I hope the Senator gets better DVD projection equipment soon. THe DVD screening of HELP! looked like crap. DVD projections at the Charles, on the other hand, are difficult to differentiate from film projections.

I'm glad the $40K or $50K digital projector that, if I'm not mistaken, the Abell Foundation bought for the Charles is working on the Charles's tiny screen.

Personally, I still prefer The Senator's 40 foot screen and state of the art sound. The Senator could admittedly use a better digital projector, but yours is the only complaint I've heard about the quality.

I've never been impressed with the Charles. Most of their screens are so small that, except for the film selection, it's really not very much different from the multiplex experience. Although it's an old building, I didn't even know it had been a theatre for many years when I first went there, because it just doesn't have that historic theatre feel.

Also, I signed up for their mailing list, and they never even send out listings of the current films that are playing there --- only the weekly old films. As a result, since I don't subscribe to the paper, I never know what's playing at the Charles and therefore almost never go there. How lame do they have to be to not even use free advertising via email to its full potential? Seriously. The owner of the Charles thinks he's going to be able to run The Senator better than Kiefaber? Give me a break.
