UC IRVINE HIB 100 SCREENING ROOM Irvine, California
The cinema screen down, with the maskings retracted in the side wall pockets. Left and right channel speakers on the side walls. The screen is about 28’ wide and 12’6" high. Height remains constant for all formats. The screen is a Stewart with standard perfs and is a single sheet with no seams. At the time I installed the keyswitches some years ago a replacement sheet (without the motor and box) was around $40,000.00 !! Original cost of screen according to the Purchase Order I saw was around $65,000.00
