AIMC/Goldcoast, Australia—Oct 14, 2013

Christie Australia Continues to Help Support Local Cinema Industry

Christie®, a world leader in advanced cinema technologies and visual displays, continues to support the Australian International Movie Convention (AIMC) with its range of digital cinema solutions. This marks the fourth consecutive year that AIMC has used Christie Solaria® Series projectors for all the movie screenings that take place from October 14 to 17, 2013 in the Jupiters Theater.

With a history of more than 80 years in the cinema business, Christie has been actively involved in commercial and technological breakthroughs to further the growth of the global cinema industry. In Australia, it has recently worked with Reading International, Inc. to establish a long-term VPF deployment agreement with the Australian and New Zealand subsidiaries of Reading to provide for the digital conversion of all of Reading Cinemas screens in those two countries. 

In July 2013, a Christie Duo™ was also installed in Hoyts’ Blacktown Cinema 5 to light up Australia’s biggest traditional screen. Through its local partners such as Hoyts and Edge Digital Technology in Australia, Christie has supported the AIMC in the last few years with the latest technologies to provide the best possible digital cinema experience for the attendees.

“As the dominant brand in the digital cinema projection market, Christie has always dedicated itself to providing the most current digital cinema technologies worldwide, including Australia. 

Through our local partners in Australia and New Zealand, we have been able to introduce our innovations including the Christie Duo and other visual solutions to the cinema industry in this region. Now, with an Australian-based office, we’re certain that we can work closely with our existing partners to provide even more timely service and support to better serve the needs of the local theaters,” says Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. 

During AIMC, all movie screenings including the Australian premiere of “Captain Phillips” are powered by a Christie CP4220 projector in the Jupiters Theater. As the world's first superior 4K DLP Cinema® Projector and the latest addition to the Christie Solaria Series, the projector together with the Christie IMB is a very reliable, cost-effective 4K DLP Cinema® solution available today. 

“The Australian and New Zealand cinema markets are collectively one of the world’s highest box offices for international releases. The Australian box office grossed about USD1.06 billion* last year and it has been increasing over the last four years. This growth may be partly accounted for by the large scale deployment of digital cinema projectors in the country,” comments Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie Australia. “AIMC is one of the leading cinema events in Australia and we’re glad that we’ve been given this opportunity to present the latest digital cinema technologies to help exhibitors maximize the returns on their investments.”
