Dallas Texas-based Movie Tavern will use Barco projectors for the conversion of their remaining 104 screens — those that had not already converted to Barco. With this strategic move Movie Tavern will be completely digital and exclusively Barco. The conversions are scheduled for completion by the end of the year. The effort is part of Cinedigm's Phase 2 digital cinema deployment program. Movie Tavern will use projectors from Barco's new Series-II line and servers supplied by GDC Technology. In the contemporary theatre industry Movie Tavern is part of a growing and very popular trend that combines movie going with full service “restaurant-style” dining — in comfortable boutique settings. Movie Tavern currently operates venues in Texas Georgia Virginia Kentucky and Ohio with further expansion planned for additional markets in their circuit. “Movie Tavern is committed to giving its guests the very best film presentations possible ” says John Hersker CEO and president of Movie Tavern. “We also know that Barco shares that commitment and we're excited to partner with them to achieve our full digital cinema conversion.” 

“Movie Tavern is an exciting and dynamic concept designed to give patrons a combination of high quality dining and a premium movie-viewing experience ” says Patrick Lee director of business operations Barco Digital Cinema North America. “Movie Tavern is a company that's all about innovation. Their commitment to our Series-II demonstrates the desire to give their customers the finest viewing experience possible and also emphasizes Barco's ability to match the right projector to the right auditorium. On behalf of the entire Barco team that's handling Movie Tavern's installation we're looking forward to partnering with them on their Series-II deployment.”   Movie Tavern is committed to giving its guests the very best film presentation possible.  We know that GDC shares that commitment and are excited to be able to partner with them to achieve our full conversion to digital cinema says Hersker.   Movie Tavern
