Stereoscopic 3DScreening Cane Toads
The documentary Cane Toads: The Conquest from Australian writer/director Mark Lewis is the first Australian digital 3D feature film, and was a rare 3D entry at Sundance — following the festival's previous (and highly successful) 3D entry in 2008, Mark Pellington's U2 3D. The film screened in Park City's Eccles auditorium, a 1,200-seat venue on Barco’s DP-3000 digital cinema projectors. Playback originated from a Dolby digital cinema server.
Independent exhibitor Cinema West has selected Barco DP-2000 digital cinema projectors for every screen in their new Palladio 16 multiplex in Folsom, California. With a total seating capacity of 3000, built around an energy- efficient concept, the all-digital venue includes six 3D-capable theatres. Once final implementation is complete, the Palladio 16 Cinemas will be able to boast the largest solar system on the roof of any movie theatre in the world.
