Maybe I don't share everyone's memories of the golden age of flying,  
but I remember the days of 16mm projectors in the ceiling space of  
747s as truly dreadful. The good news was when the cassette jammed  
and they couldn't show the movie. The bad news was if they did: it  
was fuzzy, washed out, and usually projected somewhere near the  
screen rather than on it.

But as someone has already said, the only purpose of showing movies  
on a plane is to send you to sleep. That is why international  
regulations mandate that every flight over four hours has to show at  
least one movie featuring Meg Ryan
