Burlington, WI: Plaza Theater Installs 4K Digital Cinema Projection

Posted on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 3:41 PM

The costs of the industry conversion to Digital Cinema Projection systems have led many small theaters to close their doors permanently, but the Plaza Theater in Burlington, Wisconsin has made the investment by installing new 4K projectors from Sony. The Burlington Standard Press published an article on April 4, 2013 that talks about the new projectors and interviews owner Shad Branen about the conversion:

When Shad Branen talks about the long history of the Plaza Theater – and the fact that it has essentially used the same technology of film projected on a screen since it opened in 1927 – he gets a little bit nostalgic.

But as a businessman and theater owner, Branen is also forced to have a practical side.

And when his practical side told him it’s time to change or go the way of the dinosaurs, Branen listened.

The 9 p.m., March 22, showing of “Oz the Great and Powerful” was the last at the theater projected in the 35-millimeter film format.

Since then all of the shows on the Plaza’s four screens have been projected in clear, crisp 4K digital format.
