Vista Entertainment has signed an agreement with French exhibitor Les Cinemas Pathé Gaumont to incorporate a range of Vista’s theatre management software products into its operation.
As of the end of 2017, Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont operates 69 cinemas in France with a total of 773 screens. It saw 46.2 million admissions in 2017. Building on the experience of using Vista Cinema in Switzerland and Belgium, Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont will engage the Vista Cinema management software suite for the sale of tickets and concessions across the French circuit. The rollout is scheduled for 2019.
For their projects in Northern-Africa, Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont has chosen the cloud-based cinema management system Veezi, for local payment and reporting requirements.
Mischa Kay, managing director of Vista Entertainment Solutions, EMEA said, “In what can only be described as a monumental turning point for Vista Cinema in France, we are incredibly proud to count Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont amongst our customers. Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont’s drive for innovation has led to this partnership and we are excited to see how our products will contribute even more to Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont’s efforts of pushing the boundaries of customer service and operational efficiency.’’
Martine Odillard, chairman of Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont said, “We are very confident in our choice to implement the Vista Cinema software solution. This milestone is key to go further in our strategy of upgrading and modernizing our cinemas.”
