Christie DLP Cinema Projector to Digitally Screen Star Wars Saga in its Entirety at 30th Anniversary Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles

Christie, a global leader in visual solutions for entertainment, business and industry, brings the force of cutting edge Digital Cinema technology to the biggest Star Wars party ever – Celebration IV – with the first-ever back-to-back, six-episode Saga marathon in the U.S. on Wednesday, May 23.

The state-of-the-art digital screening of all six Star Wars episodes on the world’s most popular DLP Cinema projector, the Christie CP2000, is one of the highlights of the massive event, which brings together tens of thousands of Star Wars fans from around the world.

The May 23-24 screening marks the first time all Star Wars episodes have been theatrically presented in story order (from Episode I to Episode VI), and is expected to draw thousands of enthusiastic fans. “Star Wars Celebration IV” is produced by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Gen Con LLC., and officially opens to the public on Friday, May 25, following a one-day “preview” for members of the Official Star Wars Fan Club.

The excitement-filled, star-studded Celebration IV will take over the entire Los Angeles Convention Center and feature live entertainment and scores of celebrities from all six movies, including favorites like Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, and Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO. There will also be special presentations that preview upcoming Star Wars projects; special exhibits; exclusive merchandise sold at a 24-hour-a-day store; pop-culture tributes; immersive events; costume contests; and scores of additional activities.

“Star Wars is more than a movie. It is a genuine cultural phenomenon that continues to intrigue and captivate new generations of fans around the world. Digital technology has had a profound influence upon the look of the film, its evolution and success,” says Mike Blanchard, post-production supervisor for Lucasfilm Ltd. “The introduction of Digital Cinema has helped bring to audiences everywhere a more accurate rendition of George Lucas’ original vision, and from the beginning, the Christie CP2000 DLP Cinema projector has been our projector of choice.”

Craig Sholder, vice-president of Entertainment Solutions at Christie comments, “The Christie 2K DLP Cinema projector played a major role in launching Lucas’ final Star Wars movie, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, with digital premieres that attracted record audiences around the world. At Star Wars Celebration IV, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Christie continue their long and productive relationship, with the Christie CP2000 series offering the most pristine, visually stunning images fans have ever seen.”

Servicing the largest Digital Cinema deployment in the world, Christie’s Managed Services team will set up and ensure that all six digital screenings play smoothly. Sean James, vice president of Managed Services at Christie remarks, “Our renowned Christie Managed Services technicians will be on hand throughout the 17- hour marathon to ensure this historic event is everything Star Wars fans have come to expect from the world’s most famous cinematic saga.”

With more than 150 technicians, Christie Managed Services is the largest cinema tech service organization in the U.S. dedicated to servicing over 5,000 screens at 585 sites across 40 states.
