2014 CineMAX Nitra Theater update

Without announcing any technical details, the CineMAX chain replaced the 3D system in its Nitra site on 5th December 2013. According to the report, which was published at http://cine-max.sk/590/akcie/novy-3d-system-v-cinemax-nitra, besides the system ticket prices also changed. A 3D-standard ticket price declined from 7.30 euros to the current 6.80 euros (about $ 9.20). The visitor, however, will need to purchase passive 3D glasses for 1 euro (about $ 1.35 in December 2013). 3D-projection technology thus changed from active to passive. It seems like CineMAX plans to change 3D systems step by step in all its sites across Slovak Republic.

According to the operations manager of the theater, CineMAX installed a MasterImage MI-WAVE3D 3D-system, which uses an automated liquid crystal polarization modulator. This change can make a big transition from active to passive 3D-system, when in Slovakia now Dolby 3D and XpanD are dominating. They both use active glasses. The Korean company MasterImage now controls the most lucrative market of the capital city Bratislava, when cooperating with the Cinema City chain in its sites AuPark, Eurovea and Polus City Center.

Other news on the theater include that a competitive cinema in the shopping center Mlyny will open within the next two years. It should have five screens and will be a part of the mall extension. Initially a ten-store office tower had to be built there. The opening of a competitive theater will be a difficult challenge for CineMAX Nitra, whereas in the Mlyny shopping center anchor tenants (like Hennes & Mauritz, Marks & Spencer, Lindex or Mango) are concentrated and therefore it is popular among buyers. According to the current stores map of the shopping center MAX Nitra, it lost more tenants and some others (like children playgrounds, bowling alleys and the movie theater) pay little or no rent.

Aforementioned shopping center City Park is still not built and its chances to be completed are declining. Also Ster Century Cinema wasn’t neither opened, nor did the shopping center Onyx2 start its development.
