AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER Silver Spring, Maryland
The Kinoton ST500E platter system in its “normal” mode (covered). The platter can be used with any projector for theatres #2 and #3. The platter primarily functions as a backup when running non-archival films. It can also be used if a feature is to have an extended run (every Sunday for a summer, for instance). However, since films are moved very frequently at the AFI/Silver, the overhead of putting the film on the platter makes it less favorable.
The dubber can be seen in the background. It is equipped identically to the one in the Historic Theatre. It can work with either theatre 2 or 3.
