Widescreen Advocate wants to be an invaluable information resource for those who want to be involved in a grassroots education effort to spread the word that widescreen/OAR is the only proper way to watch movies at home.
The heart of WA is our download section. This is where you'll find our own Why Widescreen? and member created resources. The Why Widescreen? campaign includes several different flyers and brochures, some very basic and others more technical. All will explain the advantages of widescreen. These resources can be easily printed out and distributed, so use them to pass on the truth about widescreen.
