Emagine Entertainment Inc., a luxury theater operator based in Troy and with locations in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, announced a partnership with Influx to develop a new mobile app experience for Emagine guests.
Influx, a provider of guest-facing cinema technology solutions based in Dallas, currently is developing the iOS and Android app alongside Emagine, which is expected launch in the first quarter of 2023.
“We are eager to introduce our new app experience to our guests,” says Anthony LaVerde, CEO of Emagine Entertainment. “Along with Influx, we are designing what we believe to be the ultimate app platform that will put a variety of functionality and usability in the palm of our guests’ hands.
