14 Jun 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

In partnership with Odeon, Dolby will open seven Dolby Cinema sites in the UK over the next years. It will also open the first site in Germany later in 2018 in partnership with Kinopolis.

Dolby Cinema is expanding

Dolby Cinema combines Dolby Vision and Atmos for a “best-in-class” cinema experience. The company said that the European expansion plans add to the over 100 sites in the US as well as over 150 sites globally.

In partnership with Odeon Cinemas Group, the company is planning to open seven sites in the UK “over the next several years”. The locations were not announced.

- “Dolby Cinema delivers a best-in-class, unforgettable entertainment experience,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Now, as we map our expansion in the United Kingdom and Germany, we’re bringing the total cinema experience to even more movie-going fans across Europe.”

In addition, Dolby has signed an agreement with Kinopolis to open the first Dolby Cinema in Germany. It will be located in Munich and is expected to open later in 2018 at the Mathäser Palast.

The company added that it will be “expanding its Dolby Cinema portfolio in France with Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé in Marseille at La Joliette, later this year”.

The Dolby Cinema concept is an initiative to pull the theatrical market into the era of HDR video and object-based sound. Dolby is using laser projection technology that some competitors have deemed EDR (Enhanced Dynamic Range) rather than HDR (High Dynamic Range). Samsung and Sony are currently trying to convince exhibitors to install large-scale LED screens, and Samsung appears to have had some luck in it endeavors.
