Pavilion Spotlight: World record HD projector makes you part of the movie
On Monday, visitors to the Washington Pavilion got a look ata film unlike any other in the world. In this week's Pavilion Spotlight, seewhy the Pavilion is giving people a reason to return to the theater.
"It feels like you're in the move," audience member AutumnKaskie said.
On Monday the audience watched a trailer to the feature The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea. Thevibrant colors of coral and large fish caught everyone's eye but for adifferent reason. The Pavilion is showing this feature through a world record4K pixel H-D projector. Normal theaters have 2K pixel lines and the averagetelevision has 1080. However, the major difference is the sea of possibilities.
"You have all facilities of it. You have point of presentation," said JoeEdwards, President of E & E Theater Services Inc. "The theater has multipleuses where before all we had was a film format and one format."
If the Pavilion picks up the projector, the new technologywould allow it to show the latest Hollywood hits, documentaries, and it mighteven let you play video games—the like the snowboard game it previewed Monday.
"I felt like I was on that snowboard flying with them, because it justsurrounded me," Kaskie said. "So it's gonna be a neat thing."
And if we know anything about the film industry it's all about the viewerexperience, which according to Kaskie won't be difficult to capture.
"It just makes the experience that much better," Kaskiesaid.
You can see The Last Reef: Cities Beneaththe Sea starting Tuesday October 22. It will be showing for the next fewmonths. The Washington Pavilion is adding another feature to the list in twoweeks.
