Upgrades, which began in January with a 4K DCP digital projector and Dolby 3D capabilities, were finished in May and June with Meyer EXP sound system, Kinoton dual projectors for 16- and 35-millimeter film, new upholstered seats, and enhanced sound treatments for the entire room. Renovations were funded by a $1 million grant from the Bentson Foundation, which will also allow the Walker to digitize and present selected films in its Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Study Collection.
