Admiral Theater shines a new light: New digital projectors have arrived as first part of remodel

The first phase of the remodeling and updating of the Admiral Theater finally began on June 24 when, the Admiral Theater turned on their brand new Laser Digital Projectors. Manager Dinah Brein said, "No more platters, no more bad film prints, no more stoppage in the middle of the movie. Yehaw!"

These two new projectors (with two more to come by the end of the year) utilize all new laser technology
replacing the standard projector light bulbs used in most theaters producing an on-screen image that is bigger, brighter and better.

The full remodel will involve adding two auditoriums (with elevated stadium seating), all-new chairs with cup holders, new carpeting and curtains, new screens (including 3D capability) and improved heating, air conditioning and ventilation.

Additional improvements will also be evident in the restrooms, concessions area and upstairs Crow’s Nest Lounge.

10th annual Delridge Day Festival set for Aug. 8

information from VieWS

Last year’s event almost didn’t happen. The annual one-day celebration in the past had been coordinated by the North Delridge Neighborhood Council but they had to decline due to some volunteer burnout and transitions. Having successfully conducted the Gathering of Neighbors event for several years, VieWS decided to take coordination of Delridge Day on… although with only a handful of organizers — all still neighborhood volunteers! — VieWS expected to scale down the event. No skate competition was held but we were able to offer free skating lessons to neighbors. The kid’s activities were still there but unfortunately there were no bouncy houses!

VieWS recently completed an online history of the event, and discovered that a miscounting had occurred – and this year will mark the 10th anniversary of the Delridge Day event. It began on June 24, 2006 with a picnic, a few booths, and a musical performance by Laura Love at the Dragonfly Pavilion.
