The Drive-In Theatre Alliance (DITA) is holding a conference in Dallas, TX, on 11/4/11. Attendance is open to drive-in owners/ operators AND independent, small town, and art-house hardtop owners/operators as well! We are all in the same boat, struggling with the shrinking 35mm print supply while facing what appears to be a daunting (and costly) decision to convert to digital within a short time frame or have our screens left in the dark. While this conference will include demos on concessions, the bulk of the sessions will be on digital cinema. What equipment is needed to establish a digital booth? What basics can you get by with? Is USED equipment available...can it work for me....what are the risks? New equipment, package deals with some of the leading sales and installation companies will be presented (Film-Tech's Brad Miller and Jeremy Spracklen will be there, too). We want attendees to leave with a clear understanding of the choices available and how they work in a totally non-threatening/non-pressure-sales environment. We will also visit a drive-in theatre (Galaxy in Ennis, TX) that uses digital including 3D on two of their screens! See for yourself, see digital in operation, with the host and hostess (Martin and Marsha Murray) more than happy to answer your questions on equipment, logistics, booking, etc. Again, we are all in the same boat so that is why indoor operators have an open invitation to attend this meeting!
Hurry, though...conference deadline to register is approaching!
