Systems integrator CES+ recently worked with Cinema Lab, the new operators of The Village Cinemas at South Orange Performing Arts Center in New Jersey, to reopen the center’s five-screen movie theatre.
“CES+ helped facilitate SOPAC’s reopening plan by conducting a site survey and also oversaw equipping the theatre, including set-up and operation,” said Henry Morales, CES+ account manager. “Beyond the installation service, CES+ will continue to provide technical support services through the NOC and the CIELO platform which combines smart alerts, 24/7 certified technicians, and hands-on customer service.”
The Village at SOPAC offers five screens with plush seating, an updated lobby lounge space, and a technology-first atmosphere where guests can manage their tickets, pre-order concessions, and keep up to date on all events, theater programming, and membership information. The theatre features both a traditional and an expanded hot and cold menu for guest convenience and enjoyment.
“We are excited that phase I of the cinema is now open and we are able to share the magic of going to the movies,” said Brandon Jones, Cinema Lab’s co-founder and CMO. “Since November 2020, the community has been without a movie theatre, and Cinema Lab, together with the SOPAC team supported by CES+, worked to bring back major summer blockbusters to South Orange.”
“It’s been a pleasure to work on this project.” added Morales. “I’m so enthusiastic about SOPAC’s reopening, and we are thankful to Brandon Jones and Luke Parker Bowles, who trusted us to make this project a reality. It’s been great to be part of it.”
