MAG Cinema Systems in the Historical Cinema Capitol Schwerin
The Filmpalast Capitol is one of the best cinemas in Northern Germany, built in 1936. The stage in the historical hall is equipped with the laterally rollable screen and the stage hoist allowing to use Capitol both as a cinema and a theater. Thanks to such unique solution and almost 100-year history, the cinema has no equivalent in the state of Mecklenburg Vorpommern.
Owing to the state-of-the-art technologies and exquisite architecture, the Capitol was chosen as an exhibit for a Paris World’s Fair in 1937. It was honored as “the most beautiful contemporary cinema hall in the world.”
In the 90s the cinema was extended by 4 rooms, and in 2016 by another room.
In the last two years, the cinema has been completely renovated. After extensive refurbishment, the cinema now boasts state-of-the-art audio equipment. In order to ensure great sound, the cinema was equipped with the MAG Cinema screen systems, surround systems and subwoofers, as well as MAG DC series amplifier systems.
Michael Pawlowski, Capitol Schwerin CEO comments, “With the installation of the MAG sound system, including the two line array towers, the sound is now perfectly fixed and covers extensively the room with a concert-like, wonderful sound.”
In total, the cinema is equipped with 55 acoustic systems and 25 amplifiers ensuring rich sound in the Capitol during film shows, stage plays and concerts.
