Cypress, California (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

Christie® Solaria® Series 2K/4K Projectors and Christie Vive Audio™ cinema sound systems are powering 12 of the 13 screens at the new Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres in Vineyard, Utah, which held its grand opening ceremonies on March 13. Installed by Christie partner CLACO Equipment & Services, the new Megaplex is an integral part of an ongoing revitalization of the former Geneva Steel Site property. It combines the visually stunning images of Christie 2K/4K projectors with the audio excellence of Dolby technology and the Christie Vive Audio system, the first to be installed in Utah.

Ten of the Christie-powered auditoriums feature Dolby Surround 7.1; the other two are configured to meet Dolby Atmos® sound specifications. They deliver a breathtaking, immersive experience with sound that is marked by astonishing clarity, richness, detail, and depth.

Founded by Utah Jazz owner Larry H. and Gail Miller, Megaplex Theatres is among the top grossing theatre chains in the United States. The new location in Utah marks the 18th theatre complex to be opened by Miller. Hailed by community leaders as a vital entertainment destination, the theatre has created approximately 100 new jobs and is attracting additional retail, entertainment, and residential growth in the region.

“We consider ourselves a part of the community and strive to bring quality entertainment to all our guests,” said Jeff Whipple, vice president, Advertising, Marketing, and Public Relations for Megaplex Theatres. “CLACO Equipment helped us deliver the best movie-viewing experience available today, and their choice of Christie Solaria projectors, Christie Vive Audio components and Dolby technology ensures every patron in every seat enjoys the ultimate visual experience and premium, immersive sound.”

The new Megaplex Theatres accommodates approximately 3,000 guests. It includes amenities such as motion seats that move in synch with the movie, luxury lounge, premium seating, and a full-service food court. Christie auditoriums feature High Frame Rate (HFR) and four auditoriums feature 3D projection systems for stunning, life-like images. They also feature Christie Vive speakers configured to the highest standards to meet Dolby specifications for a life-like audio experience. Dolby Atmos/Christie Vive auditoriums feature Christie Vive LA3 and LA4 screen channels with LA4S wall surrounds, and LA3C ceiling speakers. Dolby Surround 7.1 auditoriums are wired with Christie Vive LA1 and LA3 screen channels with LS3S wall surrounds.

“We worked with Megaplex Theatres from the design stage to the final installation, and Christie was always our first choice for digital cinema,” said Eric Butterworth, sales manager for CLACO Equipment & Services. “We have installed hundreds of Christie projectors and stood behind the brand for more than 30 years because all of their products are backed by expert customer service. The introduction of Christie Vive and the amplifier’s five-year warranty were a game changer for us. The warranty, especially, is the best in the industry and attests to the confidence that Christie has in the reliability of their products.”

“We are pleased that CLACO and Megaplex Theatres have selected Christie Solaria 2K/4K digital cinema projectors and Christie Vive Audio, combined with the superior audio experience of Dolby, to ensure all of their guests enjoy the highest quality movie-going experience,” said Patrick Artiaga, director, Business Development, Audio, Christie. “We are proud to be part of the Megaplex Theatres family, because they play a prominent role in their community, offering exceptional entertainment and a great value.”
