Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (NasdaqCM: DCIN) (Digiplex), a fast-growing motion picture exhibitor dedicated to transforming movie theaters into digital entertainment centers, today announced the appointment of Chuck Goldwater as its Senior Vice President, effective immediately. Mr. Goldwater had joined the Company’s Board of Directors in early 2012, prior to the completion of its successful initial public offering (IPO).
Mr. Goldwater is an entertainment industry veteran with over three decades of cinema experience. At the end of 2012 as the domestic digital cinema rollout business came to a close he ended his seven years of work at Cinedigm where he had served as President of its Media Services Group. Prior to his tenure at Cinedigm he was Chief Executive Officer of Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI), a joint venture of the seven major Hollywood studios, which established the technical specifications and initial business planning for the worldwide implementation of digital cinema. Mr. Goldwater has also held senior management positions at a number of leading theater exhibitors including USA Cinemas, National Amusements and Loews Theatres, and he served as President/CEO of Mann Theatres and President at Clearview Cinemas. He was also honored as a recent inductee into the ShowEast (leading exhibition industry conference) Hall of Fame in 2012.
Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “We are delighted that Chuck has agreed to join our senior management team as he brings a tremendous wealth of relevant experience and numerous important industry relationships to his new role at Digiplex. He has particular expertise in digital cinema deployment and with alternative entertainment programming, two key areas of importance to our fast-growing exhibition chain’s future success. Chuck also fits in very well with other executive team members as he worked with many of us at both Cinedigm and Clearview Cinemas.”
