Productive meetings


We met with several companies, which supply equipment for cinema theaters at the production exhibit, which was organized within the framework of the CinemaCon conference; we discussed the possibilities of manufacturing seats and film projection equipment in Russia.
At present, a tender is being prepared for the best offers from the major manufacturers and leaders on this market: Barco ( and Christie (
In addition, we are conducting negotiations with both the Kinomekhanika (Kinomechanics) and Kinoton Companies ( concerning digital equipment. In the near future, the Canadian company, Bruce Proctor, will present several offers on designing cinema theaters.
The meeting with Proctor himself made a big impression on me. Bruce is a guru in his line of business. He showed great interest in our suggestions and ideas, responded favorably to our invitation to visit Russia and conduct master classes in our country. So, now we are all expecting to see Bruce Proctor in Russia!
Other leaders from different fields of the film industry also stated that they were eager to visit Russia in order to conduct master classes and other educational programs.
