Steve Levy

Steve Levy has been a key part of the Warner Bros. Projection and Sound Engineering team for more than a decade. He started his career in 1979 as a theater projectionist in New York, then moved into engineering. During his vast career, he has worked for ABC Television, United Artists Theaters, Loew’s Theatres, Sony Cinema Products, Barco, and NT Audio, before joining Warner Bros. On a day-to-day basis, Steve works with renowned filmmakers to engineer cinema audio in both digital and film formats.

Steve’s interest in Vitaphone started early on while apprenticing as a projectionist and it sparked the desire to collect Western Electric theater equipment as well as learn the art of disc cutting. When Warner Bros. Global Archives and Preservation Services engaged fellow engineer Bob Weitz to construct a turntable and preamplifier to transfer Vitaphone discs and match them with their corresponding pictures, it was only natural that Steve would collaborate with him on the project. For this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, they have figured out how to connect the turntable to a modern 35mm projector in order to play Vitaphone shorts just as theater projectionists did in the early years of sound cinema.
