When the innovative Crowne Pointe Theatre complex in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, has its grand opening in October, all nine auditoriums will feature Christie projectors. Integrity Entertainment Systems supervised the installation and project management. Highlighting the installation is the Christie CP4325-RGB pure laser projector in the giant, 60-foot screen in the 226-seat auditorium, the largest of the nine auditoriums.
Three of the other Crowne Pointe auditoriums have 50-foot screens, 108 seats with Christie CP4220 DLP xenon projectors. The remaining five, 65-seat auditoriums have 40-foot screens illuminated by 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.”
The Crowne Pointe Theatre is on schedule for hosting the opening gala in October, serving as the crown jewel of cinemas in the region, said Roman. “We are combining a superior facility, great customer service and innovative promotional programs, and believe this will result in more people going to see more movies more often.”
“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.
“We choose Christie for the overwhelming majority of our installations, as do our exhibition customers,” added Engvold. “Christie provides the brightest, highest-quality images for cinema and alternative content projections, with practically no downtime during conversions, and superior after-sale service and support. With the CP4325-RGB laser projector, Christie has asserted its leadership again, building on the workhorses that are their xenon offerings, including the CP4220 and CP2220 projection solutions in use at Crowne Pointe.”
“Christie is a great business partner and a global leader in projection technology,” said Roman. “Their reputation for delivering product excellence, great after-sales service, and ongoing customer support were key factors in helping us provide moviegoers with a great theatre experience.”
