LOS ANGELES—Caruso, one of the largest privately held real estate development and hospitality companies in the United States, retrofitted the static theatre marquee at AMC The Grove 14 with a 95-foot-long, curved digital marquee.
The new LED marquee manufactured by SNA Displays employs an extremely tight 3.9 mm pixel pitch, making it one of the first sub-4-mm exterior LED displays on the West Coast. At 4’1″ tall and 95’3″ long, the display has a resolution of 320 x 7,424 and includes a total of 2.4 million pixels.
The Grove is one of the country’s most acclaimed shopping, dining, and lifestyle destination, located in the heart of Los Angeles, about a mile from the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Owner-representative Consumer Experience Group (CEG), a national consultancy for experiential display projects, oversaw the display technology specifications and procurement process, selecting SNA Displays to manufacture and supply the EMPIRE™ Exterior outdoor LED display technology.
“The Grove is a true destination venue with a great design and is focused on finding ways to integrate technology to enhance customer experience,” said Jeremy Kolieb, principal at CEG. “Retrofitting the signage at The Grove’s iconic theatre marquee with a much more dynamic LED marquee modernizes the theater’s entrance area and provides much greater flexibility for messaging and other content for visitors.”
SNA Displays partnered with AD/S for installation and architectural design services, ensuring the updated technology matched the look and feel of the cinema’s existing marquee design. OUTFRONT Media, one of the largest outdoor media companies in the US, operates and schedules content for the marquee as well as other digital displays at The Grove.
