New Projection Lenses at Midland Drive-In

June 8th, 2008

As of Saturday night I’ve installed new lenses at the Midland Drive-In. The new ISCO lenses replace the probably 40 or more year old lenses which included Ultra Panastar adjustable anamorphic lenses. Bottom line… there have apparently been some improvements in projection lens technology in the last few decades (go figure!). The new lenses result in a brighter, sharper, more colourful picture. More importantly, I can now focus the anamorphic (cinemascope, scope) picture left to right all the way across the screen (the old right projector scope lens couldn’t achieve anywhere near decent side to side focus).

Added to the new digital FM stereo transmitter I installed before we opened this year and the DTS Digital Sound I installed in late August last year, we’ve probably got one of the best combined picture and sound presentations of any drive-in in the country. We’re definitely not your father’s crappy sound, lousy picture drive-in. The drive-in is one of my hobbies and my hobbies aren’t crap!
