My friend John Gordon and me stopped by the newly remodeled Cinerama Dome to see how it looks and sounds. I'm happy to report that the image is very nice. Edge to edge focus (a concern with a curved screen) was very good. Sound quality was excellent. We saw the last 10 minutes of XXX, and it was THUNDEROUS. This is the only theater I've ever been in that has surround speakers in a full 360 degree circle. They've done a good job with it. Since John works in the pro side of movie theaters, we were able to get into the Dome's projection booth. It was exciting to see THREE projectors there, ready to project true Cinerama. While we were talking to the projectionist, he mentioned that the Dome will be having a 70 MM film festival next month, including Lawrence of Arabia and 2001. It will be an exciting couple of months for LA movie buffs.
