Re: Dolby Looks to the Future with Dolby Cinema

I make it a point to go to an early Matinee showing at least a week after a movie has been released. Usually there are very few people in the theater, so I get to sit in the "sweet spot".

Unfortunately, we don't have any of the high-end theaters within at least 100 miles: no Atmos, no Auro-3D, no IMAX and no AMC Prime

As one of the elder statesmen of movie going, I can without hesitation say I do not go BECAUSE of the audience. I do not like to be interrupted by chatter, cell phones and inconsiderable people walking about or wearing hats they will not remove. The popcorn and butter is actually neither and the prices seem to be inching toward the stratosphere with no let up in sight.

These things coupled with the possibility of a bad experience as fleshed out by Todd above, has convinced me to Just Say No. Now when one adds in the possibility of a bad movie, the odds and costs seem to make the decisions easy.
Agreeable to me on many points, except that instead of "just saying no," I'll roll the dice on the audience in order to experience a good movie. Those dice rolled clean off the table once after asking a fellow patron to kindly keep their voice down. Their response: "It's a free country."
So much for suspended disbelief and respect for others.

Re: Dolby Looks to the Future with Dolby Cinema

Yes indeed its a free country but there are rules that are agreed to the moment one steps into a movie theater. Free country is correct, buta free country with some regulations.

Good Listening
