Bigger and Brighter in Texas with Barco and Santikos

In an agreement encompassing five remaining multiplexes, Santikos Theatres chooses a full range of Barco projectors for the completion of an exclusive circuit-wide digital cinema conversion.

Barco, a global leader in digital cinema technology, proudly announced today that San Antonio, Texas-based Santikos Theatres has selected Barco cinema projectors for their digital projection conversion of five additional multiplexes. As one of the nation's oldest and most highly-regarded exhibitors, Santikos selected the full spectrum of Barco digital projectors for the 62-screen conversion, including the DP-1200, DP-1500, DP-2000 and Barco's flagship DP-3000. 

Barco's comprehensive array of projector models proved to be the optimum, cost-effective solution for Santikos's varied applications and screen sizes. With the industry's brightest images and Texas Instruments' DLP Cinema® technology at the core, each Barco projector will enable Santikos Theatres to show both 2D and 3D films with ease. The digital cinema conversion is now underway at the five San Antonio locations: the Palladium, Mayan 13, Embassy 14, Rialto 14, and Silverado 16. 

“When we made the decision to convert our entire theatre circuit to Digital Projection, we underwent the process of comparing all the options available to us,” explained Arthur Seago, Director of Operations for the Santikos Theatres. “In the end, Barco was the clear choice, providing us with everything needed to take us to the next level in cinematic presentation. They brought to us the technology, quality, value and service that we strive to provide to our customers at all times.” 

“I'm proud Santikos Theatres selected Barco to be their partner for this important decision.” said Scott Freidberg, Vice President of Sales for Barco Digital Cinema. “Santikos was one of the first exhibitors to test digital presentations and we knew their selection criteria went beyond basic projector evaluation. Our goal was to provide this client a superior turnkey package of system hardware, operational support and world-class service. I'm confident we'll continue to meet their high expectations.”
