DIGIPLEX DESTINATIONS THEATERS TO SHOW

 

LIVE MAYWEATHER-ORTIZ BOUT ON THE BIG SCREEN, SEPT. 17,

 

WESTFIELD, N.J. AND BLOOMFIELD, CONN.

 

           

            WESTFIELD, N.J. (Aug. 18, 2011) – Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has taken over a year off from the fight game, and he’s returning – live and in digital HD – on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011, to fight current WBC Welterweight champion “Vicious” Victor Ortiz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

            Digiplex Destinations, a new and fast growing chain of all-digital theaters, will be hosting fight fans on Sept. 17 at Digiplex Bloomfield, 863 Park Ave., Bloomfield, Conn. (five miles from downtown Hartford), and at the Digiplex Rialto Theater, 250 East Broad St., Westfield, N.J. The bout begins at 9 p.m. ET, and tickets for $18 can be purchased at the box office or online at www.digiplexdest.com.

            Says A. Dale (Bud) Mayo, Digiplex Destinations chairman/CEO, “This is a great example of how digital technology can transform a traditional movie theater into an entertainment destination.

            “ Our plan is to convert each newly acquired theater from film to digital projection, so we can offer our customers many new choices, such as this live event, in addition to great Hollywood movies.”

The fight will be shown in its entirety with the world welterweight title fight between “Money” Mayweather and titleholder Ortiz as the main event, with undercards featuring Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Alfonso Gomez, and Erik Morales vs. Lucas Matthysse.

            Ortiz, at 24, is 10 years younger than Mayweather and holds a 33-2 record with 29 wins by knockout. Mayweather sports an impressive 41-0 record across five weight divisions, 25 by K.O. This will be his first bout since his WBA World Welterweight title fight with “Sugar” Shane Mosley on May 1, 2010.

The Rialto Theater of Westfield, along with the theater in Cranford, N.J. and Bloomfield, Conn., are the first three Digiplex Destinations theaters in the nation.  They are the foundation of a chain of all-digital theaters that digital theater pioneer and entrepreneur Bud Mayo is building across the U.S. with his team at Digital Cinema Destinations Corp., located above the Rialto Theater of Westfield. 

            In addition to commercial movies, Digiplex theaters offer a full range of alternative programming such as opera, ballet, pop concerts, live sports events, corporate events, and children’s series.
