This morning P6 visited the Odeon at Braehead to see Tron as part of the IntoFilm Scottish Film Festival. We chose Tron as its computer graphics (CGI) were state of the art and paved the way for other films with CGI.
Andy the manager showed us some of the old film that films were recorded on.
Then he showed us the new hard disks that films are shown on nowadays – this one has Justice League on it!
This is where all the popcorn is stored – this amount will probably get eaten during Star Wars.
Here’s where they used to cut and edit film.
And here is where the films were loaded to the projectors..
Here’s a modern projector…
And the state-of-the-art IMAX projectors.
