on May 06, 2013

Fountain Valley, CA - Moving iMage Technologies (MiT) continues to support the small and medium size exhibitors throughout the industry. MIT, with its partners in VPF finance and technology industries, offered a creative digital cinema solution crafted specifically for converting Act V Theaters' site in Cornelius Oregon. The flexible package was created to accommodate the special requirements needed to convert the Cornelius Cinema multiplex to digital.

"We are placing our customers in the best possible opportunity with respect to digital cinema conversions. With help from friends like Robert Perkins, an independent cinema exhibitor himself and owner of Act V Theaters, MIT has been able to learn a great deal about the trials and tribulations of the independent. Our package of digital solutions reflects our knowledge and understanding of the independent exhibitor" says Tom Lipiec VP of Sales and Customer Service who works closely with both large and independent cinema chains.

While financing and technology can prove daunting to the independent cinema owners, operators like ACT V Theaters, known in their community as Cornelius Cinemas, push the boundaries of what independent operators provide to their cliental. Robert Perkins, president of ACT V likes to say "Digital Cinema is the future of Motion Picture Exhibition. The content, format and opportunities are constantly changing and being 100% digital gives us the flexibility to meet the demands of an ever-changing marketplace. Moving Image Technologies, LLC was enormously helpful getting us fully deployed. There were so many different technologies and applications to consider. It was great to have one source to help us assemble all the components in one place and then deliver our digital equipment package in total, ready for our discerning audience".
