Harkness Screens Takes Center Stage At ShoWest’s Premier Presentation Venues

Le Theatre des Arts, Paris Hotel and Jubilee Theatre at Bally’s to Feature Hollywood’s Most Anticipated Films on Spectral 240 3D Screens

LAS VEGAS, NV, MARCH 11, 2010 - Harkness Screens (Booth 1814), the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema applications, will once again be featured at ShoWest’s premier presentation venues, Le Theatre des Arts, Paris Hotel and the Jubilee Theatre, Bally’s Hotel.

With seating capacities of 1,550 and 1,350 respectively, Le Theatre des Arts and the Jubilee Theatre will feature 60 ft. by 25 ft. Harkness Spectral 240 3D screens. In addition, Le Theatre des Arts will also be equipped with a Harkness Perlux 140 for 2D screenings.

“ShoWest is delighted to once again be working with Harkness Screens as one of the official providers of theatrical screens for the 2010 edition of the largest motion picture show worldwide,” says Robert Sunshine, managing director of ShoWest. “We need the best when screening these major Hollywood studio films and Harkness’ quality is unbeatable.”

The Harkness Spectral 240 3D screen is considered by cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the optimum 3D projection surface for systems using polarised light. The Spectral 240 features a high extinction ratio and provides spectacular 3D images. The surface also supports 2D images and can be used successfully in auditoria where 2D and 3D are both shown. The intrinsically high gain (2.4) overcomes light losses in 3D systems. Harkness’ Perlux line of screens provides a choice of gain characteristics, high contrast, bright pictures, generous viewing angles and excellent colour temperature.

ShoWest is the most prestigious and longest running convention and trade show for the cinema exhibition and distribution community. Cinema exhibition professionals come to ShoWest for exciting film screenings of major studio and independent feature films slated for summer release as well as product reel presentations, exciting special events with Hollywood’s hottest stars, educational seminars and to find the latest products, services and technologies at the largest trade show of its kind.

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.

“You can always depend on Harkness and its generosity in supplying screens to ShoWest, which helps us guarantee the film companies a level of professionalism that ensures a fantastic experience in the theatre,” adds Sunshine.

The 2010 edition of ShoWest will be held March 15 – March 18, 2010 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.
