[BG] Misuse of 3-D digital lens leaves 2-D movies in the dark.

The uniting factor is a fleet of 4K digital projectors made by Sony — or, rather, the 3-D lenses that many theater managers have made a practice of leaving on the projectors when playing a 2-D film. Though the issue is widespread, affecting screenings at AMC, National Amusements, and Regal cinemas, executives at all these major movie theater chains, and at the corporate offices of the projector’s manufacturer, have refused to directly acknowledge or comment on how and why it’s happening.

Hmm interesting. Another reason added to why I stopped going to movie theatres.

This doesn't bother me, The only cinema I go to is the nearest one, its a very small one, so they don't show 3d movies anyway. But it is a bit of a mess up on Sony's part as well. Why cant the lenses be on the outside of the projector?

Also, if the 3d lenses make the picture dark, how come 3d movies aren't overly dark?

Yes, I think he is.
Just going out on a limb here but maybe 2D movies only use one of the 2 polarized lenses?
