Les Galeries - Lausanne
A shot from the main entrance of our multiplex In Lausanne. Before
it’s was 2 separate theaters and in 1995 we’ve converted in a 6-plex, and
2 theaters where added in 1998. The cinema is nearby the main railway station
and many people are coming after a business day to see a movie. 8 auditoriums,
a total of 1093 seats.

A Shot of the Booths Nr 1 and 2. These auditoriums have 125 seats each.
The booths are equipped with a Strong X90 console and a 5-deck Strong alpha
platters. The sound system is JBL loud speakers and of course Dolby
Digital. The customers can walk by theses booth and look into the
glass. Peoples like to see the machines running. For them is a part
of magic of the movie theater
A Shot inside the booth Nr 2. In the Background you can see the
entrance for the auditorium 1 and 3. Sorry that you can’t see the
entire projector mechanism but to take this picture I had to be on the
other side of the platters where the booth is very cramped!

The main booths are dedicated to projectors 3 and 4. It serves
to build and breakdown the programs too.
A closer view of the projector Nr 3. X-90 console, CPA 10 automation,
5-Deck Strong alpha Platters, Dolby CP 65 Processor. A few months
later this auditorium will upgraded with a DA-20 and a CAT-700 Dolby Digital
What’s happend if the projectionist let the xenon lamp on all the day?
This douser plate was burned by a 1,6 kW xenon Lamp. Note for this
moment we don’t have another alternative, The Strong CPA-10 automation
goes crazy when the xenon is ignited by the automation.

theater featuring 386 comfortable seats and SRD – SDDS and DTS sound. That’s
