That’s very cool and opens up the opportunities to screen non-traditional works in conjunction with academic departments. Hopefully the owners will make that accessible, although its 100% digital so my guess is its not going to be conducive to experimental filmmaking the way a traditional college screening room may be (I used to teach in media study’s screening room at UB and had my choice of digital formats, 35MM and 16MM – – although not always having the luxury of a projectionist, running back and forth between the projection booth and the classroom was exhausting for showing film prints).
