Ask Slashdot: Will The Hobbit at 48 fps be better than 24fps?

kodiaktau (2351664) writes "Film makers keep touting increased frame per second rate as improving viewing and cinema experience, however the number of theaters who actually support the equipment that can play the higher rate film. It makes me wonder if this is in the real interest of creating a better experience and art, or if it is a ploy by the media manufacturers to sell more expensive equipment and drive ticket prices up."

Eliminating all motion blur and other such artifacts requires about 40fps in a dark room (theater) or up to 80fps in more brightly-lit surroundings.
