Default Projectors theaters use?

I was curios if anybody knew what kind of projectors theaters use, I imagine it's not the ones you go to your tech shop and pick up for 1000 bucks. So does anybody have any ideas?

Here's some info with pictures: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movie_projector
A lot of theaters are using digital DLP projectors now. Imax theaters use different projectors than the regular theater.

What's up with the links at the moment? Am I right in thinking that the type of projector depends on the size of the film used? Does digital cinema do away with conventional projectors altogether?

Jaymee I would think so, yes. recently I've been reading about DLP projectors which have a DMD (Digital Micro-mirror Device) in them. These are said to be great for wide angle viewing and can be used on any size screen without losing picture quality. I am not sure if this technology has been widely adopted in the cinemas as yet though.

Thanks jvc for the info, I never imagined they were so big compared to home market projectors. Wonder how they do 3D, simplest option would be two projectors I guess.

Many cinemas are also switching to digital projectors so the distributors can send the movies down an encrypted link to the cinema, so prevents the loss of reels in distribution.
