Hope their projectionist is on the ball. Last time I was there I saw 3:10 to Yuma in an auditorium that was staggering shows with another film. 3:10 was a 2.35 Scope film and the other film must have been 1.85 flat. When 3:10 started they had the wrong lens in the projector so and the picture was squished. This went on for a few minutes until I made a comment to an employee. They then put in the scope lens but left the 1:85 plate installed so the picture was a narrow strip with the top and bottom cut off. Then they put in the right plate but lens and squished again! This went back and forth for a bit for 10 minutes until they got it right, followed by another couple minutes to get the screen masking right. I almost walked out but really wanted to see Yuma on the big screen and this was the last place it was playing. I emailed the management at the address on their website but never got a response. So, again, I hope the projectionist is on the ball when handling these films of various ages, aspect ratios etc.

I hope I don’t scare anyone from this series. I think any theatre that has the guts to put on a series of classics should receive support. Especially an independent 2nd run house that programs a nice variety of films (Hollywood, Independent and Foreign) like the Culver Plaza does. I just hope theatre management saw my comments so they can make a good effort to have quality control with presentation. I do not know if they ever received or read my email.
