Barco Celebrates “Disney's A Christmas Carol” Train Tour
“Disney's A Christmas Carol” Train Tour uses Barco DP-2000 Digital Cinema Projectors for the Traveling, State-of-the-Art Digital 3D Theatre.
hen “Disney's A Christmas Carol” Train Tour, sponsored by HP, makes its debut at Los Angeles' Union Station this Memorial Day Weekend (May 22nd – 25th), and subsequently launches its 40-city whistle stop tour across the U.S. over the next 24 weeks, Barco's DP-2000 digital cinema projectors will be on board. Disney has selected Barco's state-of-the-art projectors to provide the public with a special sneak peek at its spectacular new holiday release, in a traveling Disney Digital 3D™ theatre that will be erected at each stop along the way. For each showing, Dolby Laboratories will provide its Dolby® 3D Digital Cinema technology, which when combined with Barco's DP-2000 projectors, delivers realistic color and sharp images on standard white screens.
Slated for a November 6 release, “Disney's A Christmas Carol” stars Jim Carrey and is directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis. The nationwide rail tour beginning on May 22nd is free to the public at each venue, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie, culminating with the 3D sneak peek of footage shown inside Disney's remarkable, 48-foot wide, 120 seat Disney Digital 3D theatre.
Lylle Breier, senior vice president of Worldwide Special Events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, said, “We're thrilled to be using state-of-the-art digital projectors from Barco, and the latest 3D technology from Dolby Laboratories, to showcase these incredible scenes from the exciting and ground-breaking 'Disney's A Christmas Carol,' directed by visionary director Robert Zemeckis. This allows us to present images from the film in the best possible way, and to demonstrate the excitement that awaits moviegoers this November. The train tour is free to visitors of all ages, and we know that everyone is going to have a great time exploring the four custom-designed rail cars, and participating in the fun activities, and demonstrations that go along with it.”
"We are extremely pleased to be working together with The Walt Disney Studios on this one-of-a-kind nationwide train tour,” said Joe DeMeo, Barco's Director of Sales for Digital Cinema, N.A. “Barco is proud to be bringing 'Disney's A Christmas Carol' to life utilizing Barco 3D projectors and pleased that Disney selected our projectors for this unique and historic event. Disney is a worldwide leader in the entertainment industry and is renowned for their image quality and excellence. This experience represents a true synergy in image quality and entertainment."

About “Disney's A Christmas Carol” movie
“Disney's A Christmas Carol,” a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking, performance-capture 3D motion picture event. Ebeneezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begins the holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (Gary Oldman) and his cheery nephew (Colin Firth). But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey, revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it's too late. Through the magic of performance-capture technology, Jim Carrey tackles seven roles, including Scrooge and all of the Christmas spirits.
