I’m enthralled by Mark Kermode’s series ‘Secrets of Cinema’. This mid-week treat for cinephiles comes from BBC4 on Wednesdays. His exploration of the popular Sci-fi genre was full of insights into recurring themes from aliens to robots, some friendly, some frightening. Of course, no journey through the Sci-fi catalogue would be complete without a look at the potential of time travel.
He remarked in passing that cinema itself is a form of time travel, as movies can transport the audience to any era, past or future. I was immediately reminded of City Home Cinemas (CHC) and their glorious Art Deco Moderne Showroom. Here the past comes to life in homage to the magic of cinema in its heyday. Think of the cascading strains of Montovani, lush velvet drapes and the sense of occasion that comes with a big night out.
Behind the scenes however, this showroom bristles with the very latest audio-visual technology. Take sound for instance, today’s manufacturers are creating invisible speakers capable of perfectly authentic sound. Sound experienced as it is in real life.
The same is true of screen technology. Acoustically transparent, 4K screens create the illusion of being there in the midst of the action. There’s no distortion regardless of where you are seated in the cinema. Together, these leading-edge technologies create a completely immersive experience – The holy Grail of home cinema.
Peter Walker, founder of CHC is passionate about cinema and the quest to present your favourite movies exactly as the Director intended.
