Th e Luce Auditorium screened the movie “August Rush” last Aug. 13 to inaugurate the theater’s brand new LED screen donated by Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn.
The LED screen, consisting of 40 display panels, is more energy efficient with sharper audio and visual qualities compared to plasma screens.
Diomar Abrio, Cultural Affairs Committee chair, said the film screening was also a fund-raising event for typhoon Yolanda victims as proceeds went to the university’s calamity fund.
He added that the Luce auditorium will be showing more films using the new LED screen.
“August Rush” is a 2007 drama film about an orphaned musical prodigy who uses his gift to find his real parents.
