D-BOX Technologies Inks First Deal with California-based Cinema West
Four New Theatre Locations Announced to Offer D-BOX Motion Experience
LONGUEUIL, QC, April 27 /CNW Telbec/ - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (DBO.A on the TSX Venture Exchange), a leader in innovative motion technology for the entertainment industry, announced today it has signed a multi-year agreement with California-based movie theatre company Cinema West, to install D-BOX MFX Seats in four of its movie theatres.
Creating a first-of-its-kind movie experience, D-BOX introduced its proprietary motion technology in commercial theatres in April 2009, launching in just two auditoriums in the U.S. One year later, D-BOX continues to expand and generate recurring revenues from each movie featuring its technology. Now, up to 27 theaters worldwide are equipped or will soon be equipped with D-BOX MFX Seating.
"This past year has been one of tremendous growth," said President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "We are continuing to expand at a steady rate, entering the international market. With the addition of new partners like Cinema West, deploying multiple theatres simultaneously, we expect to maintain our pace and continue to increase the number of theatres featuring the D-BOX experience."
Cinema West is one of just eleven companies in the world to equip its theatres with the ground-breaking technology that moves in perfect sync with the onscreen action. All four locations will unveil the D-BOX MFX Seats on May 28 with Disney's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The four Cinema West locations to feature the D-BOX experience include Palladio Cinemas in Folsom, Boulevard Cinemas in Petaluma, Livermore Cinemas in Livermore and Contra Costa Cinemas in Martinez.
"We pride ourselves in offering a premier, state-of-the-art movie experience," said Dave Corkill, President of Cinema West. "With the installation of D-BOX in our theatres, we are further enhancing the overall experience for our clients, inviting them to be a part of the movie from their very own seats."
