On March 30th and 31st, the Ritz theater will present An Audience of One, a hilarious, yet chilling documentary from Mike Jacobs. It looks into the life of a pentacostal minister and his dreams of making a big budget multi-million dollar film. It’s an amazing look into faith and how far it can drive people, and is worth watching.

anyone know what the dimensions of screen #1 is? The 70mm projector is being used (obviously) for the upcoming run of ‘Interstellar’
