The Question: In the final game, will multiple people be allowed in the Theater with you and you guys can watch the saved films together.
Well over at Bungie.net Recon Number 54 started a thread about Saved Films and in the thread he states that it will not be possible:

Response from Recon Number 54:
Great explanation there, however I hope in the full version we will be able to watch films with others in our party at the same time. Sending a film to your friend is great and all, but there is just so much more to offer when everyone is watching the film at the same time. Pausing the film and moving the camera around, it would be like a presentation. I really really really hope we can have multiple people in the lobby watching the film at the same time.
Based on the way the system works, that is just not possible.
There is no way to take the HD video output that is being sent to your television and somehow share that huge amount of data across the Internet real-time.
You could use the Saved Film feature to edit, cut, paste, and select camera angles to build a "finished" Saved Film file that you could then post on your share. Then people would download the small data file and reproduce the film using their console's horsepower to display it on their television.
Drew and crew says Recon is a moron.
What is the deal? Who is right?
