B-series digital cinema projector

Barco’s digital cinema projectors are steadily conquering the African continent too. Just recently, our distributor/integrator CineTech Middle East JLT started installing Barco projectors at Silverbird Cinemas, West Africa’s largest cinema chain, and the four-theater Ozone Cinemas. Both are well-known cinema exhibitors in Nigeria, the country which features Africa’s largest film industry (dubbed ‘Nollywood’).


Leading entertainment hub
With over 50 screens in the Nigerian cities of Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Uyo and in Accra, Ghana, Silverbird Cinemas is currently the biggest cinema chain in West Africa. More than that, it is a pioneer in the cinema landscape, as Silverbird was the very first to open a multiplex cinema and a 3D theater in Nigeria, in 2004 and 2011 respectively. By installing Barco’s digital cinema projectors in all its theaters, Silverbird is bound to keep its role as a frontrunner.

Where comfort meets technology

Nigerians who want a fully digital cinema experience can also visit the four-screen Ozone Cinemas on the mainland of Lagos. Renowned for its exceptionally comfortable cinema, the cinema exhibitor has replaced its four 35mm projectors with Barco’s digital cinema solutions in the space of just a week.
