SAN FRANCISCO/KUWAIT: Dolby Laboratories, Inc (NYSE: DLB) and the Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC) have entered into a three-screen agreement for the first deployments of Dolby Cinema in Kuwait. The first site is expected to open later in 2018 at the 360 Mall in Kuwait City. KNCC, operating under the Cinescape brand.

The news comes hot on the heels of recent announcements of upcoming openings in the UK with Odeon and with Kinopolis in Germany.

“We are really pleased to be able to continue to drive momentum in our strategy to expand the Dolby Cinema footprint in the Europe and Middle East region” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories.

Customers in Kuwait will now be able to experience the ultimate cinema presentation for all genres of film. Dolby Cinema combines spectacular image, moving audio and inspired design to deliver a superior and immersive experience for movie-goers.”

Each Dolby Cinema is equipped with the Dolby Vision laser projection system which delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio which far exceeds anything on the market today.

With Dolby Atmos, guests are transported inside the story with immersive sound that flows all around them, even overhead, creating breathtaking realism and a powerfully moving experience.
