Prometheus in 4D

I just went to see Prometheus last nigh in 3D. Unfortunately everything was out of focus and so it was more like 4D. I talked to the manager and he told me I had two options:
1. Refund immediately
2. Free voucher at the end of the film
So I am just wondering about how a modern movie theatre operates...

The movie was not yet over (maybe 30 minutes in at that point) but he never implied he would even take a look at the issue. Sure enough it never got less blurry throughout the showing (I opted for #2).
Afterwards my gf and I were speculating. Do they somehow not have projectionists anymore in multi-screen movie theatres? Is everything put on automatically?
Is there some difficulty is focusing a 3d film? So they don't bother if the film is part way?
I also noticed they didn't stand at the exits and hand everyone a voucher, just anyone who asked. So I guess they wouldn't want to stop the projection of the movie in order to fix it, to keep from giving everyone a voucher?
