Oliver Stone Chooses Planar’s Runco Brand for New Home Theater

3 min read

Legendary Filmmaker uses Runco displays to rediscover his love for films

Oliver Stone is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time with legendary screen credits including films such as Platoon, JFK, Wall Street, and Midnight Express. His works have won a total of nine Academy Awards(R) and nine Golden Globes(R) along with a gamut of other honors. Stone demands the best for his films, and the displays used in his home theater are no exception. When it came time to upgrade his personal theater in May 2011 with a new 3-chip DLP projector and 65″ LCD flat-panel display, Stone selected a Runco projector and Runco LCD flat-panel display because they offer the same quality and performance as he would find in a professional cinema.

“The Runco projector I recently installed in my home provides as close an experience I’ve had to being in a top-flight motion picture theater,” stated Stone. “The flat panel display has an amazing image quality that draws me in. You will end up watching more movies than you think and falling in love once more with films you saw a long time ago. It’s been a journey of rediscovery for me.”

Known for using several different camera and film formats, often in the same film, Stone’s eye for cinema goes beyond the traditional views and delves into a much deeper understanding of cinematography. Because of the different film formats and edgy camera angles, his films provide unique viewing experiences that can only be recreated using the best video products available.
