Powerful new listening experience allows audiences to hear the whole picture
LAS VEGAS, Nev. — June 11, 2013 — Galaxy Cannery Theatres, located at Cannery Casino & Hotel in North Las Vegas, recently added Dolby® Atmos™ to its exclusive Digital Fusion Experience (DFX) auditorium which will open with the midnight showing of Man of Steel on Friday, June 14. The Galaxy Cannery Theatres DFX auditorium, which features a wall to wall and floor to ceiling 65 ft. screen, is now the largest Dolby Atmos location in Las Vegas; providing a powerful new listening experience to the 500 seat theatre.
“Galaxy Theatres is always working to provide the best movie-going experience and Dolby Atmos helps us do that. The system allows sound to come from anywhere which draws audiences into the story and makes you feel as if you’re in middle of the action like never before,” said Rafe Cohen, president of Galaxy Theatres. “It really is terrific.”
Dolby Atmos is a break-through, next-generation audio solution that changes the way people experience entertainment sound. Dolby Atmos places sounds anywhere in the auditorium, delivering a unique and compelling experience with natural and lifelike soundscapes, surpassing anything else currently available in theatres. Dolby Atmos has quickly become the preferred choice for next-generation sound in the cinema with major studios, directors, sound teams and exhibitors from around the world adopting the solution.
“With Dolby Atmos, filmmakers can now position and move sounds precisely anywhere in the theatre, even overhead, to heighten the realism and impact of every scene,” said Tim Schafbuch, Sales Director, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “We are sure that Dolby Atmos will provide an extraordinary experience that will keep moviegoers coming back for more.”
Galaxy Theatres exclusive DFX auditorium features a high frame rate 4K digital projector from Christie Digital. This digital projection system offers viewings of digitally created movies with ultimate color and clarity along with the new Dolby Atmos sound technology to produce a powerful, lifelike movie experience. The auditorium is also equipped with RealD 3D.
