Telluride Film Festival Celebrates 40th Season with New Meyer Sound-Equipped Theatre

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Telluride Film Festival will debut a brand new Werner Herzog Theatre for this year’s festivities in the Colorado ski town. Movie screenings at this 650-seat theatre will be heard through a cinema system from Meyer Sound, who is a festival sponsor for the third consecutive year. The 2013 Telluride Film Festival is set to run August 29 -September 2, 2013.

"The Werner Herzog Theatre is a huge achievement for Telluride Film Festival and the town of Telluride. It will be the festival’s most technologically advanced, and its sound system is of the utmost importance to us," says Julie Huntsinger, executive director of the festival. "Meyer Sound is a leader in its industry; its sound quality and innovation is unparalleled. Working with Meyer Sound ensures the festival meets its goal of staying on the cutting-edge, and ultimately giving our audience the best film-going experience possible."

The 7.1 surround Meyer Sound system at the Werner Herzog Theatre is anchored by three Acheron® 100 screen channel loudspeakers, each paired with an Acheron LF screen channel loudspeaker. Dolby Atmos surround sound is provided by 22 HMS-12 cinema surround loudspeakers, controlled LFE is provided by 10 X-800C studio subwoofers, and the entire system is driven and aligned by a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with three Galileo 616 processors.

The Werner Herzog Theatre is located inside Telluride’s Town Park Pavilion, which was recently converted from an open-air ice-skating rink. Though now permanently enclosed, the cinema space leaves a large remaining room volume behind the screen. The theatre’s X-800C subwoofers are configured in a cardioid pattern to ensure that defined low end is directed into the room, while limiting low-frequency reverberation in the empty space.

In addition, a Meyer Sound system is deployed in the Galaxy, a pristine screening room transformed from the Telluride Middle School auditorium. The system comprises two Acheron 80 and one Acheron 100 loudspeakers, three Acheron LF loudspeakers, seven X-800C subwoofers, and 20 HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers. A Galileo loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 408 processors provides system drive and processing.

To ensure that the festival’s presentations and panel discussions are heard clearly by the audience, Meyer Sound is providing separate reinforcement systems for each venue. The systems are anchored by MINA™ line array loudspeakers, 500-HP subwoofers, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 408 processor.

To commemorate its 40th anniversary, the Telluride Film Festival has extended this year’s program from four to five days. Operated by the National Film Preserve, Ltd., Telluride has first screened previews of Oscar-winning films including “Argo,” “The King’s Speech,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” and “The Artist.”
