Allure and its Christie Experiential Network Continue Expansion as Company Inks Deal with Southern Theatres in U.S.
Allure Delivering Digital Posters and Experiential Displays as Part of Major Roll-Out in Theatre Lobbies Across North America
Allure and its Christie Experiential Network (CEN), leaders in creating engaging experiential Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) solutions, has signed a deal with Southern Theatres to deliver digital in-theatre advertising and promotional content through its interactive and experiential digital displays in theatre lobbies. The deal further expands Southern Theatres’ multiyear partnership with Allure and CEN for digital signage services.
CEN’s agreement with Southern
Theatres increases its footprint in top DMAs in the Southeast. Christie, which
won “Best Overall Retail or Mall
Experience” at the Daily DOOH 2015 Gala Awards for its installation at the Emagine Palladium theatre lobby in
Birmingham, Mich., will work closely with Southern Theatres to integrate its studio
and institutional ad-based network into the exhibitor’s visually striking
theatre lobbies. These installations will feature interactive and 3D content
delivered on brilliant, animated Digital Posters and Experiential Displays, ranging
from stand-alone units to award winning Hero Walls with digital panels arranged
in an 8-foot high by 14-foot wide herringbone pattern.
The displays will demonstrate Allure
and its Christie Experiential Network’s proven expertise in delivering
sophisticated, highly effective advertising campaigns using the latest
innovations in digital technology to engage with theatre audiences and enhance
exhibitors’ competitive advantage and revenue streams.
Allure has significant digital
signage theatre deployments across much of the United States as well as in
China and other international markets in addition to Christie’s domination of the
digital cinema projection market with more than 50,000 installations worldwide.
The company is also a player in premium cinema sound with Christie Vive Audio,
while its Network Operations Centers monitors more than 60,000 devices. These
include thousands of digital menu boards and movie posters, merchandisers,
digital box office and auditorium displays, as well as nearly 4,000 digital
cinema screens and 4,700 screens offering on-screen digital advertising
“We are excited about this
partnership and the opportunities it brings to all involved,” said Ron Krueger,
President and COO of Southern Theatres. “Providing more engaging, memorable and
responsive experiences to our guests is a top priority. Allure and CEN enable
us to continue to innovate and offer exciting new ways to enjoy the movies in
our theatre environments.”
“As today’s tech-savvy millennial
audiences increasingly expect more engaging and personalized entertainment experiences,
the challenge is to deliver them in fully integrated, thoughtful and innovative
ways; from the moment they step inside the lobby to the closing credits of
their favorite movie,” added Kevin Romano, executive vice president of Global
Media at Allure. “As evidenced by our recent announcement regarding integrating
ThinAire’s Internet of Things technology into our Experiential Media Network,
we are creating a platform for theatres, studios and advertisers to better engage
and relate to consumers through immersive place-based and mobile technology. We
are pleased to partner with the Southern Theatres organization and look forward
to our collaboration.”
Allure and its Christie
Experiential Network (CEN) draw upon Christie’s more than 85 years of
experience in the exhibition industry as well as Allure’s extensive portfolio and
experience with digital signage theatre deployments in offering the world’s
first fully-integrated, dynamic and immersive digital out-of-home network that connects
brands and studios with today’s sophisticated consumers. CEN can help advertisers
increase their reach, engage consumers and drive response, all with measurable
and attributable results. Exhibitors can expand upon existing networks or
install new signage to generate incremental revenues. The experiential network
team manages all aspects of the network including sales, content creation,
interactive programming, deployment, nationwide monitoring, and maintenance.
