Dublin, Ireland (September 20, 2022) –

GQT Movies, a chain of 23 movie theaters in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri, became the first RTS customer to use Showtime Analytics.

GQT Movies acquired the former Goodrich Quality Theaters, which went bankrupt in July 2020, but the original company has been in business since 1930, starting with a single screen in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since then, GQT has innovated, changed and grown with the cinema industry. Their locations offer multiple experiences including IMAX, GDX, Dolby Atmos and his 4K digital projections in select theaters. The introduction of advanced analytics tools via the Showtime data platform is the latest move to provide staff and executives with the insights they need to maintain customer loyalty and brand engagement and drive strategy forward.

Showtime Analytics CEO Richie Power said of the partnership:
“Earlier this year, Showtime announced the integration of our analytics solution with RTS, furthering our commitment to connecting to any data source and providing exhibitors with access to all first-party data available. It enhances your ability to harness your power, and we’re excited to see this come to life with the GQT movie, working with such a strategically driven and dedicated team to help us reach our ongoing growth goals. I look forward to

Matt McPerlin, Chief Operating Officer of GQT Movies, said:
“We first learned about Showtime Analytics at CinemaCon and through several conferences and demos we discovered the value it could bring to smaller theater chains.

Larry McCourt, SVP Development and Partnerships for Domestic Markets at Showtime Analytics, added:

We are delighted to have them on board and look forward to helping them achieve great things.”
