Default Ghosting/Double images....Is this also an issue at the theater?

for example Piranha had ghosting in the theater. So does the 3D blu ray. But it is not severe at all it is only some places.
Almost every title i own have minimal ghosting does the 3D movies also have that in the theater

I also seen the reviews and it seems like the reviewers also experience ghosting on almost all titles.

One title in particular really has severe ghosting it is almost unwatchable in 3D because of it. It is My Bloody Valentine. It is so bad. Did this movie also have that much in theater like there is on the 3D blu ray

I haven't seen Piranha, but I've seen almost every other 3D theatrical release and there has been very little crosstalk, the only time I've noticed it was in Kung Fu Panda 2 near the beginning of the movie. If I recall it was a scene with flaming torches at night and the torch light had some crosstalk going on. But it was very minor, and that's the only time I've ever noticed it at the theater.

Default "Ghosting" Or Double image. Is this also an issue at the theater as much?

Ghosting i.e. crosstalk/double image is a filtering display limitation. In the theater and on Blu-ray 3D, the 3D video source usually is flawless in that both the left and right image data will have no crosstalk contamination. Both left and right images usually contain separate pristine 2D images.

Ghosting in the theater and on many (not all) home displays where polarized glasses or active shutter glasses are used, the "ghosting" will come from the limitations of the filter source that blocks the light of the intended image not to be seen. Usually only extreme areas in the picture where brightly lit sections on very dark or black backgrounds will defeat the intended result.

Systems that use a designated display for independent separated viewing for the left and right eye definitely verify that ghosting is usually not in the source. There are exceptions from filming techniques and equipment that can contaminate the image source or experimental conversion processes.

Its weird there is more ghosting on 3D blu ray. How come they can't fix it so there would be no ghosting at all.

Yeah, I've noticed at least a little ghosting on a lot of the 3d blus I have. Even games like Uncharted 3 and the demo for Motorstorm Apocalypse. I definitely recommend Stardust HD on the ps3. The 3d in that game is flawless and absolutely adds to the experience. I can't even play that game in 2d anymore.

3D blu-ray's are not the problem when ghosting is concerned.

Ghosting is caused by the limitations of the current 3D display's, the current capability of the filter devices and 3D Film/video sources with ghosting present.
Improvements and upgrades to displays and filters are being made all the time.

In the future you will be able to see a pristine 3D movie if authored from a pristine 3D film/video source, at home, using todays 3D blu-rays, and the 3D won't create any ghosting that isn't inherently already on the discs.
