Third Santikos Theatre Announced, Palladium IMAX Unveils D-BOX Motion Seating this Month

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, has announced a third location with Santikos Theatres - Santikos Palladium IMAX in San Antonio, Texas.

Given the overwhelming success of the Santikos Silverado 16 in San Antonio with the groundbreaking technology, Santikos Theatres has selected a second location in the city to offer this one-of-a-kind experience. The Palladium IMAX will equip one of its elaborate auditoriums with 30 D-BOX MFX Seats (2 rows) and is scheduled to unveil the technology to the public with the opening of New Line Cinema's Nightmare on Elm Street on April 30th.

"We are very pleased to be announcing another location in San Antonio with Santikos less than just three weeks after the debut of our D-BOX MFX Seats in the area," stated President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "The state-of-the-art Santikos Palladium Imax theatre, being their flagship location, is a perfect complement to the realistic motion effects our seating offers moviegoers."

Complete with 19 auditoriums all with stadium seating, digital sound and projection, two full-service restaurants, a mezzanine bar and a state-of-the-art gaming area, Santikos Palladium IMAX is comprehensively cutting edge. With an ornate exterior unlike any other movie theatre, the Palladium IMAX resembles something out of Greek mythology while the interior exhibits VIP amenities and high tech touches unique to most movie theatres today.

"D-BOX is doing tremendously well at the box office," said Chief Operating Officer of Santikos Theatres, Art Seago. "Currently showing with Clash of the Titans, D-BOX continues to be a huge draw for moviegoers looking for a new experience. We are thrilled to have a third location opening soon, the first being the Silverado IMAX in Tomball, and anticipate continued success at the Palladium."
