Harry Potter 3D premier scoops Guinness Record

The French 3D premiere of the latest Harry Potter film has scooped a Guinness World Record for the largest 3D digital cinema projection. Six Christie Solaria projectors fired on to a 29.9m x 12.33m screen at the Palais Ominisports de Paris-Bercy.

Two clusters of three Solaria Series CP2230 DLP Cinema projectors were used for the screening in front of an audience of 8,500.

Pascal Gervais, regional director at Christie, said: “We’re really proud to have made this world record possible through our Christie Solaria range of digital cinema projectors.”

Gervais continued to express his pleasure at being selected by big-format 3D specialist 2Avi, and by Warner Bros to be involved in the project.
