BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA — The small three screen Hawthorne Cinemas (in the Brisbane suburb of Hawthorne) recently installed a Christie Series 2 projector in Cinema 1. The Cinema itself dates from the 1940’s and was converted into a 3plex some years ago.

Cinema 1 has 510 seats and a massive 56 foot screen. The digital image looks very good on this screen. The first movie screened in digital was ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ at Christmas time. On Valentines Day, ‘Casanova’ opened in digital.

It was quite a feat for this small independent cinema chain to invest in this technology. Further details of all of their cinemas may be found at www.cineplex.com.au.

This projector was removed from Hawthorne in March this year and installed into cinema 7 at the new Victoria Point 9 complex that the company built. Another christie projector was installed beside it to allow screenings of Meet The Robinsons in 3D. This cinema has been the only cinema in the state of Queensland to screen both Spiderman 3 and Pirates 3 in digital.
