I work at a movie theater and for this years holiday party my coworker brought a switch and hooked it up to the projector so we could have a smash tournament on the theater screen. Here is a picture of the result I figured this sub would appreciate :)

  1. Appreciated, take my upvote.

    Below is completely off-topic, be advised.

    In a weird way (maybe because seeing unusual things reflected on a big screen) this reminds me when back in the 90’s I needed to scan a 35 mm slide, but the film scanner was out of commission. I took the slide to the largest auditorium at the university (with a permission), reflected it on the screen, and took a regular photo with my 35 mm SLR camera (Canon AE-1 for those interested). After a rush development and a print-out to 15×20 cm in a nearby photo shop I could finally scan the slide on my assigned flatbed scanner (whopping 300 DPI in full colour with a software enhancement).

    And what did I do with that? I photoshopped updates to the image, and printed out a 35 mm slide (yes, we had an actual slide printer) and brought it to the rush development again (we were good customers). The doctor, who needed this slide with him on his trip abroad, got it on time before his flight departed.

  2. I inquired about doing this sort of thing about a year ago for a small group and got quoted a price tag upwards of 3k for two hours with a theater chain that rhymes with eagle. I’d be willing to pay a more reasonable price but that was insane.

  3. I love this stuff. I would always bring my systems in for the last week of school and project something on the board. We did smash, Mario kart, whatever was multiplayer. One year, I even brought donkey konga and 4 sets of bongo controllers for band class and everybody took turns playing those cheesy songs.

  4. Oh man, back in the day we had two digital projectors close enough together to set up a LAN party for Halo… 3? Either 3 or Reach. Doesn’t matter. The point is, even a quarter of a theater screen is fucking huge and 4 v 4 never felt so good. I also got to try The Force unleashed on it. Even with its dated graphics it felt so epic to lighting those fucks in the intro level.

  5. When I worked as a movie theater projectionist, the projector was an analogue film projector. Or rather two projectors, because the movies came on 5-8 reels, so we had to switch every 15-20 minutes. I was a huge gamer at the time, and would have killed to have this kind of setup.

  6. When I was a kid my grandparents owned a bar with a huge projector screen for watching sports, I always asked if I could hook my mega drive up to it so that I could play games on it but they where concerned it might break the projector.

    When they closed for refurbishment, my Granda picked me up and told me to bring my computer games, we then drive to the bar and my Granda has one chair and the projector in the centre of the room and we hook it up. I remember being blown away playing sonic 2 on the projector and laughing my head off at the human sized sonic dashing about.

    That was one of the best gaming experiences of my child hood.

  7. Makes me think of our local 4K theater — still the only one in the entire state. The resolution is good enough that I can’t see pixels, just like the good old days of 35mm film, which is the reason why I go there, but holy crap are the contrast and black level awful. I feel like we’re having to wait quite a long time for digital projectors to catch up to film technology of decades ago.

  8. Thats almost exactly what were doing at our holiday party tommorow and I also work at a theatre. Differenece would be that we are most likely not ising the theater screen :(.

  9. do you work at an Alamo as well? i work at an Alamo Drafthouse in Texas, we had a December birthday party tonight. started off watching some dumb movie but then they hooked up the switch and we played smash for hours and they gave us free beer. it was awesome

  10. We used to do this every couple of months at the cinema I worked at. Each screen would have a different game playing, with one screen doing karaoke for those not inclined towards gaming

  11. That is amazing.

    I wish that laptops can someday be able to be plugged into projectors and stuff so people can play PC games in wide screen. This is just cutting edge man. Nintendo’s ahead of the curve. <3
