So, this will be real (reel) movies or just some videos/dvds?

Ken right now its just the DVD, unfortunately I don’t have a “Real” reel projector, I believe they were removed, sometime in the 70’s and the projection booth was demolished along with the balcony by a previous owner. So for this summer season, we’ll get by with an LCD projector and a DVD player, but do look forward to the day when 35mm films can again be shown here.
