Epic Action Movie Lined Up for World’s First 4K DLP Cinema Projection

Cineplex Entertainment debuts 4K screening with Christie Solaria 4K DLP cinema projector
Cineplex Entertainment (“Cineplex”) (TSX: CGX) will debut a world-first showing of a movie in 4K DLP® cinema for moviegoers this week at Galaxy Cinemas Waterloo, using the new Christie® CP4200 platform.

The premium, high-definition 4K digital cinema format delivers four times as many pixels to screens as mainstream digital cinema. The first movie to be screened at the theatre using this platform will be an epic action movie debuting tomorrow.
“At Cineplex our goal is to deliver an exceptional entertainment experience to our guests,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. “Christie projectors provide the sharpest on-screen image so our guests can enjoy the stunning imagery of today’s movies the way they are meant to be enjoyed, on a big screen in a theatre.”
Christie’s new Solaria Series CP4200 platform is a superior 4K DLP® cinema projection solution that drives the world’s most brilliant standard and 3D images, the highest level of content security, and the easiest adaptability, operation and maintenance for cinema operators everywhere. The platform can drive screens as wide as 105 feet, and 3D screens as wide as 75 feet.
“This will mark the first time anywhere that moviegoers will be able to see what’s possible on the big screen with a superior 4K DLP cinema projection solution. Cinema fans are going to enjoy the depth and extreme quality of the visuals this new projection technology delivers,” says Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions, Christie. “We pioneered digital cinema and we’re proud to deliver another ‘first’ to movie audiences and exhibitors.”
“This first installation has been completed at Galaxy Cinemas Waterloo in southern Ontario. The landmark project was managed by Christie and Cineplex, and installed by Cinematronix. The installation features a Solaria Series CP4230 to drive a 65-foot projection throw to a 52-foot wide silver screen,” said Dave Muscat, senior director of sales, Christie Canada. The Solaria Series includes the CP4220 for traditional cinema venues, and the CP4230 designed for the largest theatres, Muscat added.
