Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., a global leader in digital cinema, announced yesterday that they have entered into a long-term VPF deployment agreement with SR Entertainment Group. The agreement will enable the conversion of SR Entertainment Group’s theatres to digital cinemas under the terms of Cinedigm’s agreements with all the major studios. This conversion, financed by Cinedigm, will deploy 81 Cinedigm-Certified™ screens across six existing sites, with completion expected by this summer.
