WESTERVILLE, OH, CHENGDU and SHENYANG, CHINA, July 9, 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 its fourth and fifth theater installations with Sichuan Lumière Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumière Pavilions) of Beijing, China. The two new installations will include an aggregate of approximately 240 new ButtKicker “4D” seats at Lumière’s second Shenyang location (in North China) and at Raffles City Lumière Pavilions in Chengdu, which are expected to open before calendar 2012 year end. In addition to these commitments and reflecting their focus on providing a premium experience for their cinema guests, Lumière Pavilions intends to install ButtKicker-brand transducers in at least one auditorium at all new Lumière cinemas and also plans to add ButtKicker-brand transducers in the largest auditorium at the Hangzhou Intime Lumière Pavilions, its first opened cinema.
Jimmy Wu, founder and CEO of Lumière Pavilions, stated, “We are delighted to further expand our relationship with Guitammer by adding additional screens to our growing list of auditoriums that feature the exciting ButtKicker technology. Our inaugural ButtKicker-enabled location in Nanjing continues to pack in patrons and the overwhelming response we have seen has encouraged us to further expand Lumière’s ‘4D’ ButtKicker footprint to help satisfy the demands of our customers for unique and immersive experiences when they visit one of our luxurious cinemas.”
Including an aggregate of previously completed and committed future installations, Lumière Pavilions has increased its total to approximately 640 of Guitammer’s ButtKicker “4D” experience seats, located in five of its China-based auditoriums, which also includes Nanjing (opened in 2011) and a recently announced Beijing location (VIP seating in a Fangcaodi multiplex – in Beijing’s second circle).
ButtKicker-enhanced entertainment experiences are featured around the globe in movie theaters, simulation rides, dance floors, planetariums, science centers, amusement parks and other attractions, including 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 that contribute to ButtKicker’s proprietary “4D” immersive, patent-protected technology.
Guitammer CEO Mark Luden added, “Lumière Pavilions is fast becoming one of our most loyal and prolific customers and we are very pleased that Jimmy and his team have seen the benefits of rolling out our ButtKicker technology. Their patrons are clearly enjoying the memorable experiences at their circuit’s high-end theatres throughout China, the world’s fastest growing cinema market. We also continue to evaluate ways to take our relationship with Lumière to the next level as we jointly explore ways to partner and capitalize on helping bring the unique ButtKicker experience into their theater guests’ homes with our wide range of ButtKicker consumer products.”
