Goldberg Brothers, Inc
Projection Port Fire Shutter
Goldberg Brothers reveals the Projection Port Fire Shutter. Goldberg has teamed up with a leading fire shutter company to design a shutter that installs easily in the projection booth to cover one or more ports, leaving alone the port and glass with the clarity required by the theater. This manually operated shutter is certified for ratings up to three hours and protects both the auditorium and projection booth with fusible links on each side. Optional electronic alarm control hooks to fire or smoke alarms. The Projection Port Fire Shutters are now available to meet fire code requirements in your theater.

OptiPure AR Safety
Goldberg OptiPure AR Safety is a safety rated anti-reflective optical glass that doesn't lose clarity. Final testing is being wrapped up and prototypes are going to be displayed at CinemaCon 2011. Goldberg's OptiPure manufacturer has perfected the process in which the tempering of the coated AR glass does not change the clarity rating of 98 percent. Goldberg anticipates offering OptiPure AR Safety this spring to early summer 2011 for both their current line-up of projection ports as well as custom size pieces for the replacement market. Reduced liability, peace of mind, code compliance, and reduced insurance premiums.

Harkness Screens
Perlux® Digital retains all the features of the Perlux® line, with the added benefit of being optimised for digital projection. Screen samples will be available at the Harkness booth throughout the duration of CinemaCon.

"We developed our new Perlux Digital screens to provide cinema operators the ability to optimize digital projection and we are very happy to introduce it at CinemaCon 2011," says Andrew Robinson, managing director of Harkness Screens.

Ideal for larger screens with active and passive 3D technologies (not using polarized light), such as Dolby 3D, and for large 2D screens, Perlux® Digital requires minimal color correction during projector setup, thus reducing the complexity of converting to digital. Perlux® Digital is 30 percent whiter than the prior Perlux formation while maintaining the same impressive brightness, viewing angles and invisible seams that Harkness is known.

Harkness' Perlux® brand gain screens (Perlux® 140, Perlux® 180 and Perlux® 220) include both 2D and 3D screen surfaces for any size theater. Harkness' Perlux® screens are considered by leading cinema exhibitors and special venue operators worldwide to be the premier gain projection surface.

Perlux® 140 is a versatile 2D screen intended for medium-sized auditoria where as the Perlux® 180 is designed for larger auditoria. Both surfaces offer high contrast, bright pictures and wide viewing angles. Harkness' proprietary and unique seam welding process ensures its screens have no visible seams under projection conditions. Perlux® 220 is a special ultra-high brightness screen intended for 3D non-polarized light systems such as Dolby and active glasses technologies and is also well-suited for very large 2D digital auditoria.

This looks like it could turn into a classic example of audiences disagreeing with the professional film buffs. The action flick already boasts a 76% approval rating from nearly 28,000 user reviews on Flixster.

Zack Snyder's Watchmen made $4.6 million from midnight shows before opening to $55.2 million. 300 did $2.5 million en route to a $70.9 million debut.
