Odeon Multicines Girona Becomes Spain’s Second Cinema to Screen ‘Star Wars’ with Christie’s “Fantastic” 6P Laser Projection System in 3D, Offering Up to 120,000 Lumens

Odeon Multicines Girona is the second film theatre in Spain – following La Maquinista in Barcelona – to offer Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 3D using a Christie® dual-head 6-Primary (6P) laser projection system. This multiscreen complex joins a growing band worldwide to offer Christie 6P laser projections, the solution of choice for the world’s best film theatres.  Sala 4 at the multiscreen complex, which already had Dolby Atmos® sound, was equipped for the occasion with the impressive Christie CP42LH HFR 3DLP® 4K RGB laser projector, an ultra-bright colorful solution for big screens.
 
Luis Carlos Millán López, owner of Odeon Multicines, said, “We are bowled over by the Christie 6P laser projection technology. It is giving our audiences a unique cinema experience. We believe that this is the future of 3D film projection and that it will be a key factor in boosting 3D box office returns around the world.”
 
Carmen Millán, manager of Odeon Multicines Girona, pointed out that, “The quality and realism of the 3D with this system are absolutely fantastic. And the light on the screen is equally spectacular. So much so, that a few days ago, just before the beginning of the movie, we thought that we had forgotten to dim the lights in the theatre, and when we went to turn them off we realised that the light was coming from the screen itself.”
 
Anchored by the Christie Freedom® laser lighting system, the CP42LH reproduces a color spectrum that exceeds DCI P3 specifications and matches the Rec. 2020 color space, making it the most advanced RGB laser cinema projection system available on the market.
 
Located in Espai Gironès, a huge shopping centre in Salt, a town just outside Girona, Multicines Odeon has ten screens with a total capacity of 1,700. Seating 277 people, Sala 4, where the dual-head Christie system has been installed, is the theatre’s main screen, measuring 14.3 metres wide and 6.1 high and is also equipped with Dolby Atmos sound.
 
System Shines
The system installed in this theatre includes two 4K Christie CP42LH laser projection heads with integrated media block (IMB) connected via fibre optic to two racks, each one with six RGB laser modules that provide a total of 60,000 lumens –double what current digital projectors with lamps are able to offer.
 
The scalability of the platform allows up to 12 modules per rack. And with each laser module generating 5,000 lumens of light, a potential of up to 60,000 lumens per rack, and a total of 120,000 lumens is possible. The system, designed to achieve over 14 foot lamberts in 3D screens, uses Dolby® 3D glasses specifically engineered to exactly match the 6 primary laser light wavelengths, thus yielding very high light efficiency.
 
The 6P laser projection screening of Star Wars at Odeon Girona has been the talk of this town and its 97,000 inhabitants: “It was widely reported in the local media, and the three screenings per day are packing in the public,” Millán said. “You can hear people coming out saying that they haven’t seen anything like it. The word of mouth alone is bringing in the crowds. And that is a source of pride for us, because the audiences here in Girona are very demanding and appreciate the high quality,” she added.
 
Odeon Multicines Girona is now the second film theatre in Spain to offer Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a dual-head 6P laser projection system, following in the footsteps of Dolby Cinema La Maquinista in Barcelona which is equipped with the Dolby Vision projection system. Christie worked closely with Dolby in co-developing the new proprietary HDR and wider color gamut technology that leverages customized, high-frame-rate (HFR) capable Christie 4K laser projection heads to deliver the unparalleled visual excellence of Dolby Vision.
 
Marcos Fernández, Christie director for Spain and Portugal, added: “Our 6P laser architecture is a true revolution for the industry, affording incredible brightness, a reinforced color spectrum and an extraordinary contrast ratio, radically improving the efficiency of 3D projection systems. It is the perfect option for high-end screens looking to set themselves apart from the competition and to offer their audiences a truly unforgettable cinema experience.”
