Playing from a computer in quicktime player in HD using h.264 has become
pretty standard for non-tape HD exhibition in my circles. DVD Studio Pro
doesn't do Blu-Ray yet to my knowledge though I'm sure you could hack it
with some third party stuff to do so, but I think at this point a venue is
more likely to have a mac than a blu-ray player.
If you want to play it FROM Final Cut Pro instead of quicktime, you pretty
much have to render to prores422 to avoid the horrible recompression
artifacts of HDV, which means 8+ times the disk space and the need for a
fast computer and drive. It will look great though.

You mention a gallery - I'd find out what they have and go from there.
