Cleveland Cinematheque goes digital
Proudly "all-analog" theater adds a digital projector as movie distributors abandon film for hard drives
by WKSU's KABIR BHATIA


Reporter

In The Region:
One of Northeast Ohio's most prominent “all-analog” theaters has converted to digital. The Cleveland Cinematheque was facing a dilemma this year as most distributors switched from film prints -- shipped on metal reels -- to digital movies, which usually come on a DVD or hard drive. Cinematheque Director John Ewing says the donation of a new high-definition projector -- which cost at least $40,000 – has broadened the types of movies available to his audience.

“It’s always been a mix ever since we started in 1986. But our programming was becoming much more weighted toward the classic film. Because they were available on film and new movies were not. I think most people will think it’s film or what it’s always been. It looks that good.”

The new projector was donated by engineer Tom Peterson, who ran a movie sound company in Cleveland from the mid-‘60s to the late ‘80s. Peterson will be on hand to answer questions during a special screening of the thriller “Berberian Sound Studio” on November 11.

Ewing says the new projector is for blu-ray discs. When the Cinematheque moves to a new building nearby in 2015, he plans to add a projector for movies sent on hard drives as well.
