GDC announces newest dealer Sonic and its first deployment of GDC servers to US cinemas

As a strategic move to consolidate its position in the US market, GDC Technology (“GDC”) announces further expansion of its cinema dealer and service network with the addition of Sonic Equipment Company (“Sonic”), the well known Kansas-based digital cinema integration company specializing in independent cinemas.
Founded in the early 1970’s, Sonic has been a cinema solution provider servicing customers across the Midwest from Ohio to Texas. It has since grown into a company servicing nearly 400 screens in 8 states and has recently become a major digital cinema integrator for independent movie theatre chains (for CBG members). In its push for digital conversion among independent theatre owners, Sonic has created a Complete Digital Package which offers financing options and a low-cost service program.
Soon after becoming GDC’s partner for digital roll out in the US, Sonic was quick to secure its first contract to deploy GDC servers to cinemas in the country. Sonic has since either finished or in the process of deploying GDC servers in the following movie theatres:
  • Chisholm Trail 8, Newton, KS
  • Keystone Cinemas, Bardstown, KY
  • Guymon, Guymon, MO
  • Missouri Cinema Six, Clinton, MO
  • Frontier Stage Theatre, Hill City, KS
  • Dream Theatre, Rusell, KS
  • Kickingbird Cinema, Edmond, OK
  • Norbert Benoit Center Theatre, Smith Center, KS
“Sonic offers a full range of products and services, from simple hardware sales to financing and maintenance packages,” says Eric L. Olson, director of operations, Sonic Equipment Company.  “Adding GDC digital cinema servers to our line of offerings was a natural fit for us. GDC servers have been on the market for ten years and show the highest level of reliability available today.”

“GDC’s unbending commitment to highest quality manufacturing and continuous innovation in bringing advance features such as Closed Captioning, Emergency Handling such as fast moving of movie from one auditorium to another within a few minutes and RealD’s 3D EQ to the digital cinema industry has won us many fans in the US,” said Dr. Man-Nang CHONG, founder and CEO of GDC Technology “GDC is happy to add high profile Sonic to our growing list of high quality cinema dealers in the US.”
