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.
