Digital Cinema Implementation Partners Names Richard Manzione as President and CEO

Board Cites Manzione’s Extensive Industry Experience and Proven Leadership Skills in Making its Decision
The Board of Directors of Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, LLC (DCIP) announced today that Richard Manzione, the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), has been named President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) effective March 1, 2011. 

After completing an extensive four-month recruitment and interview process, the Board cited Manzione’s proven track record of leadership in the organization, extensive industry experience and his commitment to DCIP’s exhibitors, studio partners and employees in making its decision. DCIP was formed in February 2007 by AMC Entertainment Inc., Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and Regal Entertainment Group, the three largest theatrical exhibitors in the United States, to facilitate the deployment of digital cinema projectors to movie theatres in the United States and Canada. 

As COO of DCIP, Manzione has been managing the business, supported by DCIP’s management team, since the departure of the company’s former CEO in October 2010. Manzione has been with DCIP since its inception and was instrumental in the company’s formation and launch. He has managed all aspects of DCIP’s operations, including infrastructure and systems development, finance and accounting, digital equipment deployment and administrative and technology services. Manzione is an exhibition industry veteran with over 25 years of experience, most recently for Loews Cineplex Entertainment prior to its merger with AMC Entertainment, serving in the roles of Senior Vice President of Strategic Development and Vice President of Operations. 

“I am honored to have the opportunity to continue leading DCIP," said Manzione. "We have just completed our first full year of operations and have deployed over 6,700 digital systems across North America. Digital projection provides movie-goers with improved presentation and also enables newer technologies such as 3-D and alternative entertainment options to thrive. Our priority will be to maintain our seamless digital rollout while continuing to be a strong and committed partner to the exhibitors and studios as they leverage the growing digital infrastructure.” 

“We identified all of the qualifications required for the next leader of DCIP,” said Gerry Lopez, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment Inc. “We’re happy to say that Rich exceeds these qualifications and we are confident he brings the right mix of proven leadership, industry experience and acumen to the role. He also brought the advantage of a seamless transition to the position.” 

“Rich has done an outstanding job of operating DCIP and served as a great leader during this transition period,” said DCIP Board member Alan Stock, CEO of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. “Having worked with him since the formation of DCIP, I believe he is clearly the right person to lead our company forward. Digital cinema will continue to provide an enhanced entertainment experience for our guests, and we are pleased to have a leader like Rich help us achieve our vision.”

“Rich is the ideal leader to guide DCIP at a critical juncture in our history,” said DCIP Board member Amy Miles, CEO of Regal Entertainment Group. “He has already helped place DCIP in a very strong position as the world leader in digital deployment, which will continue to enrich our customers’ movie-going experience and greatly enhance our business and our industry.” 

DCIP has deployed more than 6,700 digital projection systems in more than 1,000 theatres since March 2010 and is tracking well ahead of its planned deployment schedule to digitize nearly 15,000 screens in the United States and Canada over the next several years. 


About Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, LLC:
DCIP is a joint venture owned equally by exhibition industry leaders AMC Entertainment Inc., Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and Regal, a subsidiary of Cineworld Group plc. Formed over 10 years ago to facilitate the upgrade from 35mm to digital projection technology, DCIP has overseen the conversion of more than 18,000 screens across the United States, Canada and Latin America, and continues to provide management services and facilitate information flow for its deployment footprint and exhibition and distribution partners. 
  
As part of the monumental transition from film print to digital technology, DCIP developed extensive expertise in managing vast amounts of information throughout its digital network, which led to the creation of Cinergy, a scalable centralized enterprise software suite developed to help exhibitors and distributors better monitor and manage cinema execution, presentation and quality assurance, utilizing information that was not centrally available prior to the industry’s conversion.
