Hollywood Outdoor Movies Provides Complete Entertainment With JBL VRX Constant Curvature Line Arrays

Providing the greater Los Angeles area with a unique twist on the late night movie, Hollywood Outdoor Movies (HOM) relies on JBL VRX loudspeakers to entertain thousands by displaying feature films on a giant portable outdoor movie screen. With audiences ranging in size from 1,300 to 2,500 people, HOM owner John J. Snyder’s VRX system is using his JBL VRX system to deliver high-impact sound for movie exhibitions throughout southern California.

From Exposition Park and La Cienega Park, to the Fashion Institute of Design and an area of Los Angeles known as “The Cornfields,? HOM arranges day-long events for families that include live music, games, food, costume contests and of course, a feature film on screens up to 100 feet wide.

“We focus on making each screening a large, family-friendly event, rather than just showing a movie for an hour and a half,? stated Snyder. “We try to make it all about the activities and events, where the movie at the end of the night is the icing on the cake.?

The Hollywood-based firm has shown a variety of movies, including Walk the Line, Swingers, Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, Moulin Rouge, The Hangover, Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Back to the Future, Wedding Crashers, Zombie Land, the Shining on Halloween night and the Princess Bride at La Cienega Park, which brought HOM’s largest crowd to date.

Providing equally stunning sound to match the visuals on the screen, Hollywood Outdoor Movies relies on its inventory of JBL VRX 932LAP Constant Curvature line arrays and VRX918SP powered subwoofers, in addition to VERTEC® VT4888 midsize line array elements and VT4880 fullsize arrayable subwoofers.

“The user-friendly and lightweight characteristics of the VRX line arrays allow us to maximize our time and quality during the setup process,? continued Snyder. “With the built-in signal processing and amplifiers, the speakers give us a happy medium between our smaller JBL EON portable loudspeakers and larger, longer-throw VerTec line arrays. This enables us to easily entertain thousands of guests with plenty of audio coverage and distribution, even in large outdoor areas.?

Utilizing inflatable AIRSCREEN technology to provide the highest quality and safety for all outdoor screenings in any weather conditions, HOM can project a film on screens up to 100 feet wide and more than five stories tall, entertaining thousands of fans in a variety of venues including outdoor parking lots, civic parks and other locations.

“With outdoor audio as challenging as it is, the VRX’s provide the perfect solution,? Snyder continued. “Many of our guests have raved about actually feeling the bass in the ground as they watch, which is exactly what we want at these feature film screenings.?
