I know that on some takes for just about any movie, it is shot at least 2 ways: 1 - long shot of all in scene, 2 - close-up of people on one side, & 3 - close-up of people on the other side. Makes invisible cutting easier. Also, sometimes, in a theatrical release, we see the whole scene, but then when it's adapted for TV or video, 1/3 of the image is lost due to the difference in aspect ratio. Sometimes to make up for the difference in aspect ratio, the scene is reworked to a close-up of one side & then cut to close-up to another side instead of the original shot of both sides.
I am not sure if this is the exact answer to your question, but it's definately possible.
Live Long & Prosper,
