'Titanic' to return for 20th-anniversary engagement at Dolby Cinema at AMC
Titanic, winner of 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, will return to select theatres nationwide for an exclusive one-week engagement beginning Dec. 1 in all Dolby Cinema at AMC locations, timed with the film’s 20-year anniversary. Twenty of those locations support 3D.
This marks the first-ever release of Titanic in Dolby Vision in 2D and 3D, a direct result of ongoing partnerships with both director James Cameron and Paramount Pictures.
“We mastered a few minutes of Titanic in Dolby Vision and I was stunned. It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the U.S.,” Cameron said. “This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it’s beyond anything you’ve seen before. The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself. This is the way all movies should be seen and without a doubt, Titanic has never looked better.”
“James Cameron shares our vision for creating the world’s best cinematic experiences,” said Doug Darrow, senior VP, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Our partnership with James and Paramount Pictures has enabled us to showcase a masterpiece of theatre in the most incredible way, leveraging Dolby Vision to breathe new life into one of the most awarded films in the history of cinema. Titanic at Dolby Cinema is truly a can’t-miss experience.”
“This timeless love story makes the perfect romantic date—or fun night out with friends,” observed Elizabeth Frank, executive VP, global programming, and chief content officer at AMC. “Twenty years since it first played in theatres, Titanic in Dolby Cinema at AMC will captivate movie fans like never before.”
The Dolby Vision projection system uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing, and delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and an unsurpassed contrast ratio. Dolby Cinema also offers immersive Dolby Atmos audio and AMC Signature recliners.
