Motion Theater Seats Move Audiences in Texas

    D-BOX Motion Code(TM)Technology Debuts at Austin Movie Theater

    LONGUEUIL, QC, May 11  - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (DBO.A on
the TSX Venture Exchange) announced today that it will debut its
motion-activated theater seats at Galaxy Highland Theatres in Austin, Texas.
    Moviegoers will feel as if they are living the action - experiencing
every explosion, car chase and even flight scene right from their very own
theater seat. This realistic, immersive experience is created with
breakthrough D-BOX Motion Code(TM) technology in which the movie is coded,
frame-by-frame, to create customized Motion Effects resulting in subtle,
refined movements that work in perfect sync with the action taking place
    "We are adding a new dimension to movie viewing," stated President and
CEO of D-BOX Technologies, Claude Mc Master. "Not since the creation of
surround sound and 3D has there been a movie theater innovation that changes
the movie viewing experience like D-BOX Motion Code(TM) technology. The
movements that these seats make are sophisticated and refined; moviegoers will
not be jostled around the entire time, rather they will feel much more a part
of the movie."
    Galaxy Highland Theatres is the first theater in Texas to feature D-BOX's
innovative Motion Systems and the fourth location in the U.S. The theater will
equip 22 seats in its auditorium with the company's motion technology powered
by D-BOX Motion Effects, causing seats to jolt, swerve and tilt with onscreen
    While audience members will experience motion during action sequences,
the seats will remain still during the quieter, dialogue-driven scenes and
come equipped with individual adjustable settings to customize each
    "We are excited and pleased to once again bring our patrons the latest
enhancement to the movie-going experience," said Rafe Cohen, president of
Galaxy Theatres. "The D-Box Motion System has to be tried to be believed as it
makes the viewer a part of the action. Try the D-Box seat and be immersed in
the action."
    Already a sensation in Hollywood and Arizona, D-BOX's Motion Systems were
revealed to the public with the first motion picture debut, Universal
Pictures' blockbuster, Fast & Furious, in March. Survey results gathered by an
independent company during opening weekend are conclusive - the D-BOX
experience earned an unprecedented 99 percent satisfaction rating with the
majority of moviegoers who paid a premium for their D-BOX MFX seating, rating
their experience as "excellent."
