Coming in 2012 to the Oakland Paramount theater, Abel Gance’s legendary NAPOLEON.

These performances are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Two custom built full-size screens will flank the Paramount’s screen and will extend outside and beyond the theatre’s massive proscenium arch. Temporary projection booths will be installed with synchronized 35mm projectors for the incredible triple-screen finale .
