Eurasia Cinemas B.V. and XPAND will present the most optimal 3D experience to their audiences, supported by a host of newly produced Hollywood and independent studios content, becoming the latest trend in 3D movie-going entertainment.  Further enhancing the XPAND experience, the company will introduce this Fall/Winter, their newly designed glasses that are both sleek and contemporary and will house additional technology devices that will provide every exhibitor a long-life and cost-effective 3D product.
