No premieres in the near future. Vito, they may be bringing in more digital projectors for the spring show. It looks like they will not be using film now for the spring show. This is what we heard yesterday from someone. Info does not travel well to us hear so that may still change. The trailer for the spring show is 90 seconds and being shown on the 3D wall. It looks amazing on the wall…….if you like the look of content on a cinderblock wall with cold colors……..makes no sense at all.

Didn’t see any during spring show rehearsals. “Snow” was only thing added for Christmas Show.

That was a great response David. Also, this just in……..we will be running a “trailer” at the beginning of every show for the spring show……

“Snow” is putting me to sleep. Some spring show testing going on as well.

The “shine” number is gone. Snow scene was added. There will be large snowflake “balls” flying around the house…(this is a lawsuit waiting to happen)…..Some new content added to the digital projectors. 3D film staying the same and on film (as it should be).

Projector 5 will not be going back into place. We still have 4 other good ones so I think we’re okay. They do show the booth on the tours but they stay outside the doorway of the booth. It’s funny hearing some of the tour guide talk about the booth and projection. Most of them are very accurate, but some of them have no idea what they’re talking about.

As far as future projection goes, there are no upcoming movies. We did however do some extensive film testing for the upcoming “spring” show. There is a very good chance that we will be using film for it. Digital projectors will also be used.

Hey Vito. Don’t worry about the old projectors. We don’t cover them anymore. In fact, we started fixing up the 2 that haven’t been used for a long time. Looks like we may be using them soon……..

It’s funny that you mention that. I don’t know the answer but I was going through the film vault a few weeks ago and found that snipe along with many others.

I guess it doesn’t look better to the people that tested film and digital last year. According to them, the film 3D looked better on the huge screen. Digital couldn’t even fill it. As far as the 2D, there was no clear winner between the 2. We still run film for the Christmas show too.

The film projectors may be used some more in the upcoming future. We will be testing some film elements in a few weeks.

I wish it was easier to get someone up here. It’s hard enough getting in myself sometimes. I do the same thing when I go to theaters. Always looking to the booth.

We get 2 new prints, at the beginning of the run, when they change any of the sponsors. The current print started at the beginning of last years show. We just started using the backup print a few days ago.

Interestingly, very few issues so far this year. They seem to have fixed the bus (finally) and video wall. Thank goodness the film is still in………

To hide the speakers and for projected images for the show.

It was not up for cirque. Maybe it will stay up for the upcoming run though. Not sure. The LED wall for the video game has had problems so far but not with the content. Its been mostly mechanical. Effect is good. More depth of field than things coming out at you. The film is better for that.

Cant put speakers behind the arch. No sound would get through. The fake arch is made of acoustically transparent material.

It’s temporary. It was put in place for two reasons……..for the candy cane effect during the show and to hide the speaker clusters.

Yes those tubes are for the exhausting of the digital projectors. We measured the temperature of the exhaust coming out of these at 124 degrees. The 6" ducts on top of the film projectors did not pull out enough. Instead, we tapped off the room exhaust vents and put 14" ducts in place for the primary exhaust. We used the existing 6" ducts for the secondary exhaust. With the digital projectors on, and film projectors off, it got up to around 84 degrees in the booth. Now it stays below 75.

The reason #4 has a different lamphouse is because the consoles for #2 & #3 were brought in strictly for 70MM and the 3-D, not for regular 35MM prints. They upgraded #4 for 35MM film.
