Christie provides digital technology for Lollipop outdoor screening of 'Rio 2'

April 25, 2014

Christie is donating digital-cinema technology and installation services as a Premiere Sponsor of “A Night Under the Stars,” Lollipop Theater Network’s fundraising event on April 26. Installed by Christie’s Managed Services team, the Christie Solaria® Series projector and Christie Vive Audio™ immersive cinema system will provide hospital-bound children the opportunity to experience the magic of movies through the screening of 20th Century Fox’s animated hit, Rio 2.

The event will be staged outdoors at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio lot in Burbank, Calif., and will also feature family-friendly activities, food and beverages, music, and autographs from attending celebrities.


Established in 2001, Lollipop Theater Network has spent the past 12 years working to bring blockbuster movies to children confined to hospitals due to chronic illnesses or life-threatening diseases. Through its collaboration with organizations such as Christie, Lollipop has screened more than 290 films for hospitalized children across 18 states nationwide.

Christie CEO Jack Kline recently became a member of Lolliopop’s board of directors.
 
“Community outreach has always been important to us here at Christie, and the mission and goals of Lollipop Theater Network are not only easy to admire, but are undertakings that we are thrilled to help support,” said Kline. “Our renowned digital-cinema technology will provide Lollipop with the opportunity to give these children an authentic movie theatre experience.”

“As a nonprofit, our organization’s success depends on the generosity of our community, and the immense support Christie has given us has been essential in bringing our vision to life for the upcoming A Night Under the Stars event,” said Evelyn Iocolano, executive director and co-founder of Lollipop Theater Network. “We have always appreciated Jack Kline and Christie’s support of our organization and we welcome Jack as a new board member. It has been great to work with Christie’s Managed Services team, whose superior level of professionalism and technical expertise will help us achieve our ambitious goals on behalf of so many deserving children.”


To “light up” Rio 2 on the big screen, Christie is providing the Christie CP4220 projector, which delivers the brightest image and highest resolution in its class. The Vive Audio setup includes five Christie CDA5 amplifiers, a combination of subwoofers, and a variety of screen channels and surround speakers. As well, the Christie SKA-3D™ digital-cinema processor, which complements Christie Vive Audio, is being provided.

Kline hopes to install permanent equipment in Children’s Hospital of Orange County to provide a more secure and permanent screening room for the hospital’s patients. The facility is one of the many hospitals nationwide with which Lollipop Theater Network works.
