The Hollywood director launched his new Western in December (15) with an Old-Fashioned Roadshow to show the film in cinemas using an outdated format, 70 mm, which has been replaced by digital projectors in the modern age.

Since the film's release, many fans have taken to Twitter.com to complain that the old projectors had broken down during screenings and ruined their viewing experience.

However, Erik Lornis of the Weinstein Company, the studio behind the film, is adamant the problems are minor and have not been widespread, telling Variety.com, "Those tweets don't give an accurate picture of how well the Roadshow 70mm showings have gone. They represent issues that were rare and far between. And when those select occurrences happened, the projectionists immediately fixed the issue or switched to the (digital) print, so moviegoers all still got to see Quentin's incredible film.

"Part of the risk and thrill of 70mm and celluloid film is honoring its imperfections and the history it brings with it. The box office numbers speak for themselves to how well audiences are responding to this film."
