Wow, this thread died a couple years ago.  Sad, after having so many posts, and going for almost ten years.

Well, I haven't watched (Tron) for a while, so I can't re-rez it for myself... but I just stumbled upon a website where a couple people (Mr. Uncommon Geek, and Mrs. Uncommon Geek) talk about their experience in seeing it on the big screen recently.  So, I'll re-rez the thread for that   They have a 15 minute podcast of his experience at the bottom of the page... and it's clear, they (especially him) definitely like   Even posts a photo he took of the 70mm film itself!  Good idea!  I've never thought to ask the theater to see the reel/film itself when I've watched the 70mm movie a small handful of times in theaters the past fifteen years.

I wonder if he's a member here?  Maybe he's posted it here before.  At any rate, here is the link:

End of line.

I would like a big screen viewing soon.  Wonder where the 70mm print is floating around these days

I'll resurrect this thread. Just watched Tron again last night, through Plex on my Nvidia Shield Android Tv, the digital copy is a 23gb Blu-Ray rip (mkv) with DTS 5.1 audio. I watch it at least every week, gotta be my favorite all time film, it just takes me back like no other.

I watched Tron last night after not seeing it for at least a year. 

I was noticing all the little details and differences between Legacy. 

For instance, in Tron, Flynn didn't need a disc to go back to the real world, in Legacy, though, Sam needs a disc to get back.

Maybe he needed it in order to bring Quorra into the Real World (on the grounds that she's not a human), and safe from Clu's clutches?
(I'm still here by the way, just been a bit busy lately  )

Ping!

..so I took a wrong turn somewhere!  I just watched Tron uninterrupted late last night on my laptop with some really good headphones.  The music and sound effects make up a lot of why the movie is so good.  You can really hear that bass when Sark turns into a giant and walks a few steps!

Did you ever notice that Flynn was never really worried in the computer world?  He laughed at Sark.  He didn't seem to care about what Lori or Tron thought.  That was pretty cool.  I think he knew he couldn't be hurt in that world.

 Ahh...the summer of '82!  Just graduated from high school.  Played a lot of GORF, Bosconian, Asteroids, Defender, and of course Tron with the blue joystick!!!   Good times!
