Landmark Cinemas has selected Christie Solaria Series 4K-ready digital cinema projectors for installation in six multiplexes across Western Canada.  Landmark Cinemas is Canada’s largest regional movie exhibition circuit headquartered in Calgary Alberta.  Privately owned and operated since 1965 Landmark Cinemas currently operates 31 cinema complexes with a combined total of 108 screens in 27 locations throughout western Canada and the Yukon. The partners that make up the ownership group have strong roots to film exhibition. “Every Landmark Cinemas theatre offers its customers the very best in entertainment value. We strive to make the theatre-going experience the best possible ” says Neil Campbell COO and partner Landmark Cinemas of Canada. “3D has become an enormous game changer that has revived the exhibition industry. Now with the additional Christie projectors we can maximize our 8- and 10-screen complexes by doubling up our 3D presentations.” Campbell noted that he has been working with Christie for nearly three years and the relationship has grown every year. “We consider Christie our partner and part of our family.  Landmark Cinemas selected Christie based on the quality of its products and the dedication of the Christie team. The key to purchasing the Christie Solaria Series for our 3D presentations was the fact that they are 4K-ready.  In addition they offer the best options in the industry at the lowest cost of ownership. Christie has proven to us that they can deliver whatever we need when we need it ” Campbell says. Preparing for the future Landmark Cinemas has plans for three new multiplexes to be built in Western Canada in 2011. “These new theatres will be 100 percent digital and 100 percent Christie digital projectors ” Campbell says.
