The CWRU Film Society installed a new screen and speakers during the summer of 1999 in Strosacker auditorium. This summer, we are installing new projectors in order to provide an even better viewing experience.
The Film Society is replacing their Bauer U2 35/70mm projectors, which have been in use for over 20 years. We are installing Century Model JJ 35/70mm projectors with 4kw Xetron consoles.
The new (they're used, but NEW to us!) projectors will give us a brighter screen image and allow for the Film Society to easily mount digital reader heads to the projectors. (The Bauers were constructed in the 1940s when MONO was King and they hadn't thought of this technology yet.)
In addition, we are hoping to have the time to install a Dolby CP-200 Cinema processor which will give us clearer sound quality and equalization. This will eventually be upgraded to SR and, hopefully, Dolby Digital!!!
