Southern Theatres' Movie Tavern 8 installs Christie Vive Audio and Solaria projectors

Aug 4, 2014

Southern Theatres completed its second “all Christie” entertainment complex, at the new Southern Theatres Movie Tavern 8 in Covington, Louisiana. The eight-screen cinema eatery is powered exclusively by Christie Solaria® Series projectors and Christie Vive Audio™ cinema systems, comprised of Christie’s line-array wall and ceiling surround speakers, purposely crafted and built for the cinema environment.

Christie’s Professional Services team provided complete design, integration and installation services and will continue to provide 24/7 remote monitoring and ongoing technical support through Christie’s Network Operations Center (NOC).

The new complex includes a Movie Tavern Xtreme (MT-X), an enhanced entertainment auditorium featuring a three-story silver screen, 2D and RealD 3D capability, Christie 4K DLP Cinema® projection, the Dolby Atmos™ audio format, and a Christie Vive Audio immersive cinema system. The setups feature the LA5S, LA3C and LA3S for wall and ceiling surrounds, the LA3 for screen channels, and the S215 subwoofer.


The remaining seven auditoriums are configured for the Dolby 7.1 audio format and feature the LA1 and LA3 configuration for screen channels and the LS3S for wall surrounds. They are also equipped with Christie CP2215, CP2220, and CP2230 DLP Cinema projectors.



“We’re excited to continue to bring the latest developments in cinema projection and audio technology to our patrons at the Movie Tavern 8 in Covington. The exclusive use of Christie digital projection was never in doubt, but we’ve also chosen to equip every auditorium with Christie Vive Audio because we believe its revolutionary speaker design provides the benefit of improved sound coverage to every seat in the house,” said Danny DiGiacomo, director of marketing at Southern Theatres.

Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darker, less action-packed first half of the final installment of the popular franchise moves from arenas to rubble aplenty as Jennifer Lawrence’s super-heroine is called upon to serve her beleaguered and much-destroyed nation as propaganda instrument and leader. Fans of the books and previous two films get a less flashy palette here, but the engaging characters and strong story return to stir interest for the scheduled November 2015 finale. More »
