FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Taking the successful partnership between Malaysia’s leading cinema chain MBO Cinemas and the world’s largest manufacturer of projection screen surfaces, Harkness Screens, further, the cinema chain has introduced two Premier theatres with an independent Premier Lounge. One is equipped with motion simulation technology and the other caters to children, with a playground integrated within the theatre. The collaboration currently stands at 207 screens, with a seating capacity of over 32,721 seats, providing an ultimate and enthralling cinema experience.
The MBO Big Screen concept at the Starling Mall uses the DP4K-30L flagship laser projector by Barco, on a Clarus XC Harkness Screen measuring 20.5 meters wide and 11.20 meters high and seats 390 guests. This large screen was manufactured in the India factory of Harkness.
Designed to work with all passive 3D systems and approved by 3D manufacturers including RealD, Clarus XC screens create visibly deeper 3D content which is designed to draw in the audience creating a more captivating viewing experience.
The new 4th generation d-smooth coating technology used for Clarus XC screens, allows improved light distribution compared to traditional 3D silver screens. This reduces visible hot-spotting and uniformity is greatly increased, making compliance with 2D industry standards more easily achievable.
Preetham Daniel, Senior Vice President – Asia, Harkness Screens, said, “MBO Cinemas has been known to offer a premier and exclusive cinema experience. Moreover, we share their futuristic plans and views in terms of incorporating newer technology for our clients, audiences and overall cinema industry. With this partnership in place with MBO Cinemas, we are sure together we can advance towards a more rich and enhanced visual experience for our audiences.”
“We are delighted to partner up with Harkness Screens for our future MBO Cinemas projects. We believe Harkness delivers the best technology and design for projection screens, and will help provide the perfect presentation in our new cinemas,” added Mariam El Bacha, Director of Operations, MBO Cinemas.
