CINEvents to Premiere The Grateful Dead Movie in HDMovie to play select theatres in January (January 24, 2005)
CINEvents, Inc., a leading provider of high definition entertainment, announced today the world premiere digital broadcast of The Grateful Dead Movie to select movie theatres across the US. The movie will screen in theatres on successive evenings, January 24th, 25th, and 26th.
The event marks the landmark concert filmıs first ever digital theatrical release. The newly restored edition features rare archived material re-mastered in high definition as well as the surround sound mix as originally envisioned and personally overseen by Jerry Garcia. The film includes the classic Grateful Dead line up of Jerry Garcia, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir along with Keith and Donna Godchaux, with a special appearance from the then-retired Mickey Hart. Only theatres employing Cinema Grade DLP projectors and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound will participate. Each DLP projector houses a special chip containing a rectangular array of up to 1.3 million hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors, each measuring less than 1/5th the width of a human hair. CINEvents harnesses this technology by multicasting over its Digital Cinema Network to enable a new level of high definition entertainment to be experienced in the movie theatre environment.
"CINEvents is thrilled to be working with Grateful Dead Productions to provide the highest technical caliber of theatre entertainment possible" said Bob Stewart, CEO of CINEvents. "We believe this event ushers in a new era of theatre-based entertainment."
"The Grateful Dead has partnered with CINEvents because their exceptional technology and theatre network allow us to present The Grateful Dead Movie as it was originally intended in High Definition video and with Jerry's original theatrical audio mix" said David Lemieux, the band's official Audio / Visual Archivist.
