The Oldest Cinema in South-Eastern Europe Went Digital with LMT

LMT Laboratory of Multimedia Technologies, a digital cinema and AV system integrator from Zagreb, Croatia, helped the legendary Kino Karaman in Split, Croatia, extend its life in another dimension - the digital one. Kino Karaman is the oldest continuously operating cinema in south-eastern Europe, still in the same hall where it originally opened for business in 1907.

"Leaving our mark on the cinema which operates continuously since 1907 is an award in itself for us techno- and cinema-enthusiasts at LMT. We installed a digital projector in the room where in late 1907 Pathé Frères’ The Grand Phono-Biograph was placed” says Zlatko Jelacic, General Manager at LMT.
 
“While with the manually driven Phono-Biograph projection speed was adjusted approximately, the latest digital technology leaves no room for anything less than perfection and is helping to keep the legend of the oldest cinema in SE Europe go on."
 
Situated in Split’s ancient city center, within the Roman emperor Diocletian's Palace built between the late 3rd and the early 4th century A.D., this small theater represents a unique opportunity to feel the spirit of the early days of cinematography, in the very spot where history was made. The cinema was changing names through the stormy times of WWI and WWII, until 1993 when it was renewed and its original name was restored.
