D-Box Technologies and Ecco Cine Supply and Service are installing D-Box haptic seats and recliners, at five different locations in Germany. The installations should be completed by the end of September.
The theatres include Cinewood Kinocenter in Waldkraiburg, Lichtburg Center in Dinslaken, Regina Palast in Leipzig, Capitol Kino in Altenburg, and CiD Cinema in Döbeln.
“As a longstanding partner in sales, installation and technical support for D-Box products, Ecco has an in-depth understanding of the European market, of our technology and of the advantages it brings to exhibitors and moviegoers,” said Sébastien Mailhot, president and CEO of D-Box. “Their contribution to D-BOX’s success across Germany and Europe is unrivaled.”
“The pandemic is not over yet, but those exhibitors are highly encouraged with the status of the theatrical recovery in Germany and the accrued demand for the immersive, premium cinematic experience,” said Thomas Rüttgers, managing director at Ecco. “Given the big success of recent blockbusters and No time to die, the new James Bond film, being released soon, it was important for them to have those movie screens installed on time to capitalize on the long-awaited new release of a franchise that is already promised to a global success.”
To date, Ecco has already installed more than 160 D-Box screens in Germany with installations all across the country.
