GDC Technology chosen by ShowBiz Cinemas
Las Vegas—GDC Technology Ltd., a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced at CinemaCon 2016 another deployment of GDC Technology solutions for ShowBiz Cinemas at its new Fall Creek entertainment center in Houston, Texas.
When ShowBiz Cinemas opened its first entertainment center in Baytown, Texas in late October 2015, it had unique advantages over the competition: 10 movie theatres, 14 bowling lanes and a full bar, not to mention a passion for providing the best customer service, and a like-minded technology partner in GDC Technology. ShowBiz Cinemas founder Kevin Mitchell, a third-generation cinema owner, is following the successful playbook of his predecessors and GDC Technology in opening additional entertainment centers.
To ensure high standards are maintained throughout the moviegoing experience, ShowBiz Cinemas chose to deploy the SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™ (SX-3000 IMB™) with Enterprise Series Storage. In addition, it selected the GDC TMS-2000 Theatre Management System, the ultimate next-generation solution with over 50 new features, to provide centralized control for the Baytown and Fall Creek complexes.
ShowBiz Cinemas has been praised by local residents for transforming typical movie theatres into high-caliber entertainment destinations for all ages. Fall Creek is ShowBiz Cinemas’ fourth location to feature SDX – Superior Digital Experience – a state-of-the-art premium theatre concept powered by GDC Technology, providing the best moviegoing experience available today.
“Our guests have come to expect only the best experience when visiting ShowBiz Cinemas,” said Mitchell, president & CEO. “The Fall Creek entertainment center represents our vision of delivering an expanded customer-focused experience that includes movies, bowling, games, food and fun. We worked closely with GDC Technology to identify the technical solutions needed to power our newest concepts.”
Strategic partnerships are at the core of the GDC service delivery philosophy. “Our ongoing partnership with ShowBiz Cinemas is a collaborative effort focused on achieving their long-term goals,” said Tony Adamson, senior vice president of strategic planning, GDC Technology USA. “Their trust in GDC products and services has allowed us both to succeed. We congratulate Kevin and his team on the opening of their second entertainment center and look forward to working with them as they continue expanding their innovative concept.”
