Moving Image Technologies has been awarded a $1.6 million contract from Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to provide equipment and furnishings for the new Alamo Rhode Island Avenue location in Washington, D.C.
The contract represents MIT’s first major order following construction delays throughout the cinema industry due to the pandemic. As part of the agreement with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, MIT will provide and install all projection and sound equipment for a new nine-screen state-of-the-art cinema, which is currently scheduled to open in fall 2021.
The equipment will include a full complement of MIT manufactured products—bases, dimmers, automations, power filtering and distribution electronics. In connection with this project, MIT also is providing, integrating and installing projection and audio cinema products from Barco, Dolby, QSC and GDC, along with auditorium interior finishes, including screens, drapery, carpeting and aisle lighting.
Joseph Edwards, owner and Alamo franchisee said, “MIT has been a long-time, trusted partner of ours, having furnished and installed equipment at our other sites in Charlottesville, Loudoun and Woodbridge. It’s great to have a quality one-stop-shop for the auditorium and booth fixturing.”
