“Oscars® Outdoors” Summer Film Series Shines Bright With Christie DLP Cinema Technology

With its second season underway as of June 15, “Oscars Outdoors,” a ten-weekend summer film series sponsored by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is receiving rave reviews. And integral to the success of its weekend screenings – offering contemporary favorites and classic Hollywood films – is the Christie Solaria® Series CP2230 DLP Cinema® projector.

Capable of projecting 2D and 3D films at high resolutions and in brilliant color, even through the challenges of outdoor cinema projection, the Christie Solaria projector continues to fill a black-backed, 40 foot by 22.5 foot Harkness screen with amazing images for the 500+ families in attendance most weekends. Complementing the visual impact is an impressive L-ACOUSTICS sound system.

“We improved upon our first season by incorporating the Christie® solution, a higher-quality projection,” said Jay Palmer, Theater Operations Engineer with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. “The enhanced functionality combined with superb setup by Christie all figured in a very successful debut.”

Besides the Oscars Outdoors screening series, the open-air theater – on the property of the Academy at 1341 Vine St., between De Longpre and Fountain Avenues and between Vine Street and Ivar Avenue, just south of the ArcLight Cinemas – has been used by both the Academy and community as an event space for special screenings, educational events and other festivities.

“For more than 80 years Christie has been serving the movie industry and filmgoers, so it was natural that, when approached to assist with this worthwhile project, we readily agreed,” said Craig Sholder, VP for Entertainment Services, Christie. “Our technology is leading-edge and our ability to play well with other cinema offerings ensures successful showings.”
