United Artists MacArthur
Exterior of the UA MacArthur at night.
Dual box offices inside the main entrance so customers don't
get wet during rainy days.
Note: the second box office is just outside this picture to the
The main lobby. Extra large video screen set up by Ian Price.
As you can tell, the lobby is very spacious. A very large double
sided concession stand is behind the Flintstones display. The back
side serves customers who have already gone through the doorman stand.
"Now Seating" sign with a twist...a digital countdown to the minute
of when the film actually starts!
This theater is split down the middle. There are 8 projectors
on each side of the theater. The projectionist must walk through
an upper hallway area (for ADA accessibility) to go between the two sides.
4 of the projectors are up on platforms for the largest houses.

Sound rack for a large auditorium. This theater has 3 different
sound systems. First is the Dolby CP-500 with built in SRD decoding
and cat 701 penthouse readers and Dolby SA-10 for EX.
Second is the Sony DFP-3000 analog/SDDS digital system.
(Not shown is a DTS6-D system run through an Ultra Stereo processor.)
New SDDS digital soundhead reader displaying good news to the folks
at Kelmar...for requiring a second "dummy" cleaner bracket below!
Component Engineering automation with FM-35 failsafes.
Shot of a large auditorium.
(Only the front half of the room would fit within the confinements
of the camera's lens.)
These auditoriums were very well designed and there is virtually no
keystoning at all. All aspect ratios are right on the money.
Light output is excellent.
