D-BOX Technologies Signs Deal with Muvico Entertainment for Two Additional Theatres

West Palm Beach and Chicago Area Theatres Latest to Offer D-BOX Motion Technology

LONGUEUIL, QC, March 28 - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (TSXV: DBO.A), a leader in innovative motion technology, announced today a new agreement with Muvico Entertainment for two new locations including a first in the Chicago area.

The Rosemont 18 theatre in Rosemont, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, will soon feature 36 D-BOX MFX Seats while the Parisian 20 theatre in West Palm Beach, Fla. will install a total of 30 seats, both set to be unveiled in the coming months.

"We are continuing to build on the successful foundation that we've established with Muvico Entertainment and further expand our footprint across the U.S.," said President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "While our presence in Florida is growing, this first Chicago area theatre provides us a platform to introduce the D-BOX experience on another level, in one of the nation's largest metropolitan areas."

Additionally, Muvico Entertainment's Thousand Oaks movie theatre, which introduced D-BOX in February, is preparing to install an additional 12 D-BOX MFX Seats to keep up with the demand.

"When customers come to Muvico it's a complete entertainment experience and with the addition of D-BOX at our theatres we're able to offer that extra excitement that moviegoers can't find anywhere else," said Muvico Entertainment CEO, Neil Bretan.
