Historic University Landmark is Revived with Christie LCD Display Technology

Posted 4/7/2010

Bloomsburg University, in Bloomsburg Pennsylvania, recently combined 19th century Georgian Revival-style architecture with 21st century display technology at the historic Carver Hall.   

Students and visitors who utilize the newly updated Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium in the Hall are treated to a revived contemporary visual experience with Christie’s high brightness widescreen LCD projector.   The Georgian Revival-style Carver Hall has been an icon at the University.  Built in 1867, it was the first building on campus and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

“The auditorium hosts special events and acts as an overflow room for class activities,” reports Randall Presswood, Director, Media and Performing Arts.  “We don’t regularly schedule classes there, but it’s always a great venue for movies that need to be shown for particular courses, programs produced by the campus TV studio, the speakers series run by the Provost Office, and our major university performance series.  We can seat 350 people on the ground level and 200 more on the balcony.”
