Cinema Screens

The screen surface is one of the lowest cost items in fitting out a cinema, but it can have a major impact on the viewing experience. Harkness screens deliver excellent brightness, colour rendition, and contrast for maximum presentation quality while helping to reduce theatre operating costs

In business for over 80 years, Harkness Screens™ has worked hard to earn the trust of customers worldwide. And the results speak for themselves. Today we are the world's largest cinema screen manufacturer, supplying thousands of screens annually to customers in over 60 countries from our factories in the United States, France, United Kingdom, Canada, and China. Theatre operators seek out Harkness Screens™ for new construction projects, auditorium renovation, and to replace their aging screen estate. The driving force behind most of this activity is the conversion from film to digital cinema exhibition.

Harkness Screens™ Matt Plus, Perlux®, and Spectral™ brand products are helping the cinema industry go digital while at the same time reducing operating costs. Exhibitors, dealers, and installers worldwide choose Harkness Screens™ because our products are engineered and constructed using the highest quality materials and manufacturing processes to ensure an outstanding finish with excellent brightness, colour rendition, and contrast
