Nite Owl Theater Selects CES+ & Cinionic to Deliver A Laser Drive-In Cinema in the Heart of Miami

Harnessing the leading Barco Series 4 for a brighter way to watch from your car
Nite Owl Theater brings a laser-powered drive-in cinema experience to the heart of Miami with Laser Projection from Cinionic, the Barco, CGS, and ALPD cinema joint venture. Working with CES+, the Nite Owl Theater deployed state-of-the-art 4K RGB laser Barco Series 4 projection in a mobile airstream RV, upgrading the drive-in location from 35mm to the next generation of digital presentation technology.

The Knight Foundation-backed Nite Owl Driven-In offers movie aficionados in the Miami area a way to reconnect with the big screen from the safety of their car. Featuring a 53-foot screen, the innovative theater concept can accommodate between 65-70 cars per screening. The 4K laser projection provided by Barco’s award-winning Series 4 model ensures theater guests will enjoy enhanced visual experiences, with brighter higher quality images, while maintaining social distance in the new venue.

“Taking 4K RGB Laser projection outdoors in Miami was going to be a challenge. My dream has always been to work with Barco and Harkness Screens on a massive Drive-In Theater and to bring Art-House Cinema quality deep in the heart of downtown,” said Nite Owl founder, Nayib Estefan. “Working with CES+ and Airstream Trailers, we were able to seamlessly outfit a 22-foot Airstream Bambi with the gnarliest 4K DCP laser rig Miami has ever seen. Finally — the Nite Owl can play all the 4K remasters of classic films, and new content we have never been able to access. Which is exciting after having previously operated a strictly 35MM repertory theater. Anyone that has been to a Nite Owl Drive-In show will tell you: this is the best that Cinema has looked, ever.”

As audiences around the world continue to crave community entertainment experiences, there has been a renewed interest in drive-in and theater concepts. The exceptionally bright laser cinema technology from Cinionic makes bringing exceptional cinema presentation in outdoor settings possible like never before, with high brightness and a reduced environmental impact.

"It was a pleasure to work with Nayib Estefan to provide a unique experience unlike anything the city of Miami has ever seen,” said Edward Younger, USA Internal Sales at CES+. “I am excited to have worked with our new partner Nite Owl, installing the latest laser technology from Cinionic, the Barco SP4K-40 delivering 40,000 lumens on a 53 ft outdoor screen with FM stereo sound. This is a great opportunity for Miamians to enjoy a great movie safely outdoors conveniently located in art district of downtown Miami."

“People miss the movies, and together with CES+, we delivered solutions to face the times we live in,” commented Wim Buyens, Cinionic CEO. “Our shared passion and ingenuity allow us to bring larger than life stories to audiences in Miami and around the world. We are proud to illuminate giant screens for the brightest drive-in experience.” 

Over 200 global exhibitors today turn to Cinionic’s leading portfolio of laser technology for ways to deliver unparalleled cinematic experiences for their guests, with more than 20,000 laser units currently in the field. In 2019, Cinionic introduced Barco Series 4 as part of its leading portfolio of laser projectors. The stand-out Series 4 laser projection platform delivers a new visual standard in cinema with vivid colors, high uniformity, and the patented Barco AIM (Active Image Management)™, facilitating unparalleled movie presentations for theater guests.
