Christie cinema projectors and Christie Vive Audio™ systems are powering the Moviehouse & Eatery theatre complex, which opened earlier this year in the Lantana Place district of Austin, Texas.

Christie business partner Entertainment Supply & Technologies (ES&T) provided a one-stop solution for the ten theatre auditoriums, which include six Christie Solaria® Series CP2220 and four Christie Solaria Series CP2215 digital projectors. The projection is augmented by Christie Vive Audio. Dolby CP-750 sound processors were included to complement the Vive systems.

“The Christie CP2220 and CP2215 cinema projectors deliver impressive visuals in a cost-effective, compact solution, and are easy to install and service,” said Barney Bailey, president and CEO of ES&T. “As well, Christie is a pleasure to deal with and that combined with their reliable technology, proven in tens of thousands of cinemas worldwide, make them our firm’s go-to choice for discerning customers such as the Moviehouse & Eatery.”

Bailey noted that ES&T has been a supply partner for Moviehouse & Eatery since the chain launched in 2012.  “We have enjoyed a very productive working relationship with this client in the past, but this was an even more exciting and challenging project because it is first time we installed a complete Christie digital projection and Vive sound system package for a customer.”

”We continue to look for ways to make the movies better for our guests. Just as our culinary team strives daily to make improvements to our scratch prepared menu, we are constantly thinking of how to further enhance the movie experience and we’re very happy with how Christie’s Solaria projectors in conjunction with Vive Audio came together in this, our fifth location,” said Chance Robertson, executive VP at Moviehouse & Eatery.  “We plan to open more Moviehouse & Eatery locations in the near future and look forward to our continued partnership with Christie and Entertainment Supply & Technologies.”

“Christie and ES&T are very privileged to have such a close, ongoing relationship with Moviehouse & Eatery,” said Scott McCallum, Christie’s account manager, cinema. “The Lantana Place complex is an excellent example of the latest moviegoing and dining experience, which is successfully competing for a share of today’s entertainment dollars.  For patrons looking to catch dinner and a movie, Moviehouse & Eatery Lantana dine-in theatres feature plush recliners and a dedicated wait staff. A full-service bar in the lobby also gives everyone a place to gather before enjoying dinner and a show, and serves up nightcaps to end the evening.”
