At Cinema Con 2024, Kaleidescape, maker of the ultimate movie platform for the luxury residential market for over twenty years, has announced that they are expanding into the commercial cinema market.

Kaleidescape claims that its platform can provide an alternative method to securely deliver library film releases to movie theaters just as it has done for residential home theater fans.

From Priscilla Morgan, COO, of Kaleidescape: “Kaleidescape’s secure media platform provides operational ease by enhancing flexibility and scalability for the exhibitor and offering access to a diverse array of content for their customers,..Much gratitude goes to our studio, exhibition, and technology partners for their innovation in embracing a new content delivery platform.” 

Exhibitors that have embraced the Kaleidescape platform so far include:

Tip: Kaleidescape also has a current agreement with one major Hollywood studio (unnamed so far) and is in the process of negotiating agreements with several others. 

From Rock Bagby, president & chief content, programming & development officer of B&B Theatres: “We are excited to work together on this new endeavor. B&B strives to be innovative, and we can’t wait to pilot this new technology with Kaleidescape and GDC.”

To further support Kaleidescape’s Cinema strategy, Kaleidescape has been working with technology partners to integrate with their TMS, to streamline an exhibitor’s workflow further. 

From Tony Adamson, senior vice president for GDC Technology: “Kaleidescape’s platform is a potential game changer for exhibitors, allowing easy activation of excess screen capacity, bringing a steady slate of library titles on demand…I am excited that GDC is the first TMS provider to integrate with the Kaleidescape platform.”

Kaleidescape claims that it is a solution that integrates easily into a movie complex, utilizing the same projectors and audio solutions already installed in the specific theater.

Kaleidescape’s movie platform enables secure delivery of library releases, with lossless audio and reference quality video. With access to a vast array of library content on demand, exhibitors can program additional movie screenings or movie marathons and curate special events. Moviegoers can enjoy watching their favorite movies or experiencing cinema classics on the big screen.
