Here’s your opportunity to find out once and for all how digital projection (including DOLBY digital 3D) works at a drive-in, while also bumping shoulders with other drive-in theatre operators. Food, fun, friendship, and a couple days together with others who share your same interests and concerns. Learn how a basic digital setup works and some of the amazing optional “bells and whistles” available in top-line packages. Get the facts about VPFs. Find out how you can lease equipment. At this conference you can learn how to load and operate a digital projector. You can leave this conference not only knowing all about digital projection but you can also leave with a purchase (if that is your goal)! New or USED, with or without a warranty, with or without VPFs, by cash, credit, or lease, there will be vendors in attendance ready to make a deal with you for your theatre(s) so come prepared! Bring details on your screen measurements, throw, and whether you are 3-phase or single phase. Experts will help you narrow down exactly what you need to illuminate your screen(s). You don’t have to commit to anything. In fact, you can choose to stay with 35mm film and simply sit back and laugh at the other attendees who opt to make arrangements to convert!
If you can only make it down for ONE DAY, make that day the Friday 11/4 session!
Thursday evening (11/3) “Meet and Greet” with other attendees
Friday (11/4 ALL DAY) Vendor presentations/discussions from concessions to digital projection.
