The first multiplex operator in Indonesia to bring Dolby Atmos’ lifelike storytelling to moviegoers
Dolby Laboratories, Inc.

With Dolby Atmos, the audience is no longer just watching a movie; they are experiencing it,” said Leong-Yan Yoong, Regional Director, South East Asia, Dolby Laboratories. “We are confident that moviegoers will go back again and again for the extraordinary experience that only Dolby Atmos can deliver.”  

“Cinema 21 is delighted to be the first exhibitor in Indonesia to introduce the latest groundbreaking audio technology with Dolby Atmos.

About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Laboratories is equipping the cinema world with its new Dolby Atmos technology, the only object-based cinema sound platform available today. Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by providing sound experts the creative freedom to easily place or move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, not just where there happen to be speakers.  The result is what moviegoers have described as the most engaging and lifelike cinema sound experience ever.  Introduced in April 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios, six Academy Award® winning directors, and 11 Academy Award winning sound mixers, among others. More than 400 Dolby Atmos screens have been installed or committed to in 33 countries with more than 100 exhibitor partners. More than eighty-five films from nine different countries—representing a broad range of genres, from action thrillers and animated features, to comedy and horror—have been or are scheduled to be released with Dolby Atmos sound since the first film debuted in June 2012.

Dolby Atmos has received technical achievement awards from both the Hollywood Post Alliance and the Cinema Audio Society. As the inventors of the only object-based audio format used in the cinema today, Dolby is working closely with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers in driving adoption of standards for object-based audio.
