Sounds painful, but of only limited relevance to the larger issue at hand. You haven't experienced real projection hell until you've sat though a feature projected from a color-faded 16mm print with a malfunctioning arc-lamp lightsource -- which is how I first saw 'The Third Generation' (great film BTW).

The fact your DVD source was a poor transfer, and it was shown on a 1-chip DLP (the color wheel creates the moires) speaks only to those specific technologies, not to any generalizable distinction between all film projection and all digital projection.
