Hello DigiFriends! We have some big surprises coming up this fall of 2012. One of them is our new partnership with Nehst, which is an innovative digital content financier, developer, producer and distributor.
The DigiNext In-Venue Film Festival is a unique theatrical exhibition program that pairs multimedia company Nehst Out with Digiplex Destinations, a fast growing state of the art digital theatrical exhibitor.
A breakthrough for filmmakers and consumers, the In-Venue Film Festival is re-creating the film festival experience in local theaters and will showcase high-end American independents, and award winning foreign language films from the top 20 film festivals around the world.
As part of an enhanced movie-going experience, films in the series will include live and Skyped Q&A sessions with filmmakers as well as celebrity appearances and gift bags for attendees.
DigiNext is committed to providing opportunities for filmmakers without previous distribution a chance to reach the consumer. Conversely, the In-Venue Film Festival offers consumers access to highly praised but underexposed films without having to attend film festivals all over the world.
Nehst co-founder and Chairman, Larry Meistrich originated this concept with the successful and critically acclaimed “Shooting Gallery Film Series at Lowes Cineplex Entertainment” which was responsible for such breakout hits as “Croupier” and “Judy Berlin.”

Moms and dads, parents of infants and toddlers – even grandparents, nurses and nannies – will want to visit their local Digiplex digital cinema to watch America’s favorite pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp, reveal the surprising tips and tricks that have made his celebrated books and DVDs among the top parenting guides in history.
The live one night event will be hosted by former Miss USA Ali Landry at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 21 at the Digiplex Rialto Theater in Westfield, N.J., and Digiplex Bloomfield 8 theater in Bloomfield, Conn. Ticket prices are $12.50. Check here for details.
Dr. Karp uses modern science and folk wisdom to help new families get the rest they need, and raise happy, patient, cooperative children. This live presentation will bring to life teachings from Dr. Karp’s books The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block. Audiences will enjoy live demonstrations, watch footage of parents in action, learn simple solutions to help them raise happy, well-behaved young children – and get more sleep.
“Even loving parents can feel pushed to the limit by their baby’s screams or by toddler explosions,” said Dr. Karp. “But some simple steps give parents the tools to calm even colicky babies, soothe tantrums fast and boost cooperation in just days. You almost feel like you’re ‘flipping a switch.’”
Adds A. Dale “Bud” Mayo, Digiplex Destinations chairman/CEO, “This special event is a perfect complement to our Wednesday afternoon ‘Mommy & Me’ film screenings where parents and caregivers can come with young children and not worry about harsh looks if their children get fidgety – the lights are brighter, the sound is a bit lower during these special performances.
“We started this at the Digiplex Rialto Westfield and will expand ‘Mommy & Me’ to our other locations this fall,” Mayo said.The Digiplex Bloomfield 8 Theater is located at 863 Park Avenue (Wintonbury Mall), Bloomfield, Conn., and the Digiplex Rialto Theater is located at 250 East Broad Street in Westfield, N.J.

Director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later) has directed a revolutionary stage production of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in which actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternate playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his monster on successive nights. The play, recorded in March 2011, will be shown at Digiplex digital cinemas in Cranford, N.J., and Bloomfield, Conn., on June 6 and 7 at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15.

The play, written by Nick Dear, has won a number of awards, including the 2012 Olivier Award for best actor for Cumberbatch (Sherlock, War Horse) and Miller (Trainspotting, Dexter), as well as best lighting design; two Evening Standard Awards; two Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards and the What’s on Stage Awards for best director. It was filmed twice to allow audiences to see each actor in both roles.
“This is not the Frankenstein most people have ever seen. The play is an adult version of the famed classic horror tale that we believe fans of Broadway plays and other genres of alternative content at our theaters will thoroughly enjoy,” said A. Dale “Bud” Mayo, Digiplex Destinations chairman/CEO.
The Digiplex Cranford Theater is located at 25 North Avenue, Cranford, N.J., and the Digiplex Bloomfield 8 Theater is located at 863 Park Avenue (Wintonbury Mall), Bloomfield, Conn.
