When leading Indonesian cinema brand FLIX Cinema opened a new, 10 screen cinema complex at the prestigious Mall of Indonesia in Jakarta, Alcons Audio pro-ribbon systems were the natural choice for its three most luxurious auditoriums.

Highest level of comfort

FlixCinema logoFLIX Cinema is a brand of Agung Sedayu Group, one of Indonesia’s premier development corporations. Its first venue was at the PIK Avenue mall, in the Pantai Indah Kapuk district of north Jakarta. Opened in 2017, an Alcons Audio CRMSCompact cinema reference monitor system was installed in the premium-priced Platinum auditorium, which offered the highest level of comfort and, of course, the very best sound and picture technology.
The Alcons system was designed by Sie Kek Chung (KC) of Jakarta-based KC Sound. It impressed FLIX Cinema customers so much that KC was asked to design and supply Alcons pro-ribbon solutions for the three most luxurious auditoriums at the flagship Mall of Indonesia (MOI) installation, one of the biggest cinema complexes in Indonesia.

“The reference standard to which other cinemas are compared to,” David Hilman, COO of FLIX Cinema

“The Alcons pro-ribbon system at our PIK Avenue location became the reference standard to which other cinemas are compared to. At MOI we wanted a sound system to match it, so we chose Alcons for the most prestigious auditoriums,” says David Hilman, COO of FLIX Cinema.
“We wanted a system that would create an immersive cinema experience and, at the same time, be very balanced and well-rounded. We want our customers to hear a very detailed sound – everything from conversation to a needle falling on the floor. And all of that with reliability, robustness and ease of maintenance for minimum downtime.”
