meters- 6 Kilometers

    If sony bought 450 000 000 feet it makes 150 000 000 meters - 150.000 Kilometers and it makes 25.000 movie copies

    Let me be clear , Sony purchased 25.000 3 hours movie film release film

    There is almost 40.000 screens in usa at 6000 theaters.

    25.000 3 hour film release film is only capable to feed half of the screens with a film like jaws.

    If Kodak 35mm film is 100 centimeters , it makes they must find 150 000 000 new customers to compensate the loss only by sony.

    PS

    I learned there are 2200 screens in india and 500 movie theaters , do you think it does save the kodak ?

    PS 2 - There are 13000 movie theaters in China and add 9 everyday. I think if does save the Kodak ,its chinese market but not indian.

    Chinese cinema digitisation is above world standard. And the number of cinemas is even small compared to other major markets.

    Furthermore Kodak has to compete on this market with Agfa, who once stated to intend to be last one standing.

    Money is pouring into China and India at massive rates. The cost of conversion to new technology is not a problem for them and they probably welcome it as it makes them feel even more modern.

    "Nobody" seems to care that electronically projected movies look horrid compared to film. Apparently most people throughout the world have little regard for quality, choosing convenience and cost first every time.

    Small cinema or big cinema , they must make play the movie and older equipment will pour from usa to china , may be this is china reason to open 9 theaters everyday.

    I dont think chinese people would prefer to watch horrible mp4 , they have every kind of LCD DVD players at home and they would not invest to see a Hollywood star on blurred screen. Cinema is quality , they have excellent hong kong cinema experience in that 45 years time and they would not switch to horrible screening . They are not fool. The better the screening quality , more customers will come to films.

    Money is pouring to Europe from USA because cıstomers have more Money to buy goods. Every year more money invested to Europe than invested to China. I think they want to keep Paris streets clean and cafes open for American Soldiers.

    New cinemas will be digital. Most probably digital-only.
