Apollo and Sony Partnership Lead to Black Swan Doubling Bookings

200% boost in sales for classical productions
With Natalie Portman scooping the ‘Best Actress’ Oscar for Black Swan, Apollo Cinemas has seen a surge in tickets for people wanting to watch classical productions.
 
The tale of the New York ballerina has inspired a 200% rise in the number of people signing up to Apollo Cinemas’ Global Season of Opera and Ballet, which aims to bring classic ballet and opera productions to regional communities. The season has shown productions from The Nutcracker to La Boheme in crisp Sony Digital Cinema 4K resolution as well as screening Carmen in 3D from this Saturday (5th March, 2011).
 
To give its consumers a truly immersive and engaging visual experience, Apollo has been digitizing its film projectors to Sony 4K digital cinema projection systems across its circuit since spring 2009, now converting all 78 screens in operation and awaiting their last site in Rhyl to be reopened in July to complete the digitization project of its entire circuit. Sony Digital Cinema 4K technology allows consumers to experience exceptional picture quality from every seat in the cinema, providing world-leading “Easy on the Eye” 3D images and spectacular detail even on the largest screens, it’s almost like you are on stage with the performers.  Sony Digital Cinema 4K technology offers a unique 3D experience by projecting both right and left eye images simultaneously.
 
From March 5th 2011, Apollo will be screening the operatic film Carmen in 3D. Filmed in 3D during two performances at the Royal Opera House, Carmen in 3D is a feature film depicting acclaimed director George Bizet’s opera classic. Sony 4K digital technology will allow audiences to view Carmen with the most state-of-the-art on-screen presentation available, delivering a fully immersive 3D experience.
 
Rob Arthur, Managing Director Apollo Cinemas, says: “We’ve seen a growing trend for people wanting to watch classical productions and I’m sure Black Swan’s Oscar win will see our Global Season of Opera and Ballet go from strength to strength. Black Swan has definitely made ballet more appealing to a mass audience and we hope to continue to make classics more accessible to our local audiences.”
 
David McIntosh, Director, Sony Professional Solutions, Europe commented, “This just shows that the exciting partnership between Sony and Apollo enables Apollo to capitalize on the enormous opportunities that Sony Digital Cinema 4K offers to strengthen and sustain their business, as well as to revolutionize the movie-going experience for its customers.  By providing not only the state-of-art Sony Digital Cinema 4K Projector and its complete solution, but also the opportunity to collaborate with our sister companies Sony Music Entertainment, Sony Computer Entertainment, we are aiming to provide a vast potential in supplying unique contents to our exhibition partners”

Tickets for Carmen in 3D are also available from Apollo Cinemas website – www.apollocinemas.com
