LONGUEUIL, QC, April 21 - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (TSX: DBO), a leader in innovative motion technology, announced today its first agreement with Cobb Theatres to equip its Pinnacle 14 Theatre in Gulf Shores, Alabama with 21 D-BOX MFX Seats.

The Pinnacle 14 is the first location in the state to feature the immersive D-BOX motion technology and will be introduced to theatre guests later this month.

"Cobb Theatres has a strong presence in the southeast, which is a region of the U.S. where we are consistently gaining market share," said President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "This is our first collaboration with Cobb Theatres and we anticipate our partnership will continue to evolve."

"We take pride in offering the ultimate entertainment experience with the highest quality audio and visual technologies," said Chief Operating Officer of Cobb Theatres, Jeremy P. Welman.
