The Cinema Star, the new multiplex located in the Kvartal West multipurpose center on Aminyevskoye Shosse in Moscow, is the first Dolby Atmos cinema to also feature the Christie CP4440-RGB digital cinema projector RealLaser illumination technology.
“Asia Cinema has fitted more than 1,000 sites, but this project was a particularly great experience for me,” said Anna Miroshnichenko, a project manager for systems integrator Asia Cinema. “Each of the multiplex’s six screens features multichannel Dolby Atmos sound combined with Christie projection equipment. Screen 1 was equipped with a Christie CP4440-RGB 4K RGB laser projector. RGB laser technology offers viewers true-to-life images with incredible brightness and clarity. It also helps theatre operators to reduce their electricity cost.”
“Cinema Star’s new multiplex is a great example of how cinemas can install both state-of-the art equipment like Christie RGB pure laser illumination for a premium customer experience as well as Christie xenon lamp-based projectors, proven for their reliability and value to exhibitors,” said Brian Claypool, executive vice president, Cinema, at Christie.
“We chose Christie projectors for this theatre. We have been working with the company for years, and have found it to be an excellent manufacturer,” said Leonid Yakovlev, technical director of the Cinema Star chain. “Every consideration was made to ensure cinemagoers’ comfort in all 616 seats.
“From Christie’s wide range of technology, we opted for digital projectors for our screens. When compared to cinema projectors with similar specifications from other manufacturers, Christie projectors stand out for their ease of use, reliability and maintainability,” said Yury Mishin, chief equipment engineer at Cinema Star. “I would also note the exceptional quality of the xenon lamps. We reviewed the market for cinema projectors with laser illumination and concluded that there were simply no other contenders in the RGB lighting system segment. We hope to use these projectors for many years to come, and that they prove to be a cost-effective choice.”
“Cinema Star is a longstanding Christie partner, and two thirds of the chain’s screens are already equipped with our projectors,” said Anna Vostretsova, Christie’s business development manager in Russia. “We have been collaborating for nearly a decade now, and we are delighted that Cinema Star has chosen Christie equipment and our flagship СP4440-RGB projector with RealLaser illumination technology for its new screen,”
The multiplex in Kvartal West on Aminyevskoye Shosse is the chain’s thirtieth theatre.
