Barco’s rolling out a new way to watch movies. Called Barco Escape, the movie format includes three screens, positioned like this:
Barco first showcased the Barco Escape in September by screening scenes from YA movie “The Maze Runner” on the three-screen format. On March 1, Barco will present the movie format again at the first Future of Film Showcase at the Cinequest Film Festival, featuring a video from YouTuber Devin Graham (aka Devin Supertramp).
With around 2.8 million subscribers on YouTube, Devin Supertramp makes live action adventure videos featuring activities like mountain biking and base-jumping. His content will appear on Barco Escape along with short films from various Cinequest directors.
A panel will accompany the Barco Escape screening at Cinequest, which will feature Ted Schilowitz (Barco’s “CinemaVangelist” and Fox’s Futurist — yes, the guy has some great job titles) among other Fox execs. All this will take place at Camera 12 Cinemas in San Jose.
