Dolby Atmos Indications Added to Showtimes

Posted on Thursday, July 25th, 2013 12:50 PM

Dolby Atmos LogoAbout a year after its introduction, Dolby's Atmos™ sound format has gained some traction, with almost 50 movies released in 2013 with Dolby Atmos sound mixes. The number of Atmos-equipped movie theaters has risen from just a handful in the United States to about 80, with more in Canada, Mexico, and worldwide.

Looking at this weekend's release of The Wolverine and The Wolverine 3D results in about 33 and 35 theaters in our listings that have Dolby Atmos indicated.

These factors add up to the introduction of Dolby Atmos indications on the showtimes, in the same column as the other digital sound formats.
