The platform offers film distributors and content owners a robust and more cost-effective way to deliver content to theaters.  
 
“Ronnie has been a trusted exhibition partner for many years,” said Joel Davis, VP & COO, Premiere Cinemas. “DCU was able to install DCU Connect at all Premiere Cinemas sites within 24 hours and make an immediate impact to our theater operations by decreasing DCP content delivery costs.”
 
“As a former DCU client, I was always impressed with the company’s quality of service. I’m excited to join DCU and having Premiere Cinemas and Epic Theatres a part of our growing DCU Connect network,” said Ronnie Ycong, EVP & GM Americas, DCU. “They are top-notch exhibitors that expands our DCU Connect network to additional U.S. cities across Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and New Mexico.”
