A strong and growing partnership
Barco and Cinemark share a long, successful history in bringing movies to life with the latest cinema technologies, growing into a strong strategic partnership focused on delivering the optimal moviegoing experience to Cinemark’s patrons. Cinemark’s confidence in Barco was a key milestone in Barco’s history and has helped propel Barco into becoming the global market share leader in digital cinema projection.
Cinemark’s Founder and Executive Chairman, Lee Roy Mitchell, shares Barco’s vision for technology leadership designed to transform the moviegoing experience. “We highly value our relationship with Barco and Belgium. Our collaboration has resulted in some of the most exciting moments in cinema, and enabled Cinemark to achieve excellence in movie exhibition beyond our wildest dreams.”
Since signing an exclusive agreement in 2010 for the roll-out of digital cinema projectors, Barco has outfitted more than 5,500 screens for Cinemark in the United States and Latin America (among its close to 6,000 screens worldwide). The insights of the Cinemark team have played a vital role in Barco building leading world-class cinema technology solutions, with Barco and Cinemark jointly launching many industry firsts: the first commercial laser projector and the global première of Barco Escape.
“In terms of both strategic value and financial importance, our relationship with Cinemark is a shining example of Texas-Belgian business cooperation,” comments Eric Van Zele, Member of the Board of Directors for Barco. “We consider Cinemark to be an integral part of the Barco family and look forward to a bright, ever-expanding future with the company.”
