Cineplanet has opened its newest cinema in the Mall Aventura in Chiclayo, Peru. For the eight-screen cineplex, Bardan supervised the installation of Barco DP2K-10SLP and DP2K-15CLP laser projectors, Dolby IMS3000 servers, 3D DepthQ and Severtson Screens.
“We are thrilled to have worked with Bardan and to be a part of this fantastic new cinema,” said Dan Maxwell, Severtson’s vice president and chief operating officer. “With our array of cinema screens and the facility’s complement of leading audio/video equipment, customers will have incredible cinematic experiences for many years to come.”
“Not only did Severtson provide the screens to spec and on time, but in order to meet our budgetary constraints, all eight screens were shipped folded for terrific savings,” said Oscar Araya, Bardan sales account executive. “Severtson was terrific to work with and their screens are second-to-none, making them the perfect fit for this project and to solidify Cineplanet’s desire to be the premier theatre in the region.”
The screens range in size from 5.36 meters by 9.67 meters up to 8.34 meters by 15.2 meters. All feature Severtson’s Cine Perf screen materials. One of the eight auditoriums also includes a 7.39-meter by 13.42-meter screen with Severtson’s SeVision 3D GX coating for 3D movie experiences. All eight screens were shipped folded for reduced shipping expenses.
According to Cineplanet, since they ordered high gain screens prior to the pandemic, they were worried about any eventual damage from being stored for such a long time until the installation resumed. Upon inspection at the time of the recent installation, the screens experienced no problems at all with the packaging and coating quality remaining excellent.
Maxwell said, “Our folded shipping method allows for no loss in the screen’s structural nor visual integrity, and now makes international distribution of our cinema screens highly affordable, reducing international shipping costs by up to 70 percent.”
