Christie Provides Digital Projectors and Installation Services as Premiere Sponsor of Lollipop Theater Network

Outdoor Cinema Installation by Christie’s Managed Services Team Brings “The Magic of Movies” to Hospital-Bound Children
Christie®, a global leader in visual display solutions, is pleased to announce its donation of digital cinema technology and installation services as a Premiere Sponsor of A Night Under the Stars, Lollipop Theater Network’s fundraising event on April 26.  

Installed by Christie’s Managed Services team, the Christie Solaria® Series projector and Christie Vive Audio™immersive cinema system will provide hospital-bound children the opportunity to experience the magic of movies through the screening of 20th Century Fox’s animated hit, Rio 2.  The event will be staged outdoors at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio lot in Burbank, California, and will also feature family friendly activities, food and beverages, music, and autographs from attending celebrities.
 
Established in 2001, Lollipop Theater Network has spent the past 12 years working to bring blockbuster movies to children confined to hospitals due to chronic illnesses or life threatening diseases.  Through its collaboration with organizations such as Christie, LOLLIPOP has screened more than 290 films for hospitalized children across 18 states nationwide.
 
Christie CEO Jack Kline has always been impressed by the extraordinary work of Lollipop Theater Network. Inspired to take on a more active role in supporting LOLLIPOP’s cause, he recently became a member of that organization’s Board of Directors.
 
“Community outreach has always been important to us here at Christie, and the mission and goals of Lollipop Theater Network are not only easy to admire, but are undertakings that we are thrilled to help support,” said Kline. “Our renowned digital cinema technology will provide LOLLIPOP with the opportunity to give these children an authentic movie theater experience.”
 
“As a nonprofit, our organization’s success depends on the generosity of our community, and the immense support Christie has given us has been essential in bringing our vision to life for the upcoming A Night Under the Stars event,” said Evelyn Iocolano, executive director and co-founder ofLollipop Theater Network. “We have always appreciated Jack Kline and Christie’s support of our organization and we welcome Jack as a new Board member. It has been great to work with Christie’s Managed Services team, whose superior level of professionalism and technical expertise will help us achieve our ambitious goals on behalf of so many deserving children.”
 
To “light up” Rio 2 on the big screen, Christie is providing the Christie CP4220 projector, which delivers the brightest image and highest resolution in its class, as well as the most robust and cost-effective 4K DLP Cinema® solution. Christie will also provide the innovative Christie Vive Audio™immersive cinema system, which unlocks the full potential of leading DCI digital cinema audio formats. The setup includes five Christie CDA5 amplifiers, a combination of subwoofers, and a variety of screen channels and surround speakers. As well, the Christie SKA-3D™ digital cinema processor, which complements Christie Vive Audio, is being provided.
 
Christie’s Managed Services team will supply complete technical support for this event, expertly installing the digital cinema equipment. They are skillfully compensating for many environmental challenges typical of outdoor settings to create the optimum viewing experience for the audience.
 
“In installing the equipment for this event, we needed to overcome a number of technical and design challenges to ensure safety and deliver vibrant and clear visuals in an unusual, outdoor environment,” said Sean James, vice president, Christie Managed Services. “From mounting and aligning the projectors to safely running power and speaker wires while protecting the equipment from the elements, this event has engaged our team throughout the installation from every angle.”
 
As a new member of Lollipop’s Board of Directors, Kline joined well-known entertainers such as Anne Hathaway and Billy Bush, who are also on the Board. He is hoping to install permanent equipment in Children’s Hospital of Orange County to provide a more secure and permanent screening room for the hospital’s patients. The facility is one of the many hospitals nationwide with which Lollipop Theater Network works.
