Sonic Equipment Company Announces 50% Conversion Milestone for B&B Theatres Locations

B&B Theatres, the 26th largest chain in North America with 205 screens across Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Florida, is excited to announce that they have converted 50% of their screens to digital using DLP technology.  

Since opening their first new, all digital 8 screen theatre in Hannibal, Missouri in March of 2009, B&B has steadily replaced their 35mm projection equipment with certified series 2 DLP projectors, their most recent conversion being Lebanon, MO.  In October of 2010, B&B opened the brand new B&B Theatres Wildwood 10 with Marquee Suites, the first booth-less theatre in Missouri (view recent article in DCinemaToday).  “I love digital projectors,” commented Bob Bagby, President of B&B Theatres.  “The picture quality is amazing and our breakdowns have decreased substantially in all of our digital theatres.” 
All of B&B’s digital conversions were completed by Sonic Equipment Company of Iola, Kansas.  “Sonic Equipment Company has done a terrific job installing all of our digital projection equipment.  The technicians at Sonic are first rate and I have been extremely pleased with the quality of their work and follow up,” remarked Bagby on his choice of digital equipment and installation provider.  “Sonic Equipment has worked with B&B extensively in the past and we are pleased that B&B has chosen to continue our relationship into the digital era,” said Mike Covey, Production Director at Sonic Equipment Company. 
B&B Theatres expects to convert the remaining 50% of their screens within the next 12-18 months.
