In one week Marvel’s much anticipated DOCTOR STRANGE will arrive on the big screen! We. Can’t. Wait. I love that Marvel is introducing another new character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What is even more exciting is that the film will be shown at Dolby Cinema at AMC, a premium movie going experience! If you haven’t been to one of these theaters yet, it is truly an amazing experience. With spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design, this truly makes watching the film a captivating cinematic event!
DOCTOR STRANGE explores the world of the magical and mystical. Even just seeing the amazing special effects during the trailer, I can tell this is definitely a film that should be seen in Dolby Cinema!
The film tells the story of Stephen Strange, a brilliant surgeon, whose career is ended when he’s in a horrific car accident. Kind of hard to conduct life saving surgery when you can’t use your hands! He then goes on a “healing journey” where he finds himself teaching English in India. This journey is one that absolutely changes his life. It is there he encounters the Ancient One. This mysterious figure then mentors Stephen in the craft of mystic arts, where he then becomes the Sorcerer Supreme aka Marvel’s superhero Doctor Strange.
The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. Scott Derrickson serves as directors with a screenplay by Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill. Seriously, how cool and talented is the cast?
Dolby Cinema at AMC
So now let me chat a little bit about the awesomeness that is Dolby Cinema at AMC. I can’t tell you how much Dolby Cinema has completely transformed my movie going experience. Once you’ve experienced it, you’ll only want to see movies in this format! Using Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos®, Dolby Cinema moviegoers will experience state-of-the-art author and playback imaging technology, and advanced sound technologies with inspired design that I mentioned above. It truly brings the story alive! A unique aspect that is that when you enter the cinema, AMC offers a signature entrance and dynamic audio/video pathway launch your journey into the movie.
I absolutely love that the theater room is designed for minimized distractions and absolute relaxation. There is also the presence of atmospheric lighting and premium, yes PREMIUM, seats! Comfortable is an understatement. These are hands down the BEST theater seats I’ve experienced in my movie-going lifetime. They are so spacious, and I love that you can feel the “pulse” when action is on the big screen!
Now I have to rave about the Dolby Vision projection system. We’re talking state–of–the–art optics and image processing that delivers a high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio. This by far exceeds any other image technology! In other words, get ready for an absolutely vivid and realistic images that make you feel as if you are in the movie’s world! Plus Dolby Cinema also includes the Dolby Atmos sound technology, which moves audio around the theater, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth.
