What??? Digital projection isn’t installed in all 16 screens??? You mean they actually put in 35MM projectors??? Have mercy!!!!
If the largest auditorium has side masking (a feature that’s actually in new Regal builds), then they should install a century JJ 35/70MM projector & run classics like “Lawrence of Arabia”, “2001”, etc…
Now you know CinemarkFan that would never happen.
Ooops, my bad. I forgot that Regal is not an indie chain. They’re ran by accountants who don’t think showmanship is real.
Pencil pushers as I like to call them.
Sounds a lot like the AMC in Rockaway, which has 35mm projectors for theatrical films and 2k projectors for NCM content with an IMAX Digital projector on the way next year. Plus it’s run by private people.
