Christie was founded in 1929 and began as a manufacturer of 35mm film movie projectors, lamphouses, lamp consoles and film platter systems. Later, it began importing Japanese-made Xenon bulbs before acquiring the Kitchener, Ontario-based digital projection business of Electrohome Limited in 1999. As the first licensee of Texas Instruments’ DLP Cinema technology, Christie quickly became a leader in the conversion of 35mm to digital cinema. Today, more than 43,000 cinema screens worldwide use Christie technology.


Christie has earned over 80 industry awards and numerous corporate awards of distinction, including two technical achievement Academy Awards for its Ultramittent technology (1983) and Endless Loop Film Transport and Service System in 1998. In 2009, Christie won Manufacturer of the Year, as voted by the International Cinema Technology Association.

InfoComm International presented Christie with the first Green AV Award in 2010. Mediacorp Canada Inc. recognized Christie with several employer awards in 2010, including Canada’s Greenest Employers and Best Employers for New Canadians.

Jack Kline, the Company’s chairman, president and CEO, received the 2014 Ken Mason Inter-Society Award during a ceremony at CinemaCon 2014 for outstanding long-term contributions leading to the overall improvement of the motion picture experience.

The three-storey Christie MicroTiles wall at the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus won gold in the 2013 Apex Awards competition in the Education and Healthcare category.
