WESTERVILLE, Ohio, CHENGDU and SHENYANG, China, Oct. 3, 2012 -- The Guitammer Company (OTC BB: GTMM), a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience for audiences, announced today that it has secured its sixth and seventh theater installations with Sichuan Lumiere Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumiere Pavilions) of Beijing, China. The two new installations will include an aggregate of approximately 501 new ButtKicker "4D" seats, for a second auditorium at Lumiere's Shenyang location (North China) and at its first auditorium in Xiaan.
Including previously completed and committed future auditorium installations, Lumiere Pavilions has increased the total number of theater seats that will feature Guitammer's ButtKicker "4D" experience to 1,050 seats located in five of its China-based auditoriums, including in Nanjing (opened in 2011) and at a recently announced Beijing location (VIP seating in a Fangcaodi multiplex – in Beijing's second circle).
Michelle Zhou, General Manager of Nanjing Cinema, Lumiere Pavilions, was recently interviewed in regards to the very positive feedback their theatergoers have provided once they experience the ButtKicker '4D' immersive impact.

Over 10,000 seats at more than 85 entertainment locations in 11 countries are now ButtKicker-enabled, including movie theaters in the US, Russia, South Korea and China. Audiences at these facilities experience first-hand the excitement, impacts, special effects and bone-rattling bass that contribute to ButtKicker's proprietary immersive "4D" patent-protected technology.
Mark Luden, Guitammer's CEO states, "Lumiere Pavilions is a strong, forward-thinking operator that is committed to providing their guests with an unmatched entertainment experience. Our first collaboration to include the ButtKicker '4D' experience at their Nanjing theater complex has been very well received with audiences clearly indicating they are willing to pay more for the enhanced experience. This differentiation is helping Lumiere Pavilions and their local management teams grow customer loyalty and repeat visitation. We're looking forward to the further rollout of the ButtKicker '4D' experience in a growing number of Lumiere Pavilions auditoriums."
