Movie Screens, Small to Big to Small Again - Digital Domain

Movie Screens, Small to Big to Small Again - Digital Domain | salle de cinéma | Scoop.it
Professor Belton points out that the first projected images in theaters were not all that large. In a movie palace that might hold 5,000 people, an early screen might have been only 15 feet wide. But the images became larger around the time that sound arrived in the 1930s.

“Because of the system updates, the Joy Theater has now been transformed from a movie theater to a fully equipped live venue. “When the theater was built in 1947, movies were the big game in entertainment,” commented Sandie McNamara, director of marketing for the Joy Theater. “As part of the planning process, consumer wants and needs were taken into account.” McNamara continued, “Entertainment today means so many things — live music, comedy, movies, presentations, dinner — there is a tremendous amount of competition.”

"After much study over the past three months, the FJI Class of 2011 is headed for the final stretch. Our eighth annual survey of new cinemas concludes by taking a close look at and listening intently to the two elements that define the theatrical experience most: bigger screens and better sound. As in previous entries to the series, the featured selection of theatres and initiatives is exemplary, and cannot be comprehensive."

"But take a moment to peer beyond those red light specials. Obscured in this maze of copulation stands one of Bangkok's most resplendent erstwhile entertainment venues - the Oscar Theater. (...) And before sex moved in, God held the lease. For five holy years after its closure, the Church of Hope of Bangkok held sermons in this once mighty temple."

A cinematic leap for the smartphone

"Phones in the theater were once regarded as a nuisance, or worse — the embodiment of a mobile revolution that was dragging consumers away from the multiplex. These days, theaters welcome them. Along with better seats, 3-D projectors and upscale snacks, smartphones, iPads and other tablets are changing the century-old exhibition business, presenting opportunity for growth in an industry trying to stay relevant in the digital age."

"At a time when companies in every major industry in the world ship vast amounts of highly sensitive data via the Internet, the major studios ship their precious cargo on hard drives?

What makes this even more insane (and yes insane is the right word) is that these hard drives require a very expensive digital projector and a cumbersome key system to unlock the movie. At a time where digital innovation is driving costs down in data storage, memory and processing speed all over the world, the movie studios have found a way to keep costs up and suppress digital innovation."
