Cinema innovators expand Barco projection footprint to elevate movie showings in the country
Building on a strong showing at CinemaCon and a series of new global cinema deployments, Cinionic now celebrates a new partnership with system integrator Cine Project and the first laser-illuminated theater in Germany!
The alliance opens up significant opportunities for Cinionic, the Barco Cinema joint venture, to grow its digital cinema footprint in Germany. Offering a vast array of entertainment experiences – from the cinema lobby to auditoriums and beyond – Cinionic will empower the country’s movie exhibitors to deliver amazing “wow” experiences for a new generation.
“We are honored to bring the brilliance of Barco laser projection to immerse moviegoers in the ultimate cinema experience. Forward-thinking exhibitors who embrace these technologies can enjoy all the benefits of premium cinema, from higher ticket revenues to happy customers,” comments Franz Kober, founder of Cine Project Kinodesign & AV-Technik GmbH.
Premium Entertainment München GmbH, CEO Hans-Joachim Flebbe, is the first to open an all-laser cinema in Germany, known as ARRI Astor Cinema Lounge, featuring both Barco Flagship and Smart Laser projectors. The cinema will rely on the Barco 6P RGB Laser to show flawless 3D movies. Well-known for its premium cinema lounges all over Germany, Premium Entertainment is also renovating and building new complexes in Munich, Hamburg and Frankfurt.
“Our philosophy is to offer our guests premium cinema entertainment featuring luxurious amenities. The outstanding image quality of the Barco projectors allows us to make their moviegoing experience a memorable occasion every time.”
