As part of KOAT’s original content series, I stopped into AbelCine in Los Angeles to have a look at their cinema sales and rental operation. The always enthusiastic Andy Shipsides sat down for a talk about surviving in a service industry, and their possible future moves.
Christie projectors don’t come cheap, and I was pretty impressed that they offer their clients a calibrated viewing theatre, both for dailies and training purposes. Abel has an idea about how things should be done, and if that means they have to design their own gear to meet that standard, then that’s what they do. Hope you enjoy!
