Classic Cinemas and CineActive Solutions are proud to announce that they have achieved the exacting DCI specification for light uniformity at Classic Charlestown, located in St Charles, IL. The screen in Auditorium #1 was enlarged by 126% and now delivers images over 53’ across in a wall-to-wall scope presentation.
“We are committed to improving the movie going experience by implementing the latest advances in film projection,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Classic Cinemas. “We delight in delivering a big screen experience that impresses our patrons. We have paid particularly close attention to the latest technologies in sight and sound – DLP 4K, cinema screen shape & surface selection and immersive audio”
Keith Watanabe of CineActive Solutions commented “The remodeled Charlestown auditorium has achieved some of the best light uniformity measures I have ever recorded. The site compares with other premiere cinema venues.” Keith also added “Originally, most digital cinema installs were done in a hurry – only measuring the light level at the screen’s center. But, motion picture specifications describe several other important measures of image quality: light uniformity (shown here), color uniformity and contrast. Qalif products can help guide design choices because they can take these and other measurements quickly.”
Classic Charlestown Auditorium #1 auditorium features the Christie CP4230 4K DLP projection with GDC SX2000AR servers. The remodel added the immersive audio system, DTS:X audio, and a Harkness Perlux screen.
