That's what I thought too, thank god that wasn't the case. Lucas did say
that he wanted only the best screens to show Star Wars, and thankfully
he did not equate THX-certified screens with the best ones.

THX is just a certification program, I know quite a few THX theaters that
actually have horrible presentation due to lack of maintainance, among a
host of other factors.
