Case Study: ezFrame Series at Laguna Playhouse in Laguna Beach, CA (May. 4, 2016)
Elite Screens Featured at the World Renowned Laguna Playhouse
The historic theater in one of America’s most prestigious communities features
Elite’s ezFrame projection screen as a center-stage attraction through its nightly performances.
Elite’s dedication to superb performance specifications has resulted in the use of its product lines everywhere from celebrity home theaters to businesses, training facilities and government installations. However, the best compliment may come from its use in the paradigm of performance standards, theater. Jim Prodger, the Laguna Playhouse Operations Director, has over 30-years experience in theater, film and television from various domestic and international venues to HBO and the BBC. “We just purchased Elite’s fixed frame projection screen 144 by 120 inches of beautiful clarity and we love it.” Said Prodger. “I would recommend this screen to anyone who needs a big, light, beautiful projection surface; we’ve used the screen for everything from city council meetings to youth theater productions to Laguna Dance and the Laguna Beach Concert Band.” This location is a common venue for many A-list celebrities when they take to the stage in Orange County, California.
