About American Cinema Equipment (ACE)

Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1995, we’ve been designing, installing, servicing, and repairing movie theater equipment for more than 20 years.

We work with movie theaters across the United States, with all sizes of theaters (from single screens to large multiplexes), and all types of equipment (digital, film, 3D, drive-in, and more).

Our team is manufacturer certified for all major projectors, servers, TMS and audio installation and service.

American Cinema Equipment’s continued excellence has been recognized by I.C.T.A. awarding us Dealer of the Year 6 times, 2000, 2009 and with back to back awards in 2006/2007 and 2014/2015.

American Cinema Equipment, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, is the nation’s premier resource for movie theatre equipment, design, supply, and service. With over 100 years of combined experience, we ensure that your project or repair is completed to your expectations.

ACE represents all major sound, seating, staging and projection manufacturers. We help to get exactly what you want and need. With a variety of manufacturers at our fingertips, we can tailor a solution for your theater.

We stock most items that a theatre needs including bulbs, circuit boards, amplifiers and speakers for same-day shipment. For the few parts we don't have in stock, we can typically drop-ship them directly to you from the manufacturer.

Our in-house technicians also perform repairs on equipment that the manufacturers no longer support. This includes all film projectors as well as many servers, such as the Dolby DSS100 and DSS200. If we can't repair them, we'll work with you to find the most cost-effective solution for your theater.

Our team is manufacturer certified for all major projectors, servers, TMS and audio installation and service.
