Stag Theatre

Stag Theatre
Marin County, CA

Review based on various screenings in the late '90s & early '00s.

The screen is 49.5' wide, and projection is impeccable. The image is brightly, evenly focused, rock-solid-steady, and the edges of the frame match the edges of the screen perfectly (a feat that public theatres seem unable to achieve). The screen is not protected by a curtain between showings, but they don't seem to have a problem with vandalism.

The room itself is astoundingly "dead," devoid of the slightest echo. Every surface is covered by a velvety soft material, including the 300 plush seats.

The sound is awesome. The bass rumbles like no other theatre, and the entire dynamic range is sharp and enveloping.

Cinema Grade - N/A - not open to the public
