Mann Tamarac Square
Denver, CO, USA
The exterior of Mann's Tamarac 6. The theater does so well that
other merchants decided to build an entire mall around it to take advantage
of the business that the mighty theater brings.
Inside the mall the doors open for business and the crowd rushes in!
This 6 plex is a staple trademark of decor and cleanliness.
One box office station is always over-sufficient to handle the masses
that choose the Tamarac.
Just look how busy this theater is on a Saturday night! No wait,
that's Tom the manager standing there.
Have you ever seen a more glorious hallway?
This is the large auditorium as viewed from the front.
And this is the large auditorium as viewed from the rear.
Cleanliness and maintenance is top priority at the Tamarac.
This set of seats offers a free shower to patrons whenever it rains.
The Tamarac's booth organization is a model for which all other booths
are judged. Pictured here is the main buildup station, along with
the backup sound system should the rack mounted ones ever die during a
And there's the sound system for the big house. WOW! Dolby
has personally put their seal on this classic CP50. Nothing beats
the awesome power of the BGW and QSC amps both painstakingly custom wired
to create the finest sound system within a mile.
Because ambient lighting is important to Tamarac patrons, this theater
has installed gigantic port windows, compete with real plate glass.
Nothing is too good for the Tamarac. In fact, the Kelmar film
cleaning bracket just wasn't quite good enough. Pictured here is
the "Tamarac special" film cleaning bracket, which always maintains perfect
alignment on the floor between the projector and platter. Notice
the masking tape "Film Cleaner" label. This helps avoid confusion
amongst the projectionists.
Although not quite the monster of the large auditorium's sheer power,
this is the other stereo sound rack at the Tamarac. Another genuine
Dolby CP50 powered by block Kelmar amplifiers shake the chairs.
But enough of the close-up shots, how does the booth appear overall?
Just like this!
As film handling is of utmost importance to the Tamarac, only ORC platters
with their "dished" platter decks meet the Tamarac's seal of approval.
We didn't want to leave this tour without a shot of a medium sized
auditorium just after a jam packed feature presentation.
