www.bigscreenbiz.com forums would be a good start.
Check out the restored single screen Chehalis Theater in Chehalis, Washington. I helped restore the projection booth there. It is a successful first run single screen theater again after it had been converted into a video rental store.
The oasiscinemas.com is now retired and changed to www.farawayentertainment.com
They just took over the Admiral Twin Theater in west Seattle too.
I thought “digital cinema” was supposed to be the salvation of all theater’s problems? It was supposed to magically bring in thousands of customers. :rolleyes:
I used to service this theater. Roughly 200 to 225 each house.
Uh-oh. They went video projection. :(
Closing because it didn’t ‘upgrade’ to the big screen tv experience?
Closing because of crappy Hollywood movies is more like it.
I noticed there’s no pictures of the projection booth after the restoration. Are they showing these classics on 35mm film or have they gone the video route?
Some information is here:
I’d like to see some pictures of the inside of this theater, including projection booth.
This theater is currently being used as a church. The Galaxy 10 plex down the street from this theater is all video projection. I’ve been hearing nothing but complaints about that new theater and how screwed up the video projectors are.
And Regal’s high prices are driving away people too.
This is the same Trans-Lux that gave us Felix the Cat, Speed Racer, and The Mighty Hercules tv cartoons.
This is NOT the first all television theater to open in the Puget Sound area. Galaxy Theaters opened a 10 plex months ago in Gig Harbor (and it’s having equipment problems). Cinetopia has a theater complex in Vancouver that’s been open for almost two years.
Any target opening date yet?
Has the theater finally got a website yet?
Yes, DLP would come under the “video technicians” union of IATSE.
Hmmm….. no movies it appears.
With such cost savings, will the ticket prices go down?
Elma Theater in Elma, Washington is for sale.
Regal usually has their own crew from Knoxville, Tennessee pull out equipment from theaters they close. When they closed the Capital Mall 4 plex here in Olympia a couple of years ago, Regal had American Cinema Equipment pull the equipment out. I was there for that one.
Contact American Cinema Equipment (www.cinequip.com) in Portland, Oregon. They have a huge warehouse of used projection/sound equipment.
So, this will be real (reel) movies or just some videos/dvds?
Sony should be showing The Partridge Family and I Dream of Jeannie on the big TV screen.
Kinda confusing. Does this mean the digital audio division or the television division?
I’m surprised the Indian casinos haven’t done the same thing….yet.
I thought IMAX has always been about the big FILM experience not the big tv experience.
