5 Samsung-LED-Cinema

We have a look at the future of cinema and watch a movie on the one and only LED screen in Germany

Cinema Traumpalast in Esslingen
We watch Men in Black International
Samsung Onyx is quite impressing. The screen is super bright and the picture is very crisp. Even 3D with shutter glasses is great. And black is black. No black bars visible on top and at the bottom of the screen. This kind of future is very welcome.
