Sarah Fang operates a vertical feed 35mm projector, which has been used at the Doris Duke Theatre since the 1970s. It is the only venue on the island where audiences can experience films in the 35mm format, says theater manager Taylour Chang. She says cinephiles believe 35mm offers richer color dynamics and a “grittier” visual quality than contemporary digital film.
