I'm almost sure there was a version of Episode I shown in digital theaters. I'll try to search more info about that, but I'm sure I've read it somewhere back then.

Yes. What I was saying is that a digital master of Episode I was created/released back in '99. It was played some months after the original release.

EDIT: Found it.
