New Marcus Theatres® UltraScreen® At Orland Park Cinema Sports JBL ScreenArray® And AE Series Loudspeaker System
Continuing the successful relationship between Marcus Theatres® and Harman cinema products, the Chicago suburb of Orland Park, Illinois recently celebrated the opening of a new 70-foot-wide UltraScreen® at the Orland Park Cinema. The Orland Park UltraScreen theater seats 400 and is Marcus Theatres’ 12th UltraScreen to date.
Supporting the picture displayed on the large screen at Orland Park is a state-of-the-art audio system, comprised of JBL ScreenArray® and AE Series loudspeakers and Crown Audio’s Digital B-Chain. Located behind the screen are three JBL ScreenArray 4632 3-way loudspeakers for screen channels, along with six 4642A subwoofers. Additionally, a total of eight AC2212/95 compact 2-way loudspeakers are mounted on the side walls (four per side), with an AM4315/95 3-way loudspeaker in each rear corner. The system is powered by Crown CTs amplifiers, loaded with DBC network digital audio modules.
“The system at the Orland Park UltraScreen has worked out great since opening in December 2008,” said Mark Collins, Director of Projection Technology, Marcus Theatres. “We have incorporated JBL and Crown components for similarly designed systems at other UltraScreen locations, and it has proven to be a successful model to follow. That said, as Harman products evolve, so will our systems, as exemplified by a new UltraScreen at the North Shore cinema in Wisconsin, which will include JBL’s new ScreenArray 4732 loudspeakers and Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers. We look forward to hearing the new system when the theater opens in mid-May.”
“The new UltraScreen at Orland Park not only exemplifies the outstanding performance of the Digital B-Chain technology, but also the ability of JBL loudspeakers across different product categories to work optimally together, in this case the ScreenArray and AE Series loudspeakers,” said Chuck Goodsell, Director of Cinema Marketing, JBL Professional.
