Cinema West Sebastopol Cinema
Sebastopol, CA, USA
The exterior of the cinemas. The building was formerly an apple brandy
distillery, and has nine screens, 5 downstairs and 4 upstairs.
The box office and main entrance.
The lower snack bar, with the Cinema West trademark pink-and-blue neon.
Opposite angle of the lobby. The Pepsi machine is there due to some
clause in the contract with Pepsi. It rarely gets used.
The booth in the largest booth: Monee MSP manual turret (one of the
only Monees in existence that actually 'works right') on a CFS SX4500 console
with 3000W bulb, and CFS Super Platter. Note the film cleaner (loaded with
Film-Guard, of course!)
The sound rack in the big auditorium. Dolby DA20/Cat 700 running thru
a USL JS-260 and Smart CS-EX processor, QSC amps and JBL, Frazier, and
The #5 booth: Cinecita SA (since replaced with a Century SA), CFS 2000w
console and Super Platter. Sound in this auditorium is not too great, with
a Smart SR300 system and Radio Shack amps (an Ultra*Stereo and QSC's are
coming soon, promise!) with TOA and Frazier speakers.
The #2 booth: Century SA, CFS console and Super Platter.
#2 Sound Rack: DTS-6 running thru USL JS-260 and Smart CS-EX processors
