Tear-out of Great Lakes Science Center theater at full throttle (video)
Major tear-out lays a foundation for the rebirth of the Great Lakes Science Center's former Cleveland Clinic Omnimax Theater. Watch video CLEVELAND, Ohio - A theater is said to "go dark" when there is no show. The Great Lakes Science Center's former Omnimax Theater did that August 29th after the last movie. But as of Tuesday the term took on new meaning because GLSC staff and others began dismantling the equipment that served the theater for the past two decades. Most of the furnishings and carpeting also is being replaced. The most radical change is in the projection booth. Before a first-of-its-kind digital three-projector laser projection system can go, the old system has to come out. Projectionists Jeffry Johnson and Scott Woodruff began dismantling the old system on Tuesday. Giant reels of film were scattered about as they worked. These are generally at least 40 inches across. Some arrive that way, while others have been assembled at the theater by splicing more than a dozen smaller reels together. One of the most demanding tasks was pulling out the xenon projection lamps, which look like large jugs with steel projections at each end. Johnson said they had to wear protective gear because the lamps, each worth $6,000, are under pressure. In use, each one is powered by 15,000 watts with cooling provided by deionized distilled water. The digitalization of images eliminates the high cost of acquiring and shipping large, heavy film prints. Thong Nguyen, a technician from Omnimax corporate headquarters near Toronto, Ontario, said he his helping with the dismantling because some of the equipment can be put back to work at other Omnimax venues around the world. The revamped space is supposed to open next month, when it will be called the Cleveland Clinic Dome Theater, a natural choice because a substantial gift at the dawn of the science center gave the clinic the naming rights for the space. The sophisticated digital system results from between D3D Cinema and Christie Digital Systems, and will feature ultra-high 6K resolution. The science center recently completed a $1.8 million capital campaign to finance the digital conversion and theater remodel, according to the press release. Benefactors included the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission, the Fred A. Lennon Charitable Trust, the Lubrizol Foundation, the Cliffs Foundation, PNC Foundation and other corporations, foundations and private citizens supported the campaign.
