Arclight Cinemas Brings the Dome into A New Galaxy of Viewing

ArcLight Announces an incredible cinematic viewing experience for guests starting with “Star Wars” release in the historic Cinerama Dome
ArcLight Cinemas, a premiere movie-going destination is excited to announce their collaboration with Christie® and Dolby® to bring the most advanced movie-viewing experience possible for ArcLight guests at the legendary Cinerama Dome in time for the most anticipated movie experience of the year“Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”Beginning this Thursday, December 17th, visitors to The Dome will be fully immersed in both cinematic history and new technology.
 
“We are always looking for the most innovative and immersive experience for our guests and feel the timing is perfect to bring the laser viewing experience to The Dome, which has such an iconic cinema history in Hollywood,” states Gretchen McCourt, Executive Vice President, ArcLight Cinemas.
 
The Dome has been  upgraded with dual-head Christie 6P laser projectors and Dolby® 3D, which can project more than double the light of an average 3D projection system and will enable guests to view the nuances of the film and thoroughly enjoy the brilliance of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and future releases. Christie® extends the boundaries of 3D cinema with dramatically increased 3D light levels combined with Dolby® 3D advanced color separation technology. The Dome is already one of the largest screens in the nation and with the projection upgrade, it will be one of the largest screens with Christie laser projection.
 
“For more than 50 years, the iconic Cinerama Dome has been pushing the technological boundaries of movie presentations, and with the installation of the groundbreaking Christie 6-Primary (6P) dual-head laser projection system, ArcLight Cinemas is once again ensuring that their patrons have a most memorable movie-going experience,” said George Scheckel, senior director, Americas, for Christie.  “We congratulate ArcLight on their choice, which continues our decade-long relationship that has seen Christie install scores of projectors in the chain’s theater throughout the United States.”
 
Dolby® 3D uses advanced color separation technology instead of the polarization technology. That makes it ideally suited for next generation laser projectors, which generate more light and create brighter images than bulb projectors. Dolby® 3D uses the laser’s native color light sources (red, green, blue) so no filters or light re-cycling is required.
