Yes, there are new digital projectors being installed. 8 on the choral stairs and 3 up in the booth. However, we are still running film for the 3-D. There is a lot of new content for the show this year.

Yes they are biligual. Also, they will be running 3-D soon. They are starting major upgrades to the equipment next week.

I may be wrong but I think they are contracted for a few years from what I remember. Email me when you get a chance.

Vito, there definitely are changes to the Christmas show this year. The 3-D opening will remain the same though. The change to the size of the screen is in fact due to the mods made to the proscenium.

Sorry Vito. I’ve been to busy to reply. From what I have heard, some of the mods they have made to the proscenium will not be removed for the Christmas show. The picture is in fact being made smaller by about 10%.

I’m not so sure they will all be removed. We are already reconfiguring the Christmas Show 3-D for a smaller picture because of some of the changes.

Between 3600 and 3900 people showed up. Apparently the reviews were bad well before the screening. I liked it although it ended too quickly. Running time is only 88 minutes.

They didn’t do anything to the stage. The curtain was used. We got our start cue late so there was a lot of waiting in the dark until we hit the screen. Other than that, it ran perfectly. A good part of this movie had very dark scenes, but it looked great on the screen.

We finished the run through about 2 hours ago. Interesting movie. I never listen to critics though. Looked great on the big screen. Sounded great too. Film rules.

I don’t think a mutt is more or less reliable. You do have a spare deck though with a platter in case there is a problem. Projectors 2 and 3 are for 3-D. Projector 4 is 35/70 but can’t handle higher than a 5000Watt lamp. Projectors 1 and 5 are 35MM only. All 5 projectors are still active and we had run them this year during the christmas show. The film in March will be run on projector 4. All of the changeover wiring has been ripped out.

Vito….We don’t want to use the 70MM projectors for reel to reel because we don’t want to disturb them for the Christmas 3-D. The platter is fine. The problem with platters is the “film threaders” at theaters today don’t know the proper way to use and maintain them. They weren’t even taught to thread properly. I have no problem using platters. I’m just glad we’re running film again here. The best part is there is no digital back up.

It’s going to run off a platter, but at least it’s film.

As I said before, there will be a movie premiere on March 5th. The big question was whether it would be film or digital. The word just came in that it will be film (as it should be). There will be NO digital back up. It is a Kevin Smith film. Sorry I couldn’t tell you guys the name earlier. I thought I should wait until it was 100%.

Film at Radio City???? Unheard of!!!!! There is a rumor going around about a possible film here…..Actually it’s not a rumor. March 5th 2011 is the date. Still debating whether it will be film or digital. Not much of a debate here. More than most likely it will be film and that’s a fact.

Looks like age has finally caught up with the organs. The organs have been inoperable since Sunday. They have been working on them, but may not have them for at least the next few days, if not more. I can’t imagine it being easy to get parts for them.

We bought a new set of polarizing gels for the 3-D. Both port windows have them. They were a better quality than the old ones. They seem to work better at blocking the light. The lens on the second machine had focus issues last year. We took it apart and replaced some of the elements and that fixed the problem. We also tried a different company for the 7000Watt lamps this year. These lamps are supposed to work better with the extreme angle of the projectors. So far they definitely do.

Vito. Email already came out that all optional shows except one, were cancelled. They won’t be adding them in December. 70MM 3-D is working great. We got some new gels and we fixed the focus on the second projector.

No changes at all from the last 2 years. Tickets sales must be slow. All optional shows were cancelled already. Most of the late night Friday and Saturday shows are out.

It’s a shame “The Two Towers” wasn’t film.
