I’ve not been in this auditorium. How large is the screen? Is this to be 35mm projection of classics?

Having just read the article, $5M is a lot for one theater. The auditoriums seating of under 300 remains the same, so I’m guessing the screen can’t be larger then say 50 ft. It supposedly has 3D capability.
