How much effort (if any) is usually put into converting the Imax auditoriums into a giant screens? Is a new screen put in, or just parts of the old Imax screen covered up (does it become a common width or common height screen?) I'd imagine some parts of the sound system can be left alone such as the speakers and amplifiers, though the Imax top front channel can probably be removed. Since the auditorium doesn't need to be quite as high, is the ceiling lowered at all or just left alone? and of course, new projection equipment...
