The only single-screen movie theater left in the state of Louisiana
is upgrading - in a major way. The historic Prytania Theater has just
upgraded to 4K digital cinema. The Prytania is the oldest operating
theater in the city, having opened
in 1915. It reopened three years ago with new seating, renovated lobby, and this
incredible upgrade to Sony 4K. Woo-hoo!
Now, digital cinemas are
becoming more and more common, but not many are 4K, and fewer are even
showing true 4K material. Sony's Hancock was released in limited distribution in 4K, but the pickings are slim.
Either way. . .
if you're in the New Orleans area, stop by The Prytania, check out a
flick and let us know how it looks. If your report is good, I might
have to plan a road trip. —Leslie Shapiro
