Frank Theatres Selects GDC Technology for Digital Cinema Conversion

GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world leading digital cinema solution provider, announced today Frank Theatres (“Frank”), a division of the Frank Family Entertainment Group, has selected GDC SX-2000A Digital Cinema Servers with Integrated Media Block (“IMB”) for its digital conversion with NEC projectors. This deployment covers close to 80 renovated and redesigned screens and an additional 36 newly constructed screens, which will be completed by the end of 2012 or by mid 2013 respectively.
 
Celebrating 100 years of “bringing families together”, the Frank Family Entertainment Group was founded in 1906 by Samuel Frank of Philadelphia, PA. The Company has owned, operated, developed and managed over 150 entertainment businesses. Frank, incorporated in 1921, introduced “talkie films” to the Philadelphia area. It built the first “Twin” theatre in the United States in 1966 and developed the Towne 16 Stadium Cinema in 1986, which was one of the earliest Mega-Plex Cinemas in New Jersey which reintroduced stadium seating backs. Frank is dedicated to providing a movie-going experience which is first class, currently operating 256 screens in 25 theatres located across the East Coast of the United States.
 
“We’re always open to exploring new technologies that can enhance our customers’ experience when they visit our theatres,” said Bruce Frank, President and CEO of Frank Theatres. “GDC servers pave the way for innovative digital technology which is a perfect match for what we want to be able to accomplish moving our circuit into the future.”

Entertainment Supply & Technologies (“ES&T”) is supplying all digital projection and sound equipment, as well as GDC servers to Frank for its digital migration. “The GDC Tech team has been an exceptional supply partner for ES&T and its digital deployment for long-standing exhibitors in the cinema industry. ES&T contracts currently in production through the end of 2012 include many systems to be deployed by ES&T Technical Services using GDC servers and IMB’s as part of its digital cinema program,” said Bruce Schneiter, Vice President of Technical Services for ES&T. “We are excited about moving forward with new cinematic technologies and embrace the opportunity to provide a wonderful outcome and presentation for our exhibitor clients as well as their patrons with the move into digital cinema.”

“It’s a pleasure to have been chosen by Frank Theaters for its digital conversion. GDC Tech and Frank are both committed to high quality products that deliver the finest cinematic experience possible.” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Tech. “GDC Tech relishes the opportunity to further develop this partnership with Frank and ES&T who continue to demonstrate its expertise in assisting exhibitors in converting to digital.”
