Go Digital or Go Dark - Part Two

Produced by: 
KBOO
Program:: 
Air date: 
Thu, 12/26/2013 - 12:00am
The Film Show for December 2013
The deadline is looming for movie theaters across the country to switch over from the century-old technology of 35mm film to emerging digital cinema formats.  With little help from Hollywood studios, the financial burden has fallen especially hard on independent and family-run cinemas.
In Part One of this series, Jenn Chavez spoke with the proprietors of two historic theaters, one commercial and the other non-profit, about how they've been raising the funds to update their equipment.  In this extended version of the second part of the series, S.W. Conser focuses on two Portland institutions, both dedicated not only to the educational value of film screenings and events, but also to keeping traditional 35mm films on their programming schedules.
Nick Bruno and Morgen Ruff give an audio tour of the Whitsell Auditorium's projection booth at the Portland Art Museum, where fifty-year-old film projectors sit side-by-side with multiple digital projection systems, and outline the Northwest Film Center's continuing mission to screen international, archival, and alternative programming.  Then, Portland State University's Matt Ellis offers a hopeful but cautious assessment of the future of Oregon's only student-run movie theater, the 5th Avenue Cinema on the PSU campus.
