Cinemas set for digital revolution (14 Jul 2005)
Film critics are divided in their views of how digital film looks on screen, however.

While some contend that it lacks warmth, others say it looks more beautiful.

Paul Brett, a former head of exhibition and distribution at the British Film Institute (BFI), pointed out that a strip of celluloid has black bars dividing each frame.

Digital film does not have these and, as a result, "in layman's terms, it's 15 percent brighter."

"It just pops off the screen at you in a luminescent fashion."
