Sony Digital Cinema, a new premium large format (PLF) cinema experience, which includes Sony’s dual laser projection system, has launched at its first location, the Galaxy Theatre Boulevard Mall site in Las Vegas. The new auditorium includes “powerful sound” and luxury reclining seats, and the auditorium’s high-contrast projection systems promise to bring filmmakers’ stories and vision to life “with a vibrancy that matches their original intent.”
The auditorium will now constitute the largest in the Las Vegas market, which Sony says will further enhance Galaxy’s recognition as the Best Movie Theater in Las Vegas, according to Las Vegas Weekly and Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“This location in Las Vegas is the first in what will be a nationwide rollout of Sony Digital Cinema experiences, which will drive audiences to the movies,” said Bob Raposo, head of cinema at Sony Electronics. “Sony has the capability and tools to be involved in every aspect of a film, from capture, workflow and post-production, to film production and distribution, and experiential theater solutions. We are uniquely positioned to understand and develop products that directly impact and elevate cinemas and their audiences.”
“We strategically chose Las Vegas, a city synonymous with world-class entertainment, for the launch of our new Sony Digital Cinema auditorium at Galaxy Theatres,” explained Rafe Cohen, president of Galaxy Theatres. “We strive to exceed customers’ expectations of a best-in-class theatrical destination, from the concessions and the seating to the technology. We turned to Sony, a company known for quality and excellence, to create a first of its kind Sony Digital Cinema auditorium that is sure to make our Boulevard Mall location a destination for those seeking the best cinematic experience on every level.”
Sony has been working with both large, independent and arthouse theater chains over the past ten years to provide products, services and support that “re-invent” the movie-going experience, and the company’s portfolio includes 4K, laser, lamp, HDR, 2D and 3D projection technology options. Sony says their solutions provide the flexibility requested by theaters, and the superb image quality and natural color reproduction that enhances audience engagement.
