AFAIK its SD video, delivered through their 'digital theater
distribution system'. Systems I've seen/worked on typically use 1 or
2-way satellite to distribute pre-show content, and cache it on edge
devices at the projector room. Most just use SD output, but I see some
wanting HD output nowadays.  From googling it looks like AMC will
be/have been delivering some movies at this resolution too (uh oh).
