AMC Theatres and Dolby Laboratories marked the opening of the 100th Dolby Cinema at AMC location at AMC Loews 34th Street 14 in New York City, three years after the debut of the first site. The original agreement, reached in 2015, was for 100 auditoriums over a 10-year deployment.

“Opening the 100th Dolby Cinema at AMC location is a momentous event,” said Doug Darrow, senior VP, Dolby’s Cinema Business Group. “Dolby and AMC embrace a shared passion to deliver a best-in-class, unforgettable entertainment experience. Our growth was made possible by the incredible response from moviegoers, studios and filmmakers.”

“Dolby Cinema at AMC provides an unparalleled moviegoing experience and the guest response around the country has been remarkable,” said John McDonald, AMC’s executive VP, U.S. operations. “To reach 100 locations in just three years is a testament to the strong partnership between Dolby and AMC, but also to the strong preference of moviegoers to enjoy their movies in the powerful and captivating environment that Dolby Cinema at AMC provides.”

Dolby Cinema at AMC delivers Dolby Vision laser projection (co-developed with Christie), Dolby Atmos immersive sound, and spacious seating with reservable AMC Signature recliners.
