Megaplex Theatres Chooses Cinedigm Digital Cinema For Digital Deployment

Deal will enable the rollout of 90 New Digital Cinema Screens at six locations
Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), the global leader in digital cinema, today announced a long-term VPF deployment agreement with Megaplex Theatres.  Megaplex will be providing its own financing in the Cinedigm exhibitor-buyer deal structure.  The rollout comprises 90 screens at six Megaplex locations, with the majority of installations expected to be completed by summer 2012.

The transition from 35mm film projection, which has been used for 110 years, to digital projection systems is a world-wide motion picture industry effort and the costs to deploy this new technology are covered primarily through the payment of virtual print fees (VPF) from studios to implementation companies.

Cinedigm's Digital Cinema division facilitates the funding, installation and operations support, along with ongoing VPF administration, for the company's digital cinema rollout plans. Cinedigm has signed long-term VPF agreements with all the major studios and interim agreements with dozens of independent distributors.

Megaplex Theatres is a part of the Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment Group, which is also owned by Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Corporate headquarters for Megaplex Theatres are located at Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. Megaplex operates six theatre complexes, including  Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, UT, the Gateway, Salt Lake City, UT, the Junction, Ogden, UT, Jordan Commons, Sandy, UT, Legacy Crossing in Centerville, UT, and the District, South Jordan, UT.

“After extensive research and evaluation of our options, we are thrilled to be working with Cinedigm on this conversion to digital,” said Blake Andersen of Megaplex Theatres. “Our guests expect the very best from Megaplex and we know they will immediately experience the benefits of digital cinema.”

“Megaplex has a reputation for outstanding performance both technically and operationally,” said Gary Loffredo, Cinedigm’s President of Digital Cinema Services.  “We are exceedingly proud now to call Blake and his team our newest exhibitor partner.”

In the combined Phase One and Phase Two digital cinema deployment program, Cinedigm has:
  • Signed 10,189 screens overall
  • Installed 8,950 digital screens
  • Signed digital screens deals with 184 exhibitors 
Cinedigm digital theatres are fully networked, turnkey systems – simple and cost-efficient to operate.

* These figures do not include IMAX screens.
