Was "movie mode" ever instituted, and how does it work?

    i assume there's some way to turn off the "raise to view" function, and use the crown to slowly illuminate the face?

    Thanks. Odd that tapping the screen turns on a fully-lit display since it's so easy to inadvertently do. I like the crown function.

    You can use the crown to slowly illuminate the face on Series 2 watches. In combination with Theatre Mode, it's exactly what you're talking about.

    You can turn off the "Wake Screen on Wrist Raise" function under General->Wake Screen and use only the "Wake Screen on Crown Up" function, if that is what you desire.

    Dimming the display with the crown function is actually only exclusive to the Series 2. It's a nice feature.

    I agree. I use it all the time.

    Does the Theatre Mode seem incomplete/strange to anyone else? It should be Do Not Disturb instead of Silent, and tapping the screen shouldn't activate the clock face, only button presses or Digital Crown movement.

    To get my desired effect, it seems I need to turn on both Do Not Disturb and Theatre Mode. Can tap to activate clock face even be disabled?

    As I noted earlier, the tap seems incongruous.
