WESTERVILLE, OH and HANGZHOU, CHINA--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2013) - The Guitammer Company (
This new installation will be a retro-fit upgrade that will add the ButtKicker "4D" system to all 330 seats in one auditorium of Lumière's existing eleven auditorium theater complex in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Following the installation, the total number of Lumière Pavilions seats that feature Guitammer's ButtKicker immersive technology will increase to approximately 1,380 seats in eight different locations, with additional projects planned.
Guitammer's solution can be added to almost any existing theater seating, a distinct advantage over other offerings that require the costly installation of new seats. Combined with the tremendous results achieved after previous installations, this "retro-fit" differentiator was a key reason behind Lumière's decision to upgrade this existing auditorium.
Mark Luden, President of Guitammer, stated, "After hearing of the many positive responses Lumière received from its patrons who experienced our ButtKicker '4D' theater, it is no surprise that the imprint of our exciting technology continues to grow in China. I expect our international footprint will continue to expand as cinemas around the globe seek out and invest in new technologies that provide a differentiated and enhanced user experience."

Audiences at these facilities get to experience first-hand the excitement, impacts, special effects and bone-rattling bass that contribute to ButtKicker's proprietary immersive "4D" patent-protected technology.
