By Nick Dobreff, Colorado Symphony Publicity | Oct. 4, 2019 – Denver, CO – The Colorado Symphony will unveil a new four screen visual experience for their Movie at the Symphony performances during the 2019/20 season. The upgraded screen setup, which was made possible through collaboration with Denver Arts & Venues, puts four screens directly over the Boettcher Concert Hall stage, giving every patron seated throughout the theatre in the round an incredible, theatrical experience.
The four screens are 20 ft. x 12 ft. and are centrally located over the musicians on stage, allowing patrons to watch the screens and see the orchestra simultaneously without having to move their head. For previous Movie at the Symphony events, three smaller screens were positioned within the house, above patron seating which obstructed the view in some seating areas and made it difficult to see the orchestra and watch the film at the same time.
“This enhanced four screen setup is a game changer for our Movie at the Symphony concerts,” said Tony Pierce, Chief Artistic Officer. “The visual experience looks incredible throughout the hall as this allows us to fully take advantage of Boettcher Concert Hall’s in-the-round design. There won’t be a bad seat in the house!”
The previous screen setup limited the usable seats in Boettcher Concert Hall to around 1600. The new four screen setup will provide incredible viewing angles from nearly all of the over 2,700 seats within Boettcher Concert Hall.
