Digiplex Leverages Digital Technology to Better Serve Diverse Audiences Including a Series of This Summer’s Biggest Hollywood Hits
Westfield, NJ (May 1, 2013) – Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (NASDAQ CM: DCIN) (Digiplex), today announced the expansion of a program that presents special engagements of major Hollywood movie releases in Spanish to include the Digiplex Bloomfield Cinema located in the Wintonbury Mall at 863 Park Avenue in Bloomfield, CT. Digiplex is a rapidly expanding motion picture exhibitor that is transforming conventional movie theaters into digital entertainment centers and taking full advantage of new technologies to serve diverse audiences and present an expanding array of entertainment options.
Digiplex has already leveraged digital technology to present entertainment alternatives ranging from live sporting events including the Mayweather vs. Guerrero match live from Las Vegas on May 4th, , an exclusive engagement of ultra-marathon documentary Running America to Broadway shows and opera from The Met. Now, the same technology is being harnessed to present mainstream movies in different languages.
The first movie in Spanish at Digiplex is IRON MAN 3 starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow with shows on May 6 and 13. The next features include STAR TREK – INTO DARKNESS on May 20 and the animated family feature EPIC on May 27. Upcoming titles appearing in the series include Man of Steel, World War Z and The Lone Ranger. Additional titles will be announced throughout the summer as they become available. Movies will blend Spanish audio tracks or subtitles, enabling speakers of both languages to follow the story lines.
“At Digiplex, we’re leveraging technology in innovative ways to enhance entertainment options for our patrons,” said Bud Mayo, the Company’s President and CEO, “Bloomfield is the newest addition to Digiplex Destinations in California and Pennsylvania presenting the Spanish language series. The Latino population that can be served by the theater includes nearly 100,000 people and these movies will give multi-generational families the opportunity to enjoy great motion picture entertainment together by bridging language gaps. For students of Spanish who are native English speakers, these films also present a new and engaging way to improve their skills.” Movies in the series will only be rated G, PG or PG-13 to be as inclusive as possible and offer a mix of family-friendly animation, action, adventure, comedy and drama.
