Chicago has the first multiplex fully outfitted with Sony 4K projectors

A Sony Electronics PR person e-mailed today to let me (and you) know that the new Muvico 18-screen multiplex in the Chicago area (it's called the Muvico Rosemont 18) officially opens tomorrow, and will be the first in the world to have 4K projectors in every booth.

Of course, how much 4K content they'll be able to show is another question entirely, since most digital cinema releases are in 2K.

    Seriously - that's a good point about the 4K capabilities. But it's good, I think, that Sony is thinking a couple steps in the future and building in room to grow instead of shipping 2K projectors that will then need to be replaced when the releases grow beyond that.
