Lumière Pavilions Jump Starts Chinese New Year with Eighth Theater Installation of Guitammer’s Patented “4D” Technology

Leading Chinese Luxury Cinema Operator Increases Availability of Guitammer’s Immersive Entertainment Experience to Nearly 1,400 Seats
The Guitammer Company (OTCQB: GTMM), a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience for audiences, announced today that it has secured its eighth theater installation with Sichuan Lumière Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumière Pavilions) of Beijing, China. 
 
This new installation will be a retro-fit upgrade that will add the ButtKicker “4D” system to all 330 seats in one auditorium of Lumière’s existing eleven auditorium theater complex in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Following the installation, the total number of Lumière Pavilions seats that feature Guitammer’s ButtKicker immersive technology will increase to approximately 1,380 seats in eight different locations, with additional projects planned.
 
Guitammer’s solution can be added to almost any existing theater seating, a distinct advantage over other    offerings that require the costly installation of new seats. Combined with the tremendous results achieved after previous installations, this “retro-fit”  differentiator was a key reason behind Lumière’s decision to upgrade this existing auditorium.
 
Mark Luden, President of Guitammer, stated, “After hearing of the many positive responses Lumière received from its patrons who experienced our ButtKicker ‘4D’ theater, it is no surprise that the imprint of our exciting technology continues to grow in China. I expect our international footprint will continue to expand as cinemas around the globe seek out and invest in new technologies that provide a differentiated and enhanced user experience.” 

To watch and listen to Guitammer’s interview with the general manager of Nanjing Cinema, Lumière Pavilions, visit http://www.guitammer.com/michellezhou.html.

Over 10,000 seats at more than 86 entertainment locations in 11 countries are now ButtKicker-enabled, including movie theaters in the U.S., Russia, South Korea and China.  Audiences at these facilities get to experience first-hand the excitement, impacts, special effects and bone-rattling bass that contribute to ButtKicker’s proprietary immersive “4D” patent-protected technology.
