Digiplex to present major Hollywood releases in Spanish

March 22, 2013

Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. announced that select Digiplex Destinations theater locations will begin presenting special engagements of major Hollywood movie releases with both Spanish and English soundtracks.

Digiplex has already leveraged digital technology to present entertainment alternatives ranging from live sporting events to Broadway shows and opera from The Met to audiences around the country. Now, the same technology is being harnessed to present mainstream movies in different languages.

The first movies in Spanish from Digiplex series include G.I. Joe: Retaliation April 1, 8 and 15; Oblivion on April 22 and 29; Iron Man 3 on May 6 and 13; Star Trek—Into Darkness on May 20, and the animated family feature Epic on May 27. Additional titles will be announced as they become available. Many of the titles will feature Spanish audio tracks as well as English subtitles, enabling speakers of both languages to follow the storylines.

Bud Mayo, Digiplex president and CEO, noted, "The Latino populations in San Diego, San Bernardino and Berks Counties have grown substantially in recent years. These special engagements will give multi-generational Latino families the opportunity to enjoy great motion picture entertainment together by bridging language gaps. For students of Spanish who are native English speakers, these films also present a new and engaging way to improve their skills."

Mayo stated that Digiplex will be responsive to audience interest by expanding the number of movie titles, show schedules and the number of locations offering the movies. Movies in the series will only be rated G, PG or PG-13 to be as inclusive as possible and offer a mix of family-friendly animation, action, adventure, comedy and drama.

Participating theatres offering Spanish-language movies include: Digiplex Apple Valley in Apple Valley, CA; Digiplex Mission Valley in San Diego, CA, and 
Digiplex Fairgrounds Square, in Reading, PA. For more information, visit www.digiplexdest.com.
