Even the Packewaia cinema goes 3D
The Packewaia Cinema in Ushuaia, the capital of the Argentine province of “Tierra del Fuego” (“Land of Fire”) and the southernmost city in the world, has installed in June 2010 a Christie 3D digital projection system that is already playing to packed houses.
Since not all prints are available in digital format yet, the 35mm projector is still necessary, but there was hardly any space to have the two projectors in the booth at the same time. The chief projectionist designed an elevator system that allowed them to lower the Christie projector out of the way for a 35mm screening; then raise it to its operating position for digital screenings.
