In the latest casualty of Hollywood's march to digital technology, Technicolor Inc., the French-owned film processing and post-production company, has closed its film lab in Glendale less than three years after its opening.
The 40,000-square-foot-facility adjacent to DreamWorks Animation on Flower Street shut down Thursday, an employee at the lab told Times.
A spokeswoman for Technicolor did not returns call seeking comment.
Opened in 2011, the facility replaced a much larger lab at Universal Studios that closed. Technicolor had previously lost its contract with Universal to rival Deluxe. About 100 of the 360 workers laid off as a result of that closure were moved to the Glendale lab.
In addition to offering such services as processing film negatives and color correction, the lab focused on developing 70-millimeter film prints for Imax and other big-screen formats.
