Temporary Flat Screen for "Evita"

 
In 1996, a flat screen was placed in front of the curved Cinerama Screen and a black fabric ceiling was stretched over the audience to simulate a flat ceiling. This was done because director Alan Parker did not want his film EVITA played on the curved screen for the exclusive Los Angeles engagement. The flat screen was removed right after that engagement.
