How military veterans are fighting to preserve 70mm

A unique element of the Legion Theater is the use of the customized wood wall panels at the ear level of the audience. The idea was to use images from war movies and to pixelate them to abstraction, then use the resulting patterns to cut holes into the wood. Complemented with acoustically absorbent materials behind the panels, the pattern provides both absorption and reflections, while infusing the space with the imagery related to the Legion’s military veteran membership. The resulting wall paneling avoids distracting reflections but provides some ambient room character, rather than a purely absorptive environment. –Peter Grueneisen. Photo: Taiyo Watanabe
