Later this year National Amusements’ Showcase Cinema de Lux Legacy Place will become the exhibitor’s first all Barco laser multiplex in the United States. Located in Boston, Massachusetts, the theatre will be the Northeast’s first theatre to feature Showcase XPlus – CGS Enlightened, the cinemas’ enhanced giant screen offering with immersive sound, crystal clear laser projection and reserved seating.
“Our strategic partnership with Cinionic is enabling us to deliver a differentiated moviegoer experience at our flagship, Legacy Place,” said Jon Kidder, director of cinema technology, National Amusements. “Our promise to the movie-goer is to showcase movies in the best way possible, and that’s why we chose Series 4, CGS, and to work with Cinionic on this ambitious project.”
The newly upgraded XPlus location is the first to be powered by CGS for the exhibitor, and audiences in the Boston-area. CGS is Barco parent company Cinionic’s advanced dual-laser integrated premium solution with CGS remastered content to deliver a brighter image on today's biggest screens. Cinionic will also upgrade all auditoriums in the multiplex with its Barco Series 4 laser projectors equipped with Alchemy Media Servers. Additionally, to deliver a complete cinematic solution for the next decade, the theatre will receive advanced Cinionic services.
“We are honored to continue our collaboration with National Amusements on this new venture and to be supporting their investment in the next generation of cinema, as we move from xenon to laser,” said Cinionic CEO Wim Buyens. “Today’s announcement builds upon our long-standing relationship and furthers our joint commitment to the moviegoer and the future of exhibition as we enter the renewal wave.”
