New Projector Comes to Cinema 2

April 7, 2011

This week the Film Forum welcomes an Epson PL Pro G5750 3-chip LCD WUXGA projector to our smaller theater. Coming in at 4500 lumens, it’s much brighter, sharper and with truer colors than our previous projector.

The difference is incredible, noticeable even with the house lights on. Come see for yourself!

This is one step in a series of upgrades that will be coming to both cinemas (thanks to 4Culture and the folks at Bainbridge Island’s Visual Apex). Up next: a new screen and new speakers for the small cinema and a variety of sound system improvements for both cinemas.
