THX Adds 128 New Screens Around the Globe

Century Theatres' Century Bella Terra in Huntington Beach, Calif. and the Kinepolis Nancy, France (March 15, 2006)

THX Ltd., the leading provider of technologies, certification programs and quality assurance standards for the entertainment industry, today announced at ShoWest that it has added 128 new screens to THX Certified Cinemas around the globe over the past year. The THX Certified Cinema program continues to experience growth in the emerging markets of Asia, South America and Europe, as well as the U.S. The list of new THX Certified Cinemas includes some of the world's premier venues, such as Century Theatres' Century Bella Terra in Huntington Beach, Calif. and the Kinepolis Nancy, France.

THX Certified Cinemas are designed for moviegoers who are passionate about films and demand a state-of-the-art cinematic presentation. In a THX Certified Cinema, the auditorium environment has been designed from the ground up to meet the rigid standards set by THX for presentation excellence. THX works closely with cinema owners and architects to ensure speaker placement and positioning, and that equipment and acoustic performance can accurately deliver movie sound and visuals exactly like they were produced in the post-production studio. This offers moviegoers a window into filmmakers' minds, enabling audiences to experience their true artistic vision.
