Public pressure may lead to 3D theatre in city
By Mark Price
Hoyts Cinemas Ltd is considering adding another dimension to Dunedin’s movie-going landscape. By March, if all goes well, Dunedin audiences could be watching movies in 3D, beginning with a new 3D version of Alice in Wonderland.
To gauge public support, Hoyts has launched a Facebook site with the aim of getting 15,000 members. Facebook Link: “Bring 3D to Dunedin!”

Joshua Prince-Ramus: Building a theater that remakes itself
Joshua Prince-Ramus believes that if architects re-engineer their design process, the results can be spectacular. Speaking at TEDxSMU, Dallas, he walks us through his fantastic re-creation of the local Wyly Theater as a giant “theatrical machine” that reconfigures itself at the touch of a button.
TEDtalksDirector 26 January 2010 (filmed Oct 2009)
–Joshua Prince-Ramus is best known as architect of the Seattle Central Library, already being hailed as a masterpiece of contemporary culture. Prince-Ramus was US Partner of Rem Koolhaas’ Office of Metropolitan Architecture before founding his own firm, REX, in 2006.
“Joshua Prince-Ramus isn’t just creating buildings. In a field obsessed with celebrity, he’s putting the work – and his workers – first.”
