Dolby Celebrates Success of Digital Cinema Rollout

Exhibitors praise smooth installation and outstanding performance of Dolby Digital Cinema
After installing 84 Dolby® Digital Cinema systems in theatres across the US, exhibitors declare Dolby Laboratories’ (NYSE: DLB) completion of the largest single digital cinema rollout a success. Exhibitors’ reports, after the latest run of Dolby Digital Cinema with Disney's Chicken Little in 3-D, commend the system’s smooth installation and the ease of use and performance.

“All of our theatres are equipped with Dolby audio technologies. We know from experience that we can trust not only the Dolby team for the installations but also the Dolby digital cinema equipment,” said Dean Kerasotes, Chief Operating Officer, Kerasotes Theatres, based in Chicago, Illinois. “In typical Dolby fashion, everything worked smoothly. Our team was excited about the digital cinema technology and how easy it is to use. We have had a great few weeks already without any issues and look forward to future digital releases.”

“Dolby’s rollout of digital cinema is groundbreaking, and we are excited to have been on board since the very beginning,” said Michael Mihalich, Owner and President, MJR Theatres, Michigan. “Having worked with Dolby for many years, we knew we could trust their team and their products. We have three out of the five Dolby Digital Cinema installations in Michigan for Chicken Little in 3-D, and we are adding a fourth in our newest theatre opening this Friday.”

“It’s remarkable; the Dolby Digital Cinema system just slid right into place and runs smoothly,” said Dale Harvey, General Manager, Megaplex Theatres, Sandy, Utah. “The system functioned just as it is supposed to function, and it was extremely easy for our projectionists to learn how to use the system.”

“I have been involved in a number of new theatre technology rollouts before, and Dolby did an excellent job. Everything went very smoothly, and we were impressed with the level of service and accessibility of Dolby’s staff,” said Rob Kurrus, President, Premiere Theaters, LLC, Melbourne, Florida. “Over and above how wonderful the rollout was, the Dolby system is just extraordinary—it is very intuitive, easy to use, and reliable. Once you schedule the system, you don’t even have to press play, it just runs perfectly and every show starts on time, every time. We hope to get more Dolby Digital Cinema systems soon, and are excited about the new digital movies coming out.”

More than 100 Dolby Digital Cinema systems are installed and running in theatres around the world. To find a theatre equipped with Dolby Digital Cinema near you, visit www.dolby.com/consumer/motion_picture/ddcinemas/.
