Did you know that Club SAW (part of SAW Gallery) can project 35mm film. Thanks to some donations of equipment and lots of free volunteer work it has been up and running for over a year now. The projector has been used for Saturday Night Sinema, Cafe Ex and other independent works.
The Club SAW Projection Booth:
Thanks go out to Paul Gordon, John Yemen, Chris Green, Markus Lemm, ET and Stefan St. Laurent for all their help setting up the projectors and getting the space in order. We also thank SAW Video for letting us use their storage space, SAW Gallery for helping with the renovations, IFCO for letting us use a rewind table, Quickbeam films for donating hand rewinds, amps, audio rack, speaker wire and the Dolby processor, and the Bytowne Cinema for donating a booth monitor amp and a scope lens.
