Digiplex names Chuck Goldwater senior VP

Jan 10, 2013

Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (Digiplex), an exhibitor devoted to transforming movie theatres into digital entertainment centers, announced the appointment of Chuck Goldwater as its senior VP, effective immediately. Goldwater had joined the company’s board of directors in early 2012, prior to the completion of its successful initial public offering.

Goldwater is an entertainment industry veteran with over three decades of cinema experience. At the end of 2012, as the domestic digital-cinema rollout business came to a close, he ended his seven years of work at Cinedigm, where he served as president of its Media Services Group. Prior to his tenure at Cinedigm, he was CEO of Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI), a joint venture of the seven major Hollywood studios, which established the technical specifications and initial business planning for the worldwide implementation of digital cinema.

Goldwater has also held senior management positions at a number of leading theatre circuits including USA Cinemas, National Amusements and Loews Theatres, and he served as president/CEO of Mann Theatres and president at Clearview Cinemas. He was honored as an inductee into the ShowEast Hall of Fame in 2012.

Digiplex chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “We are delighted that Chuck has agreed to join our senior management team, as he brings a tremendous wealth of relevant experience and numerous important industry relationships to his new role at Digiplex. He has particular expertise in digital-cinema deployment and with alternative entertainment programming, two key areas of importance to our fast-growing exhibition chain’s future success. Chuck also fits in very well with other executive team members, as he worked with many of us at both Cinedigm and Clearview Cinemas.”
