Firmdale Hotels, owned by Tim and Kit Kemp, comprises eight boutique hotels in London and one in New York. The group's most recent and ambitious project to date is the London Ham Yard Hotel. The hotel's 188-seat theater hosts a DP4K-32Bx digital cinema projector, which - together with the luxurious setting and the exquisite sound - offers guests the best entertainment experience possible.
Future Projections, a leading provider of specialist moving image technology helped design the digital cinema system at Ham Yard Hotel, just like they had done in three other London-based Firmdale Hotels. Peter Hall, Managing Director at Future Projections, explains: “The group insisted on having a Barco projector at Ham Yard Hotel too. As Ham Yard Theater is the most luxurious and grandest of the four London theaters, the top-of-the-range DP4K-32Bx was the perfect fit.” Hayley Type, Firmdale Events Manager, agrees: “This projector is just what we needed. Be it for movies or alternative content, like the ‘Live at the Albert Hall’ or ‘Pulp’ concerts, the projector delivers truly stunning images in crisp 4K resolution.”
Besides the Barco projector, Future Projections also installed a top-notch, full DMX moving light rig and 48-channel sound with over 65kw of power speakers, to truly immerse the audience in the cinema experience.
