Digital projection systems are the latest thing, and allow new local cinemas like the Scala to have unprecedented flexibility and quality in programming movies to meet a range of local needs. Forget hairs and fluff being projected unwittingly with a tired 35mm film print; digital is high quality, every time.
It is a lot simpler to operate too. Movies are still shot on film, but are digitised to a very high resolution by the studios and issued to the cinema in encrypted discs.
A digital cinema like the Scala can screen a normal DVD, a YouTube clip, games, live TV feeds, pretty much anything that audiences are used to in the modern information age.
