Village Cinemas, one of the leading multiplex operators in Australia, has installed Dolby Atmos technology at two of the VMAX cinema auditoriums at Crown Casino, Melbourne. Invited guests will be among the first to experience the sound technology at the iconic VMAX cinema auditoriums at a special preview screening of Edge of Tomorrow, the new action film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, which opens in Australia on June 5th.
“Dolby looks forward to working with Village Cinemas to bring the ultimate cinematic experience to moviegoers in Australia,” said Mahesh Sundaram, vice president, Asia Pacific, Dolby Laboratories. “With Dolby Atmos, you feel as if you are in the movie, not merely watching it. We are confident that moviegoers will continue to visit Village Cinemas once they enjoy their first Dolby Atmos film.”
“Village Cinemas is proud to work with Dolby to implement the groundbreaking Dolby Atmos sound technology at the iconic VMAX auditoriums at Crown Casino,” said Kirk Edwards, chief executive officer, Village Cinemas. “This marks another significant milestone for Village Cinemas as we continue to offer revolutionary systems and creative content to our patrons to ensure the most epic movie experiences. Dolby Atmos is the way to go, and we look forward to bringing the unsurpassed Dolby Atmos experience to audiences in more Village locations.”
Chris Burdon, the Dolby Atmos rerecording mixer on Edge of Tomorrow said, “This film provided so many fantastic opportunities to fully utilize the Dolby Atmos format. The film’s narrative of human military conflict with invading aliens was always going to need a complex, multilayered sound mix. Director Doug Liman’s dynamic visual style and his desire for a bold, adventurous audio track meant the sound team required an exceptional sonic canvas. Mixing the film in Dolby Atmos made this possible. From military aircraft and alien missiles flying above the audience, using the overhead speakers to highly detailed, pinpoint accurate gunshots and helicopter blades spinning around the theatre, Dolby Atmos allowed the sound story to be told with wonderful detail.”
