Giles, when you say horizontal masking do you mean that the masking moves horizontally (i.e. side masking) or that the masking itself is horizontal relative to the screen and moves vertically (top masking)? I live outside of Richmond but love and envy the D.C. film scene, and am thinking of checking out the Angelika this weekend. But I hate screens with top masking and avoid them at all cost.

the 3D systems are Dolby systems – the glasses are thicker and heavier than what I am accustomed to, but the image and 3D pop of ‘Dial M for Murder’ was really really good.

here’s a photo of the complex, not quite sure what the developers are doing in the foreground area though.

here are some details about the Film Center:

All screens have Barco DLP digital projectors, auditorium #2 can playback in 4K resolution. Likewise all the screens feature horizontal masking.

All the auditorium’s sound systems can playback in digital 7.1 surround sound. Screen 2 is the only auditorium to feature ceiling ‘voice of god’ speakers.

Screens 2, 3 and 4 can present movies in 35mm.

Auditoriums 1 and 2 are the complexes largest with the seating up to 299.

3D features will be presented on screens 3 and 7.
