ORLAND PARK, IL — Marcus Theatres has installed a new 70-foot-wide UltraScreen at the Orland Park Cinema. It was unveiled November 26th in time for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

It was installed in a 400-seat auditorium that has been renovated from the ground up.

In addition to the UltraScreen, the hall is using Crown Digital D-Chain amplifiers and JBL ScreenArray speakers.

This is the company’s 12th UltraScreen installation and the second in Illinois

A major component to the ultimate theatrical experience is a wide screen. Yes, the bigger the better is good in this case, too. It would be great if every multiplex had at least ONE auditorium with an Ultra screen or similar.

would be a cool idea, JodarMovieFan. Thanks.

Now all that they need to do is drop their XpanD project and actually invest in REAL-D (I’ve never been to a Marcus theatre but I’ve read terrible reviews about their REAL-D knockoff).
