Pacific Theatres Winnetka 21 Installs New Meyer Sound EXP Cinema System

The breathtaking impact of Meyer Sound’s EXP® cinema loudspeaker systems was driven home by the first screening of “Thor” on screen 9 at Pacific Winnetka 21 multiplex in Chatsworth, a suburb of Los Angeles, Calif. Working in tandem with a new Dolby 3D projection system, the heightened sonic experience of EXP cinema sound technology is a key component of Pacific Theatres’ “Immersive 3D Experience.”

In order to give moviegoers an enhanced 3D experience with the sonic impact that they cannot get in conventional cinemas or at home, Pacific Theatres management chose to install a permanent Meyer Sound EXP cinema sound system.

“The accurate delivery of the creative content is of the utmost importance to the movie going experience and the EXP System exceeded our expectations. Meyer Sound was very professional in their approach to the design of the sound system while effectively collaborating with all of our partners in the project. It was a pleasure topartner with Meyer for this renovation,” says Joe Miraglia, Director of Design, Construction and Facilities for Pacific Theatres.

The Meyer Sound EXP installation—the first of its kind to be installed in a California commercial cinema—was part of a thorough technology and amenities upgrade for screen #9 of the multiplex. The all self-powered EXP system comprises Acheron® 100 and Acheron LF screen channel loudspeakers, flush-mounted HMS-10 surround loudspeakers, and X-800C cinema subwoofers. The system is precisely optimized by a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with Galileo 616 and Galileo 408 processors.

The EXP audio upgrade complements the new 79-foot wall-to-wall curved screen, which helps simulate the feeling of being surrounded. New dual digital NEC projectors equipped with the Dolby 3D system were installed to create a crisp, bright image. The auditorium was completely refurbished including new wider, more comfortable seating.

The extensive technology upgrade package was installed by Universal Cinema Services of Euless, Texas in conjunction with ACS Enterprises of Walnut, Calif. under the supervision of the Dolby technical team. Audio system design was provided by Meyer Sound Design Services using the MAPP Online Cinema™ acoustical prediction program.

Pacific Theatres operates eight cinema locations with more than 100 screens in Southern California, while a sister company, ArcLight Cinemas, operates an additional 61 screens at four locations in the same area. Both exhibitors are owned by the Decurion Corporation of Los Angeles.
