AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER Silver Spring, Maryland
The Historic Theatre’s right wall. There is definitely a mixed view of the surround speakers. Though certainly not original, the feeling was that they did not permanently damage the room and they brought “state-of-the-art” sound to the room. Thus, they were a net plus. One of the features of the Silver’s original design becomes more apparent in this picture. That is, there is a nautical theme to the building (note the circular light fixture on the side wall).
