Kentucky's Crowne Pointe Theatre to feature Christie projectors
Christie cinema projectors will light up the screens for all nine auditoriums when the innovative Crowne Pointe Theatre complex, located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, has its grand opening in October. Installation and project management was accomplished on time and on budget by Integrity Entertainment Systems, LLC (‘Integrity’), a valued Christie business partner.
Highlighting the Christie lineup is the installation of the CP4325-RGB pure laser projector. Featuring Christie’s proprietary RealLaser™ technology, and the first laser projector to power any mainstream Kentucky cinema, the CP4325-RGB provides amazing color, extended contrast capabilities and more than 30,000 hours of optimal brightness performance, to illuminate the giant, 60-foot screen in the 226-seat auditorium, the largest of the nine auditoriums.
Three of the other Crowne Pointe auditoriums can accommodate 108 guests and are showing the latest releases on 50-foot screens powered by Christie CP4220 DLP xenon projectors, while the remaining five, 65-seat auditoriums have 40-foot screens illuminated brilliantly with Christie CP2220 DLP xenon projectors.
Rick Roman, general manager, Crowne Pointe Theatre, said, “Along with bringing the first mainstream laser-projection experience to the state of Kentucky, our new entertainment complex has many other features, including leather recliners in all nine auditoriums, reserved seating, self-serve ticketing and concessions, and is conveniently located just off Interstate 65. All of this contributes to making us the premiere movie theatre complex for the region.”
“We are honored to be chosen by Crowne Point Theatre, to bring this unique cinema experience to Kentucky and adjacent state moviegoers,” said Gary Engvold, president of Integrity.
