Of course, there are no black spaces in digital projection, unless
the filmmaker adds them (using a higher framerate and adding black
frames between each frame, akin to how sequential-image 3D is
projected these days). I wonder how the lack of a black space
changes the viewing experience?

Sounds like an experiment for James Bond to conduct in Chicago.
