The Wangaratta Cinema Centre opened in November 1995 in response to the desire of the public of Wangaratta to have an up-to-date entertainment complex of their own. Initially comprising three screens, the tremendous support of our customers convinced us to add an extra screen to the complex in 1999 thus enabling a greater variety of product to be offered. The facilities provided by the cinema are second to none in country Australia. "Cadmatic 2000" seating, wall-to-wall screens in All Cinemas, QSC DCP 300 7.1 "Dolby" "surround sound" and Christie's 2220 Solaria Digital Projectors all combine to give our patrons a cinema experience only normally available in the larger city-based "multiplexes".
The Company is 100% Locally Owned by two shareholders whom have a keen interest in the Cinema industry with over 50 years between them!
The entire staff of the Wangaratta Cinema Centre share our commitment to provide quality entertainment and unparalleled customer service.
"The Projection Equipment"
We have the first of the new models "Christie Solaria Series 2220" and are the first installation of them in Australia.
All of our cinemas are equipped with these state of the art 4K projectors.
We also have FFR which can run 75 frames per second (the currecnt standard is 25 fames per second) this in simple terms gives three times the picture Quality.
Not to forget we have Satelite capabilities as well for those special events.
We also are only one of two cinemas to still have two fully operational 35mm Film Projectiors (incase anyone would still like to run an old 35mm print)
What sets Christie's Solaria Series apart?
