TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/13 -- AudienceView has been selected as the new technology partner of the Hale Centre Theatre in Gilbert, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. A seven-year contract was signed with the mid-sized theater within just 30 days following a referral from fellow venue the Hale Centre Theatre of West Valley (Salt Lake) City, Utah. The Hale Centre Theatre has a legendary heritage as the longest continuously running, privately owned and operated theatre company in the United States.
"We reviewed other solutions in the marketplace, but when we saw what our fellow theatre in Salt Lake was doing we were immediately certain that we too had to work with AudienceView," said David Hale Dietlein, owner and producer of the Hale Centre Theatre. "By leveraging AudienceView's robust capabilities, we will enhance the overall patron experience for more than 55,000 guests each year. The solution will also help us drive new revenue opportunities, streamline our business operations and reduce operating costs."
Arizona's Hale Centre Theatre selected AudienceView because of its modern technology, which will support the organization to better serve its patrons and provide a straightforward online ticketing/e-commerce experience. In addition, the venue highly values AudienceView's seamless integration across all sales channels, including mobile and social media, season package functionalities, built-in marketing and patron engagement capabilities, and overall service best practices.
"We are excited to have the Arizona Hale Centre join our growing family of North American mid-sized theatres," said Jeff Koets, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AudienceView. "Our technology is cost effective for theatres of all sizes. AudienceView's rich feature set helps any entertainment organization stand out from others as they compete for today's discretionary consumer dollar. We look forward to a long successful relationship with the Hale as it continues to provide patrons with the finest theatre experiences in an affordable, family friendly environment."
The Hale Centre Theatre was founded from humble beginnings in Glendale, California in 1943 when Nathan and Ruth Hale opened the doors. The theater that night had room for 110 guests but only six were on hand for opening night. From there, the family of Hale Theatres has grown to five venues in three different states. Each venue is still owned by a member of Ruth and Nathan's family.
The Hale Centre Theatre in Gilbert, Arizona is owned and operated by David Hale Dietlein and his wife Corrin. It has been in operation for more than 10 years, staging shows such as Bye Bye Birdie, Hairspray, Damn Yankees, 39 Steps, and many others from its warm, family friendly environment. Each season, this theater puts on full-scale performances that range from classic shows and musicals to comedies and youth productions. Over the years, the theatre has taken home more than 30 AriZoni Theatre Awards for both technical and creative accomplishments and successes.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
