Dolby Cinema arrives at Cineplexx this year with Dolby Vision laser projection and award-winning Dolby Atmos sound
Cineplexx and Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that they will open six Dolby Cinema™ locations in Austria. Dolby Cinema offers a premium cinema experience for moviegoers and combines spectacular Dolby Vision™ laser projection and Dolby Atmos® sound technologies with inspired design, making every visit to the cinema a completely captivating event.

Cineplexx will open two Dolby Cinema sites later this year, with the first to be located in Linz. Additional Dolby Cinema sites are planned to open at major Cineplexx locations across Austria in 2016 and 2017.
 
“We are very pleased about this collaboration with Dolby,” said Christian Langhammer, CEO, Cineplexx Austria. “Cineplexx will be the first cinema chain in the German-speaking region to offer Dolby Cinema. With this groundbreaking cinema innovation, we will boost the moviegoing experience to the next level: Dolby Vision laser projection together with Dolby Atmos sound—the best cinema experience of all time.”

Dolby Cinema features the Dolby Vision projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing to deliver high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today. The result is a richer, more detailed viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images and makes viewers feel like they are in the movie’s world.
 
Dolby Cinema also includes the award-winning Dolby® sound technology, Dolby Atmos, which moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth. The combination of Dolby technology with the design and comfort of the Dolby Cinema at Cineplexx will make audiences feel closer to the onscreen action than ever before.
 
About Constantin Film Holding GmbH
The film distributor Constantin Film Holding GmbH was founded in Austria in 1951. A second mainstay was created at the end of the 1960s in the segment of cine operations. In this segment, 25 traditional cinemas and cinema centres were operated until the beginning of the 1990s and, following a structural change, the Cineplexx Cine Operations GmbH, a subsidiary company of the Constantin Film Holding GmbH, was founded in 1993. The business developed during a time when many traditional cinemas in Austria were disappearing and multiplex movie theatres were conquering the market. Constantin Film reacted to this trend by establishing a group of 19 cinemas and 153 screens in Austria. Additionally, traditional movie theatres with up to 18 halls existed.
 
In 2009, Cineplexx International GmbH started expanding to Austria’s neighbouring countries, and the first cinema outside Austria was opened in Bolzano, South Tyrol. Cineplexx also took over a cinema in Zagreb’s city centre, thus laying the foundation for expansion into Croatia. Further Cineplexx cinemas followed in 2011 and 2012 in Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. In 2013 Cineplexx established five multiplex movie theatres in Slovenia and the first seven-hall cinema in Albania. The last expansion took place in spring 2014 with the opening of a multiplex cinema in Usce, Serbia.
 
Today, Cineplexx has a strong market presence with 40 multiplex and six traditional locations in Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania and Italy, offering 291 halls. In 2014, the company’s working force included 1,200 employees, the overall turnover amounted to 120 million euros and the number of Cineplexx visitors reached 10.5 million.
