Caribbean Cinemas

Barco and Ballantyne Strong, a digital cinema supplier and systems integrator, are providing a full range of DLP Cinema® projectors to convert Caribbean Cinemas’ film-based theaters to the latest, state-of-the-art digital projection technology, ultimately installing projectors in up to 437 screens. Installations will in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, followed by deployments in seven other islands.

Caribbean Cinemas selected Barco after months of in-depth due diligence and research, resulting in a deal that will expand Barco’s digital cinema footprint far and wide in the West Indies. The cinemas showcase not only first-run theatrical releases and art house films in both English and Spanish, but alternative content as well, including the upcoming 2012-13 Metropolitan Opera season.

“We are pleased to partner with Barco and Ballantyne to elevate movie presentation quality to the highest possible level for our valued patrons,” commented Robert Carrady, President of Caribbean Cinemas. “We chose the Barco projectors because of their superior image quality and excellent reliability, and appreciate the added prestige of having the world’s brightest digital cinema projector – an essential quality for today’s immersive and 3D movies.”

Barco and Ballantyne Strong are installing both its “B” and “C” series projectors, including 3D, to provide the perfect match for every screen throughout Caribbean Cinema’s circuit. Most of the auditoriums will feature Barco’s DP2K-12C for screens up to 12m, all the way up to its largest, world record-winning DP2K-32B.
