- of the digital sound formats, although any of them should sound pretty good in a decent theater.

SDDS is also the most fragile apparently, however. DTS is sturdy because the sound is on a seperate CD-ROM that runs interlocked with the print (the print has a time code printed on it to keep the CD-ROM in sync), whereas SDDS places the digital information on the very edge of the film outside of the sprocket hole and frame area.


: Okay, quite possibly a pointless question, but here goes:
: The theater where I'm planning to see J&SBSB this weekend is screening the film
: on multiple screens: two with SDDS, and one with DTS.
: Does it make a difference? Does anyone (Vincent?) have any preferences in this
: department?
: Cheers.
