I was wondering when this bit of news was going to be posted. I remember the old Carmichael Auditorium when I was a kid because the 35mm print of the 1973 film: “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” upped and burned near the ending of the movie. On a technical side the theater is equipped with Kinoton FP38E Premiere 16/35 projectors and the Barco DP2K-23B DCinema projector (with 3D playback). Sound wise the system can also decode and present film in 7.1 sound
