For the fourth consecutive year Christie Digital Cinema is supporting the movie screenings at the Australian International Movie Convention October 14-17 in the Jupiters Theater.
Through its local partners such as Hoyts and Edge Digital Technology in Australia, Christie has supported the AIMC in the last few years with the latest technologies to provide the best possible digital cinema experience for the attendees.
“As the dominant brand in the digital cinema projection market, Christie has always dedicated itself to providing the most current digital cinema technologies worldwide, including Australia.
Through our local partners in Australia and New Zealand, we have been able to introduce our innovations including the Christie Duo and other visual solutions to the cinema industry in this region. Now, with an Australian-based office, we’re certain that we can work closely with our existing partners to provide even more timely service and support to better serve the needs of the local theaters,” said Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific.
During AIMC, a Christie CP4220 projector will power all movie screenings including the Australian premiere of Captain Phillips.
“The Australian and New Zealand cinema markets are collectively one of the world’s highest box offices for international releases. The Australian box office grossed about USD1.06 billion* last year and it has been increasing over the last four years. This growth may be partly accounted for by the large scale deployment of digital cinema projectors in the country,” said Michael Bosworth, general manager, Christie Australia. “AIMC is one of the leading cinema events in Australia and we’re glad that we’ve been given this opportunity to present the latest digital cinema technologies to help exhibitors maximize the returns on their investments.”
