That would be the opposite of the X-curve I'm referring to. Theaters exhibit high-end rolloff and reverberation due to a number of environmental factors which don't exist in smaller mixing environments. Therefore, what you hear when mixing in a smaller room will be brighter, and less reverberant, than what you'd hear in the theater, so compensations are made in the mix to emulate the theater.

Or maybe they're not, but that's precisely my question. For those not mixing in big stages, how do you deal with translation to large movie theaters?
