Harkness Screens Perlux 220 Makes India Debut

Urvashi Cinema in Bangalore Becomes Country’s First Single Screen 3D Digital Equipped Theatre

BANGALORE, INDIA – Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of projection screens for cinema applications, is debuting its Perlux 220 3D screen in India with the recent install at the Urvashi Cinema in Bangalore.

Featuring a 56-foot by 28-foot Perlux 220, Urvashi is the first 3D digital equipped single screen cinema in India. With a seating capacity of 1,100, including a balcony of 464 seats, Urvashi has some 30 3D movies lined up over the next 12-18 months.

“With the explosion of blockbuster movies coming out in 3D and digital 2D, it was essential for us to equip our cinema with a screening system that could provide our patrons with all of the action and excitement of 3D,” says Amit Gowda, president of Urvashi. “Harkness’ Perlux 220 provides incredible images that allow our customers who spend their hard earned money to live the entertainment.”

In addition to the Perlux 220, the 3D system that Gowda installed at Urvashi includes Christie projection, a Qube XPD server solution and the XpanD 3D system.

Harkness Perlux screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors worldwide to be the premier gain projection surface. The Perlux line of screens provides a choice of gain characteristics, high contrast, bright pictures, generous viewing angles and excellent colour temperature. The Perlux 180 and 220 high gain screens are perfect companions for digital 3D systems that use non-polarised light, such as XpanD 3D and Dolby 3D.
