Cinetopia, Christie/AIX Bring Digital Cinema to the Nation’s Northwest

Digital Technology Will Enhance The Cinetopia Experience
Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. (“AccessIT”) (AMEX: AIX) underscoring its commitment to both large and small movie exhibitors across the country, today announced the company’s Christie/AIX unit will install state-of-the-art digital delivery, 2K projection and management systems for all eight of the screens at the Cinetopia ( Theater Complex in Vancouver, Washington, a suburb of Portland, Oregon. Installation is expected to be completed in May, 2006.

The Cinetopia is one of the area’s premier film entertainment venues offering patrons unique, premium-priced features including extra-wide grand auditorium rows for enhanced comfort, extra-wide leather seating, advanced high-definition projection, and Klipsch audio equipment. Other amenities include live pre-show music, three unique “living room” theaters offering a private, skybox-like experience, a restaurant, wine bar with indoor and tropical garden seating, and art gallery. In addition, the complex houses a state-of-the-art business conferencing and meeting facility for private events and affairs.

“We recognized long ago the opportunity and value of delivering a unique, high-quality entertainment experience to patrons. Cinetopia has dedicated itself to providing customers with an experience that goes beyond the traditional - one they have now come to expect and one that keeps our audiences returning time and again,” commented Rudyard Coltman, President of Cinetopia LLC. “Digital cinema is a key enabler for us, providing the flexibility to continue this tradition by expanding our offerings to further differentiate the Cinetopia experience. Christie/AIX is clearly the leader in helping exhibitors adopt digital cinema, having demonstrated their expertise with market-proven technology and multiplex-wide deployments. We are confident in Christie/AIX’s ability to complete these installations and look forward to employing our 2K digital systems, including Christie DLP Cinema® projectors for both feature films and an increasingly wide variety of new forms of alternative content.”

Chuck Goldwater, president and chief operating officer of Christie/AIX, said: “We are pleased to add Cinetopia to our growing list of diverse exhibitor partners which now includes Carmike, a major national circuit, and UltraStar and Emagine, two leading regional independents. As AccessIT has demonstrated at its own Pavilion Digital Showcase Theatre in New York, digital cinema is an invaluable tool for innovative, entrepreneurial exhibitors seeking to convert movie houses into entertainment destinations that add a new dimension to the movie-going experience. We remain committed to serving the full spectrum of the motion picture exhibitor community - from large to small – in towns and cities across the entire United States. Our negotiations with other theatre chains of all sizes are progressing well.”

AccessIT's Christie/AIX unit serves as the funding vehicle and administrator for the company's 4,000-screen digital cinema rollout plan expanded significantly from the total originally announced in June 2005. Christie/AIX will act as the financing intermediary between content-owners -- major studios and independent distributors, among others -- and exhibitors who will receive turnkey Digital Cinema systems that conform with the DCI Technical Specification, including Christie DLP Cinema® projectors and related hardware and software.
