Cypress, Calif. USA — Christie® strikes gold again, with Walt Disney Studios selecting the acclaimed Christie Solaria™ Series CP2230 projectors to screen the highly anticipated World Premiere of Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” in Disney Digital 3D™. The studio’s first 3D outdoor premiere took place at Disneyland® Park in Anaheim May 7, with Disney donating 100 percent of the proceeds from this star-studded event to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, of which they are a long-time supporter.

Heralded by elite filmmakers and supported by major Hollywood studios, the Christie Solaria Series projectors are said to provide unmatched contrast and stunning colors necessary to deliver a razor-sharp Disney Digital 3D™ viewing experience. For the premiere, powerful Solaria CP2230 projectors will illuminate the 90’ by 36’ screen from a distance of up to 190 feet.

“Christie has been involved in many of our premiere events,” said Lylle Breier, senior vice president, Worldwide Special Events, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. “When we want to wow our World Premiere audiences with a blockbuster feature presentation, we know we can count on Christie to deliver the best and brightest digital cinema viewing experience available today.”

“Christie is proud to play an integral role in many exciting Disney premieres. Our successes with Disney include the groundbreaking animated feature, ‘Toy Story,’ the first movie created digitally and screened digitally, on a Christie projector,” said Craig Sholder, vice president of Christie Entertainment Solutions.

All projectors in the Christie Solaria Series exceed Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) specifications—the universally recognized standard in the industry that every manufacturer must meet. They feature modular architecture for improved serviceability and ease of maintenance, with up to 25 percent lower cost of operation than competing technologies.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” roars to the screen in brilliant Disney Digital 3D™. It offers the fun, adventure and humor that are hallmarks of the hit franchise, with Johnny Depp returning as the inimitable Captain Jack Sparrow.
