Corpus Stadium 16 has the largest screen in Texas, measuring over 70 feet wide! The new Intense Digital Experience (IDX) screen brings a unique movie going experience to Starplex Cinemas patrons. The exceptional visual presentation delivers a higher quality resolution than HD, creating brilliant images complimented by unparalleled sound intensity. The IDX auditorium features a wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor screen with 3D & digital technology encompassed with sound that is 3 times the power of conventional theater auditoriums. This theater is also equipped with spacious new plush leather seats.
The Hobbit has been filmed in HFR (High Frame Rate). Frame rates are the number of images (frames) displayed by a projector in one second. Science tells us that the human eye stops seeing individual pictures at about 55 fps. Therefore, shooting at 48 fps gives you much more of an illusion of real life. Twenty four frames per second is the current standard in cinemas worldwide. HFR 3D productions of 48 fps record and play visuals at twice the frame rate. This format will provide moviegoers an exciting option for their viewing pleasure.
“We are pleased to offer this unique experience to our patrons,” states Tod Hanna, COO of Starplex Cinemas.
Starplex Cinemas currently operates 22 theatres and 235 screens in Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Washington, Indiana, California and New Jersey.
