GUITAMMER SECURES THIRD THEATER INSTALLATION IN CHINA FOR BUTTKICKER® TECHNOLOGY AT LUMIÈRE PAVILIONS FACILITY


100 Auditorium Seats and Featured VIP Section at Beijing Multiplex to be Enabled with “4D” Entertainment Experience Reflecting Growing Relationship with China’s Leading Luxury Cinema Operator


Westerville OH, May 1, 2012

The Guitammer Company (OTC BB: GTMM), a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience for audiences, announced today that it has secured a third theater installation with Sichuan Lumiere Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumière Pavilions) of Beijing, China.  The new installation will include all 100 seats and a special VIP seating area in one of five auditoriums at Lumière Pavilions’ five screen multiplex in Beijing, in the core area of Fangcaodi, the second circle of Beijing.  The agreement follows earlier agreements for Lumière Pavilions’ theaters in Nanjing in 2011 and in Shenyang, North China (scheduled to open this summer).  With the installation at the Beijing theater later this year, Lumière Pavilions will feature over 400seats in three auditoriums which offer Guitammer’s ButtKicker “4D” experience.

ButtKicker-enhanced entertainment experiences are featured in movie theaters, simulation rides, dance floors, planetariums, science centers, amusement parks and attractions all over the world including on over 9,000 seats at more than 80 screens in 11 countries.  Audiences at these facilities experience first-hand the excitement, impacts, special effects and bone-rattling bass which contribute to ButtKicker’s proprietary “4D” immersive entertainment experience.

Jimmy Wu, founder and CEO of Lumière Pavilions, commented, “Following a careful evaluation of many products that purport to deliver a ‘4D’ entertainment experience it was evident that the ButtKicker solution offered far and away the most comprehensive and fully immersive experience for our guests.  The success of our first installation of ButtKicker products at our theater in Nanjing confirms that audiences are thrilled with this new, engaging entertainment experience.  We’re pleased to be adding ButtKicker in our Beijing theater as well as the near-term rollout of the product at our Sheyang theater as we’re confident that guest experiences at these facilities will match the tremendous response we have received from current installations. 

“The accurate and realistic ButtKicker ‘4D’ effect is an excellent complement to the quality theater offerings we provide our guests and we believe there is a near-term opportunity to expand the number of our seats that feature this experience.  We are also evaluating other areas of our theaters that can be enhanced with the ButtKicker sensory effect and are beginning to explore opportunities to work with Guitammer to bring the ButtKicker experience into our theater guests’ homes with the wireless ButtKicker Kit consumer product.”  

Mark Luden, CEO of Guitammer stated, “We are delighted to further expand our relationship with Mr. Wu and his exceptional organization as we share their commitment to deliver innovative cinema experiences in luxurious surroundings.  Lumière Pavilions consistently sets the bar higher to deliver a highly realistic and engaging experience for their guests and we look forward to working closely to further evolve our relationship from that of vendor, to valued partner in the growing Chinese theater and home theater markets.”
