Attendees at CineEurope 2012 — a trade show for theatre owners and operators — have heard that Peter Jackson’s decision to shoot The Hobbit using 48 frames per second rather than the current 24fps (or 25 in some parts of Europe) will cost them more.

However, it seems that exhibitors have largely signaled that they still want to show the hotly anticipated movie in the higher, more-expensive framerate.
