Christie Digital Projectors Light Up Screens for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

- Christie projectors used during production, post-production and digital exhibition of Episode II -

Christie is pleased to announce the use of its projectors by Lucasfilm Ltd. for the production, post-production and beginning May 16 the exhibition of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones – the first all-digital major motion picture.

“Lucasfilm continues to break new ground in digital filmmaking and we’re thrilled to have been a part of the production of the most technologically advanced movie to date,” says Craig Sholder, Director, Business Development, Digital Cinema. “At Christie we’re committed to advancing Digital Cinema technology and providing high-performance projection solutions to the Film Industry from production to exhibition.”

In 1999, Christie signed a three-year agreement to supply Lucasfilm with the latest projection equipment to meet its production needs. Christie projectors were first used by Lucasfilm in the post-production of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and were used even more extensively for Attack of the Clones.

With the decision to shoot Episode II digitally, Christie projectors played an important role in the production of the movie as Lucasfilm brought a Christie projector on location to Australia to review daily footage. In the final post-production phase, conducted at Industrial Light & Magic, the filmmakers used a Christie Digital Cinema projector for the editing and mastering of Attack of the Clones.

On May 12, a Christie Digital Cinema projector was used for the Los Angeles premiere held at the infamous Mann’s Chinese Theatre. When Star Wars opens around the world on May 16, 67 theaters furnished with Christie products will be presenting Episode II digitally the way George Lucas intended it to be seen.
