Two more Dolby Cinemas have been announced for the UK. Opening this autumn are the Odeon Manchester Trafford Centre and Odeon Luxe Birmingham Broadway Plaza.

The new theatres follow the opening of the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square last December (pictured) and Odeon Luxe Leeds Thorpe Park in April. All the seats in the Dolby Cinema in Odeon Manchester Trafford will be upgraded with 160 Luxe reclining seats.

In Odeon Luxe Birmingham Broadway Plaza, the Dolby Cinema will be in the largest auditorium, which will include 235 existing fully reclining Luxe seats.

Dolby Cinemas combine Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The Dolby Vision laser projection system delivers high dynamic range with enhanced colour technology and a contrast ratio that exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today.

When it comes to Dolby Cinema, the tally is 235 movies in Vision and Atmos. Currently there are 4,870+ Dolby Atmos screens installed or committed, with over 1.370 movies mixed in the immersive sound format. There are more than 200 Dolby Atmos mixing facilities available.

“With moviegoers in London and Leeds already experiencing films in a spectacular Dolby Cinema, it’s now time for those in Manchester and Birmingham to get a taste of the magic,” says Julian Stanford, Senior Director of Dolby Cinema Europe. “Our collaboration with Odeon brings the film-maker’s vision to extraordinary life and puts the audience in the heart of the scene, resulting in an unrivalled cinematic experience.”
