Malco Theatres chooses Barco for digital conversion of Arkansas cinema multiplex
Digital cinema pioneer Barco announced today that Malco Theatres chose Barco and Dolby Laboratories, exclusively for one of its Arkansas complexes. Malco Theatres, one of the leading independent exhibitors in the US, is making digital cinema a reality by deploying Barco DP100 2K projectors and Dolby Digital Cinema systems in theatres. As its first step, Malco Theatres plans to install 12 screens with Barco 's digital cinema 2k projectors in its Malco Pinnacle Hills 12 cinema in Rogers, Arkansas in the Pinnacle Center. This is the first complex to have all Barco and Dolby Digital Cinema screens.
“These are exciting times for everyone involved in this deployment. We are pleased to be working with Barco and Dolby. Each and every new opportunity builds the relationships more and more,” said Michael Thompson, Vice President Operations & Technology, Malco Theatres.
