Carmike Canton, GA complex features Auro 11.1 3D sound

July 19, 2013

Carmike Cinemas installed Barco’s Auro 11.1 3D cinema sound system at the Riverstone 15 in Canton, GA, in Carmike’s premium large-format “BIGD” auditorium. The Riverstone 15 is the region’s first location to use the new audio technology.

“We pride ourselves in offering our patrons a special moviegoing experience and the new Auro 11.1 by Barco is a unique, immersive sound system that takes cinema entertainment to a whole new level,” commented David Passman, CEO of Carmike Cinemas. “Barco has been a great partner, helping us make the transition from 2D to 3D cinema audio in our premium auditorium an easy one, and also offering excellent support from planning through implementation to ensure our ultimate success.”

Auro 11.1 has enhanced such recent DreamWorks Animation features as The Croods, Rise of the Guardians and current release Turbo, as well as Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful and Lucasfilm’s Red Tails. Barco now has more than 50 titles committed to be released in Auro 11.1 worldwide. Auro 11.1 consists of a three-layered speaker arrangement (surround, height and overhead) to project sounds from their relative point of origin to deliver sound all around and above the patron.

“Carmike Cinemas is on the forefront of the ‘cinema of the future’ trend, and is wisely investing in the best technologies to offer patrons a truly differentiated movie going experience,” stated Patrick Lee, VP of digital cinema at Barco North America. “When movie theatre owners consider what kinds of improvements they can make to lure people from their living rooms to the cinema, Auro 11.1 is definitely a smart option.”
