Six months & 64 new D-BOX movie auditorium: A strong start to 2023

July 11, 2023

With the month of July being now underway, we can officially say that we’re more than halfway through 2023!


In the first six months of the year, D-BOX has worked hard to enlarge our global footprint and has had lots of success. As a matter of fact, 64 new D-BOX screens have been added in different locations around the world from January to June!


Part of this success is due to a recent contract extension with Ecco Cine Supply and Kinopolis, which secures our partnership with them through 2028. With 11 sites currently in operation, Kinopolis has 33 D-BOX screens, more than 450 classic haptic seats and has sold more than 150,000 D-BOX tickets in 2022! In addition to the contract renewal, a new Kinopolis site will be opening in Homburg, Germany, later this summer—making this contract one crucial to the success of D-BOX.


On top of the contract extension with Ecco & Kinopolis, four other partners have opened new D-BOX screens   in the first half of the year. All of these new seats use G5, our latest generation of high-fidelity haptic systems!


When all our efforts are calculated, 1,389 new or upgraded D-BOX seats are in operation that either didn’t exist or that weren’t upgraded prior to 2023—which is 1,389 more people who can be immersed in every moment of their movies with a thrilling premium experience.
