Three-blade shutters at Cinema Orion

Yesterday we (more precisely: Jarni Susiluoto, our projection wizard) installed at last three-blade shutters at our Cinema Orion. They are basic equipment in silent film projection when the film is projected at speeds slower than the standard 24 fps, as we have always known, but we had not been able to solve issues of lamp brightness before this year. A three blade shutter needs more light than the usual two blade shutter. Starting from tonight's screenings of København ved Nat (DK 1910) and Afgrunden (DK 1910) we can enjoy silent films at Orion without flicker.
