Christie Complete Cinema Solutions Bring New Life to the refurbished New Farm Cinemas in Brisbane

Christie Solaria Series projectors and Christie Vive Audio solutions create impressive cinematic experiences for movie-goers

New Farm, a trendy inner-city suburb of Brisbane in Australia, is one of the city’s most cosmopolitan areas. It is home to popular bars and restaurants, as well as an iconic cinema situated along Brunswick Street that has a history spanning almost a century.

Originally constructed in 1921 as the open-air Merthyr Picture Palace, the cinema was remodelled in the 1930s to become the Astor, and subsequently revamped to become Queensland’s first multi-screen cinema known as the Village Twin.

Recently refurbished, the New Farm Cinemas is equipped with Christie® Solaria Series projectors and Christie Vive Audio, making it the first Cineplex in Australia to be installed with Christie’s complete cinema solutions.
