LONGUEUIL, QC, March 2 /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 another agreement with Texas-based Santikos Theatres to feature its motion-enhanced seats in two new theatres - the Silverado 16 in San Antonio scheduled to be equipped in March and another Texas location, anticipated for later this Spring.
The Silverado 16 will be the second Santikos Theatre to equip one of its auditoriums with two rows of 15 D-BOX MFX Seats for a grand total of 30, serving as the first San Antonio movie theatre to debut the technology. Last December, Santikos Theatres' Silverado 19 IMAX was the first theatre in the Houston area to introduce D-BOX.
"We are continuing to expand quickly throughout the U.S.," said President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "Once the two new Santikos locations open, four movie theatres in Texas will offer the D-BOX experience, more than any other state."
"We are so excited to bring D-BOX to San Antonio. The feedback from our customers in Houston has been phenomenal, and we are expecting the same response at the Silverado 16" said Art Seago, director of operations for Santikos Theatres.
