I was involved in the outfitting of the main cinema and other display and audio systems at the site. The preparation took two years with equipment built, redesigned, rebuilt in California and Tampa,Florida. I was involved in the film and had Graphic Films change to 2.35/1 anamorphic from the 1.33/1 they had plan to provide. While at my visits to Graphic I met John Dykstra who later went on to do the Star Wars films. The film won an Academy Award Nomination.
The main theatre was 35mm film with multi-channel sound. The film was in an endless loop cabinet and the custom automation could run up to three shows and hour and variations during the day. There was a panic button to allow the user to slow down the start due to crowds. Ballentyne projector (which Disney used for Disneyworld). Special experimental film sprockets supplied by Lavezzi evolved to the VKF series. Other movie displays where done with Horston 16mm cinema projectors. One room was designed with sub-woofers to shake the room.
