    Hello sorry if this sounds like a stupid question

    But you know cinemas - Cineworld , Vue etc

    Is the screen like our normal TVs but just bigger over 100inchs


    Or it a wall with a projector?


    Also is the resolution 1080p or 4K?

    Projector as far as I know. If you turn around and look at the top of the wall you can see the projector light and window lol.

    Projector. Sometimes 2 projectors for one cinema screen

    It's a projector. Cinemas over recent years have been moving from traditional projectors (playing from film reels), to DLP projectors (digital).

    What does this tell me you numpty?

    Silver lenticular (vertically ridged) screens, which are made from a tightly woven fabric, either natural, such as silk, or a synthetic fiber, were excellent for use with low-power projector lamp heads and the monochromatic images that were a staple of early projected images.

    Do you really have nothing better to do?

    4K generally unless the cinema is usiing multiple prejectors, iMax for instance ?

    en.wikipedia.org/wik…ema

    Yeah they are mostly 4K digital projectors, iMAX use two laser projectors.

    Even though they are 4K projectors most content your see is still mastered in 2K, next time you are going to watch a movie look up the Technical Specs on IMDb, master format will likely be 2K.

    It's a huge TV with an equally sized remote.

    It depends on the cinema, just like TVs at home there are multiple generations of technologies out there in the wild.

    Generally giant screens are projectors in cinemas and LED screens outside. LED screens are not like 'LED' TVs, they're more like OLED TVs.

    There have been some demonstrations of LED screens in cinemas and we may start seeing more of it with HDR.

    Cineworld and Vue both use Sony 4K projectors, accept for iMAX, have no idea what you would find in the smaller independent cinemas.

    You're the numpty, you are clearly connected to the internet so search for it instead of asking questions that could easily find the answer for yourself. ****
