EPIC Theatres selects Barco as exclusive digital projector supplier for Clermont multiplex in US
Digital cinema pioneer Barco announced today that EPIC Theatres selected Barco digital projectors for the new all stadium, all digital facility. Epic Theaters of Clermont will be the first theatre in the Orlando market designed from the ground up for complete digital projection and 3D presentation. The new 16 screen Epic theatre is scheduled to open on 27 February 2009 bringing the best possible out-of-home entertainment experience to the Clermont area.
The new state-of-the-art theatre will open in time to play Dreamworks’ highly anticipated animated film “Monsters vs. Aliens” in 3D. In addition to offering the highest quality 3-D presentations in select auditoriums, EPIC of Clermont will also show exciting alternative content. Guests will experience live entertainment on the big screen featuring top concert tours such as “Hannah Montana” and “The Jonas Bros.”, operas including performances from the Metropolitan Opera and other entertainment such as professional sporting events.
EPIC is operated by third and fourth generation motion picture exhibitors who focus on the latest industry technologies to provide customers with exceptional presentation and service. Clint DeMarsh, VP of Purchasing for EPIC Theatres said, “We are pleased that Barco was selected to bring EPIC entertainment to the Clermont area. Digital projection provides a number of advantages over film and Barco brings the quality and expertise needed for our first all digital facility. Epic plans to deploy all digital complexes henceforth. In the next eighteen months, EPIC will more than double in size with the new construction that is planned."
"Epic Theatres is one of Barco's most forward-thinking customers," explains Terri Westhafer, Director of Business Development. "They are fully embracing the digital evolution and plan to open more all-digital multiplexes in 2009. Barco is proud to be a part of their growth and dynamic vision.”
