Christie® announced that Cinémas Guzzo, a Canada-based leading independent cinema chain has purchased 57 Christie Solaria™ series digital cinema projectors, which utilize Academy Award1-winning DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments’ (TI) (NYSE: TXN).
Cinémas Guzzo, a family owned business founded in 1974, with 148 screens in 11 theatre complexes throughout the Montreal area, has launched several waves of expansion – the most recent being a new generation of avant-garde entertainment centers.
Founder Angelo Guzzo is one of the earliest pioneers of independent multi-screen movie theatres in Canada. He was instrumental in leading the struggle for independent theatre owners to obtain the right to project first-run movies, paving the way for others. Along with his son Vincenzo, Executive Vice President of Cinémas Guzzo, they are tapping into their passion for cinema to successfully expand their presence across Quebec. Over the next few years, they anticipate opening three new 100% digital multiplexes, all using Christie projectors.
