Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. will provide support services for independent cinemas in Australia and New Zealand.
The agreement between Woodland Hills-based Cinedigm Digital and the Independent Cinemas Association of Australia covers 110 locations with 500 screens.
Partnering with Cinedigm shows a commitment by the theater owners to advancing digital rollout in Australia and New Zealand, the company maintains.
Cinedigm will provide virtual print-fee contracts and administration, theatre management systems and other support resources to the association.
“We look forward to helping the ICAA member exhibitors bring the many benefits of digital cinema, including 3D programming, live sporting and music events and alternative content programming to their current movie-going consumers,” said Cinedigm Chairman and CEO Chris McGurk in a prepared statement.
