The era of 35 mm film in South Korea‘s movie industry has been phased out in favor of digital projectors at major theaters across the nation.
Cinecube, the only movie theater which supported analogue film screening, recently replaced its projectors with a digital model. As the arthouse theater opted for a digital system, Korean moviegoers have nowhere to watch latest films on the traditional reel.
Cinemate, a film caption company, said it is closing down its business to focus on the digital post-production business.
With digital production emerging as the mainstream, Korea’s major film developers have been forced out of business in the past few years as leading cineplex chains switched to digital projectors.
