If you were watching "The Grand Budapest Hotel" in a theater last spring and were concerned about the black bars on the top, bottom, or the sides of the screen, you'll be relieved to find out that was intentional. "Each of those aspect ratios was created in order to just visually represent a time period," says cinematographer Robert Yeoman of his latest collaboration with director Wes Anderson, which takes place at various times in the 1930s, 1960s, and 1980s.
