Prince Charles Cinema – Leicester Square

January 2022 saw our engineers Barry Wright and Mike Vale install a new 4K NEC NC3240S into London’s Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, one of the UK’s most popular independent cinemas.  While many cinemas are installing laser-based light source projectors, the high volume of special screenings for directors and cinematographers at this cinema demand a xenon-based light source.  The NC3240 delivers high contrast (2000:1) precise 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution and can provide up to 33,000 lumens if required.

With the auditorium closed for the installation, Barry took the opportunity to service the Victoria 8 dual gauge 35/70mm projector at the same time.
