Christie® has donated a top-of-the-line Christie digital cinema projector to help entertain the local community in the new Gianopulos Family Theater at the Wilson-Hanks Family Cultural Center, Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, California. The theater is the latest addition to the Huffington Center, located in the Byzantine-Latino Quarter of Los Angeles.  Christie’s Managed Services team worked with audio-visual innovator BLACKSTAR Engineering to install the Christie Solaria® Series projector and other theater equipment, transforming a basketball court by day into a fully professional movie theater by night.

A gala dedication ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 17, to unveil the new theater to the community and parishioners of St. Sophia, and to celebrate all of the benefactors involved in the development of this new venue.  Christie will also be presented with a plaque that will be affixed to the theater in honor of its contribution to the center. 

“Christie is pleased to provide a truly meaningful gift that will assist the church in serving the community,” said Jack Kline, president and COO, Christie. “Movies offer a great medium for telling stories, for sharing education, culture and history, and of course for entertaining. The Christie projector at the Wilson-Hanks Family Cultural Center is an integral part of the church, and we feel it serves an important function because movies are also a great way to bring a community together under one roof to share in a magical experience.”
