Middle East circuit Grand Cinemas selects Volfoni as 3D technology partner


Volfoni was selected by Grand Cinemas as their 3D technology partner for the provisioning and rollout of over 40 screens for 3D cinema technology. Grand Cinemas is the leading cinema chain in Lebanon, Jordan and Kuwait.

Grand Cinemas will deploy a combination of Volfoni’s 3D cinema technology products, including the SmartCrystal™ Cinema NEO series and the SmartCrystal™ Diamond series. The initial deployment will be for Grand Cinema’s new state-of-the-art multiplex to be opened in ABC Mall in Verdun, Lebanon in August 2017. Later deployments will be used to upgrade and replace existing 3D cinema products from a leading competitor with Volfoni products.

“We are thrilled to partner with Volfoni for our 3D cinema technology rollout in Lebanon,” said Jean Ramia, managing director of Grand Cinemas. “Grand Cinemas is an innovator in the market and Volfoni is perfectly positioned to support our growth. The quality, performance and cost-effectiveness of their product, will allow us to rollout 3D capabilities to more screens. This will ultimately benefit our audience with brighter 3D projections and deliver on our commitment of ‘Always Entertaining’ our audiences.”
