Classic Cinemas, one of the most innovative theatre circuits in the United States has renovated the historic La Grange Theatre in La Grange, Illinois into a modern six-screen multiplex with GDC cinema technology.
To enhance the projection image quality, bright laser projectors are installed in all auditoriums, including the Supra-5000 in two of the micro cinemas. All projections are powered by GDC’s SR-1000 IMBs, including Classic Cinemas’ XQ premium large format auditorium featuring high-contrast laser projection and DTS:X for IAB immersive audio so you can see and hear the ultimate moviegoing experience.
DTS:X for IAB technology is designed to transport audiences into a three-dimension of sound immersion by moving sound objects to and through specific locations - in front of, behind, above, and beside the audience - precisely where the creator intended.
“We are 100 percent committed to renovating downtown historic movie palaces by delivering the best possible experience with the latest cinema technologies and amenities but keeping the classic touches,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Classic Cinemas. “As part of our mission to provide our customers an outstanding experience, we chose GDC to bring La Grange up to and beyond industry standards with respect to sight and sound but we absolutely kept the overall historic look and feel.”
Tony Adamson, GDC senior vice president of strategic planning, said Classic Cinemas offers an unparalleled experience like no other and sets them apart from competitors. “For over 20 years, GDC has worked with the industry leaders such as Chris Johnson to provide a wide range of reliable digital cinema solution,” said Adamson. “This commitment by Classic Cinemas proves audiences are the true winners when partners work together to improve the moviegoing experience. We are proud to work with Classic to uphold their over 100-year tradition of putting the customer first.”
