Fantasia SAL – Week 10

Meet the Soundtrack

Fantasia fun fact: Fantasia was the first film to use stereophonic sound. A dozen or so theaters had to upgrade their equipment to show the film in what was called “Fantasound.” They had to install more speakers around the room, as well as new projectors and sound reproduction machines. The estimated cost for the upgrades was around $85,000 per theater, which is close to $1.8 million today when adjusted for inflation.
