Arclight Cinemas Brings the Dome into A New Galaxy of Viewing
ArcLight Announces an incredible cinematic viewing experience for guests starting with “Star Wars” release in the historic Cinerama Dome
ArcLight Cinemas, a premiere movie-going destination is excited to announce their
collaboration with Christie® and Dolby® to bring the most
advanced movie-viewing experience possible for ArcLight guests at the
legendary Cinerama Dome in time for the most anticipated movie
experience of the year“Star Wars:
The Force Awakens.”Beginning this Thursday, December 17th,
visitors to The Dome will be fully immersed in both cinematic history
and new technology.
“We are always looking for the most innovative and immersive experience
for our guests and feel the timing is perfect to bring the laser viewing
experience to The Dome, which has such an iconic cinema history in
states Gretchen McCourt, Executive
Vice President, ArcLight Cinemas.
The Dome has been upgraded with dual-head Christie
6P laser projectors and Dolby® 3D, which can project more than
double the light of an average 3D projection system and will enable guests to
view the nuances of the film and thoroughly enjoy the brilliance of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and future
releases. Christie® extends the boundaries of 3D cinema with
dramatically increased 3D light levels combined with Dolby® 3D advanced
color separation technology. The Dome is already one of the largest
screens in the nation and with the projection upgrade, it will be one of the
largest screens with Christie laser projection.
“For more than 50 years, the iconic Cinerama Dome has been pushing the
technological boundaries of movie presentations, and with the installation of
the groundbreaking Christie 6-Primary (6P) dual-head laser projection system,
ArcLight Cinemas is once again ensuring that their patrons have a most memorable
movie-going experience,” said George Scheckel, senior director, Americas, for
Christie. “We congratulate ArcLight on
their choice, which continues our decade-long relationship that has seen
Christie install scores of projectors in the chain’s theater throughout the
3D uses advanced color separation technology instead
of the polarization technology. That makes it ideally suited for next
generation laser projectors, which generate more light and create brighter
images than bulb projectors. Dolby® 3D uses the laser’s native color
light sources (red, green, blue) so no filters or light re-cycling is required.
