I just thought I’d touch base and let you know that The Crystal Palace in Mt Eden does still function as a theatre.
Screenings are limited at the moment to monthly viewings of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room (2003)… usually the first Friday of every month and the odd special event.
Recently Auckland's annual 24Hour Movie Marathon was held there with several hundred people camped out in the theatre to watch the usual diverse selection of film offered by Ant Timpson and his collaborators.
The auditorium is currently lit by halogen work lights but for that weekend I had a go at lighting some of the features (images attached).
The cinema still uses two Peerless Magnarc Carbon Arc projectors… lovingly maintained by the current projectionist.
I’ve been successful in pitching The Crystal Palace as a project for this year’s Loading Docs (loadingdocs.net) and will keep you updated if you’re interested.
If you have any information, images or potential sources of information or images that might help us that would be appreciated.
