Dolby Celebrates 100th Dolby Cinema Opening

Exhibits Strong Worldwide Momentum for Dolby Cinema – The Total Cinema Experience
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced the opening of its 100th global Dolby Cinema location at AMC South Bay Galleria 16 in Redondo Beach, California. This global milestone highlights the strength of Dolby Cinema, with more than 325 Dolby Cinema sites installed or committed, as well as amazing studio support with more than 100 titles released or announced.
 
Dolby Cinema is a premium cinema offering for moviegoers that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design to deliver the total cinema experience, making every visit a completely captivating cinematic event.
 
Dolby Cinema enables richer and more action-packed storytelling through Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The Dolby Vision projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing, delivers 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 dramatically different viewing experience that presents strikingly vivid and realistic images, making viewers feel like they are inside the movie's world. The Dolby Vision laser projection system was co-developed with Christie, which supplies, installs, and services all the projector systems, which can only be experienced at Dolby Cinema locations.
 
Dolby Cinema also includes Dolby Atmos sound technology, which moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth. The combination of Dolby technologies with the design and comfort of the Dolby Cinema makes audiences feel closer to the onscreen action than ever before.
 
“It is very gratifying to see top filmmakers and industry creatives whose first choice is to showcase their work in Dolby Cinema,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Audiences continue to embrace Dolby Cinema as well. The rapid growth of Dolby Cinema to 100 locations shows that movie lovers around the world are hungry for a truly immersive experience with state-of-the-art images and sound that make them feel like they are inside the story.”
 
The current global offering for Dolby Cinema includes:
  • U.S.: AMC plans to open 160 Dolby Cinema locations by the end of 2018 with 77 sites currently open. 
  • China: Dolby and Wanda Cinema Group plan to open 100 locations in China, with the first 19 locations already open. Sparkle Roll, including Jackie Chan Cinemas and BHG, have already opened three locations and plan to open 11 Dolby Cinema sites in China within the next two years. In addition, Dolby and Huayi Brothers Film Center opened a Dolby Cinema in Xiamen.
  • Europe: Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé, the largest cinema chain operator in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, plans to open 10 Dolby Cinema locations, with seven in France and three in the Netherlands.

Cineplexx Cinemas plans to add four locations in Austria with two currently opened in Linz and Salzburg.
  • The Middle East: Reel Cinemas plan to open multiple Dolby Cinema locations across the Reel Cinemas portfolio in the Middle East. Dolby and Reel Cinemas recently opened a location in the Dubai Marina Mall and later this year the flagship Reel Cinema location at The Dubai Mall is expected to open.
