Christie Supports Screenings of “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith” for Europe’s Largest Digital Release

Pan-European Digital Screenings Feature Christie CP2000 2K DLP Cinema™ Projectors
On May 18, the last episode of George Lucas’ Star Wars prequel trilogy, “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith,” officially opens in the U.S. and Europe. Millions of fans are going to learn how Anakin Skywalker is transformed by the dark side of the force to become the evil Darth Vader.

Digitally equipped cinemas across Europe will be the first to provide Star Wars fans the answer to that question and Christie, a leading manufacturing of film, e-cinema and Digital Cinema projection, will be helping to make that happen. Theatres across the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Switzerland will be using Christie 2K DLP Cinema projectors to screen the digital release of the epic.

German cinema theatres like UCI-Cinema Düsseldorf, Ufa-Crystal Palace in Dresden and CineCitta Multiplex-Cinema in Nuremberg (equipped with Christie CP2000 2K Digital Cinema projectors) have experienced a sudden demand for tickets to the digital screenings. CineCitta has already sold 2000 tickets for the first “Star Wars Weekend,” with an incredible 93% of all ticket sales for the digital version of the movie.

A large number of Christie Digital Cinema projectors have recently been installed as part of the first Pan-European Digital Cinema roll-out, an initiative driven by XDC, a new member company of the EVS Group (the manufacturer of Digital Cinema server technology). The initiative supports the CineStore™ server infrastructure required for the digital exhibition of movies like “Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.”
