Back when I was workprinting I tended to order the w/p balanced for
Xenon on the theory that better it would look a bit warm on tungsten
than too cold on Xenon...... depending on the movie you might be
fine without filtering it....... projecting w/p I sometimes just put
a piece of 1/2 CTB i.e. "Color Temperature Blue" lighting correction
"gel" (it's not a gel) taped over the lens. (Full CTB = # 80 filter).
A full #80 robs too much light, I'd try like an 80C -- ~ 1 stop loss.
