4D Cinema Innovator Mediamation, Inc. Expands Footprint In Domestic & Global Markets with Greatest Strides in China

Twenty New Theatres Installed Throughout China And Additional Fifteen-Twenty Commissioned By China’s Dadi Cinema Group; Plus New Sales in Thailand, Japan, Kuwait, Egypt, and United States Build Momentum For MX4D® Brand
Riding a wave of enthusiasm and demand for 4D cinema technology world-wide, next-generation interactive technology house MediaMation, Inc. (MMI) of Torrance, CA, USA announces the recent inking of numerous domestic and international deals, marking this one of the busiest last two quarters in the company’s 25-year history.

Topping off a flurry of sales activity, MMI just reached an agreement with China’s Dadi Cinema Group for 15-20 MX4D® theatres to be installed in 2016.  Dadi Cinema Group currently has 300 theatres with more than 15,000 screens and 180,000 seats.
 
Observes Heather Blair, Head of Cinema Sales: “It is exhilarating, watching our current cinema partners grow and add more MX4D® screens because they are doing well.  It’s also tremendously exciting when our partners introduce us to new cinemas around the globe, as they explain adding MX4D® has been great for their attendance numbers!”
 
MX4D® is MediaMation’s uniquely branded “4D” motion and special effects (EFX) system. In general, 4D refers to a new “immersive” cinema technology which allows movie-goers to experience big Hollywood “blockbusters,” as well as locally produced major films, in a new way via the addition of moving seats, air/water blasts, leg/neck ticklers, fog, seat/back pokers, seat rumblers, and other special effects that emanate from specially designed theatre seats, or from inside the theatre itself. These multiple EFX are programmed to both sync with and enhance the action on the screen and sounds in the theatre for a more exciting and realistic movie-going experience.
 
Following is a break-down of MMI’s most recent sales by continent:
 
North America
National Amusements – Showcase Cinema de Lux Randolph
Building upon the highly successful summer 2015 debut of its MediaMation MX4D® Theatre in Revere, outside Boston, MA, the major exhibitor is adding a second MX4D® installation in May 2016 at Showcase Cinema de Lux Randolph, also located in the Boston suburbs.
 
China – 20 MX4D® Theatres Installed in Thirteen Chinese Cities;  Plus 15-20 Newly Announced
In Q4 2015 and Q1 2016, MMI expanded its presence in the Chinese market by adding a total of 20 MX4D® different installations scattered across thirteen cities, with the largest single installation being a 164-seat theatre.  Numerous chains have adapted MMI’s technology, including Wanda Cinemas, Jinyi Cinemas, Luxin Cinemas, Omnijoi Cinemas and many more.  The aforementioned Dadi Cinema Group deal will bring the total of new MX4D® theatres in China to as many as 40 and counting.
 
Asia
Sony Business Solutions Corporation – Movie on Yamagata; Japan
Fueled by the huge popularity of MX4D® in Japan, MMI’s exclusive Japanese distributor (Sony Business Solutions Corporation) sold a 112-seat theatre to company Movie on Yamagata, with installation slated for Q2 2016.
