Barco projector breathes new life into iconic Hollywood theater

1분 읽기

When the beloved film program of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) was threatened with cancellation in 2009, a groundswell of support arose from the film community, including Hollywood luminaries like Clint Eastwood. The film program was rejuvenated in 2011 through the collaboration with the non-profit Film Independent, led by Elvis Mitchell. In a display of generosity and Barco’s commitment to the motion picture industry, Barco stepped in with the gift of a state-of-the art digital cinema projector to bring the 46-year-old Bing Theater into the twenty-first century.  Photo copyright 2012 Museum Associates/LACMA.

Barco’s donation is enabling LACMA to offer a more modernized movie series and evolve its cinema offerings to begin building a higher profile, appealing to a younger audience while still satisfying the entertainment tastes of its loyal patrons.  “Film Independent at LACMA” kicked off recently with the premiere of Johnny Depp’s “The Rum Diary,” a showing of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” from 2011’s Sundance Film Festival, and several International film classics. Barco is proud to support LACMA’s film offerings with its DLP Cinema® projector.  Featuring efficient optics and a smart, modular design, Barco’s family of projectors offer the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.   Photo copyright 2012 Museum Associates/LACMA.
