ShoWest’s Premier Presentation Venue Turns To Harkness Screens

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema applications, has been selected as the screen supplier of choice for Le Theatre des Arts, Paris Hotel at ShoWest 2009.

With a seating capacity of 1,550, Le Theatre des Arts will feature a 25-foot by 60-foot Matt Plus Harkness screen as well as a 46-foot by 20-foot Spectral 240 3D Harkness screen. The screens will be changed out depending on whether the presentation calls for a 2D or 3D screen.

Harkness Matt Plus screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors worldwide to be the best matt white projection surface. The flexible PVC-based material is manufactured to a unique formulation and specification providing wide viewing angles, high contrast, bright pictures and excellent color temperature. Harkness’ Spectral 240 3D is also considered to be the optimum 3D projection surface for systems using polarized light.

“We are proud to once again be using Harkness Screens inside Le Theatre des Arts,” says Mitch Neuhauser, co-managing director of ShoWest. “Le Theatre des Arts, is the premier venue for Hollywood studios to showcase their upcoming projects during this year’s ShoWest convention. Whether showing feature length films or respective product presentations to the world wide exhibition community, it is essential that we use top of the line equipment in the theatre and Harkness has consistently provided us with outstanding screens.”

ShoWest is the largest annual convention for the motion picture industry. It is the only international gathering devoted exclusively to the movie business and the single largest international gathering of motion picture professionals and theatre owners in the world.

“We have been working with Harkness for all of our shows worldwide for the past 20 years. It has been a great relationship and association,” adds Neuhauser. “Harkness has been incredibly accommodating in supporting all of our industry events and the motion picture industry. They are very supportive in providing new screens every year.”

The 2009 edition of ShoWest will be held March 30 – April 2, 2009 at Bally’s and Paris, Las Vegas and is expected to draw more than 5,000 members of the motion picture industry. Each year, ShoWest attracts delegates from more than 50 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
