We've got the list for those that want to check out the latest sound innovation from Dolby.
Dolby Atmos is a new tech that allows for sound to be presented in – for lack of a better term – 3D. Our own Josh Zyber explains the tech in detail, but the basic thrust is that Dolby Atmos allows mixers to send audio overhead, pan it left to right or front to back without deadspots, and even pinpoint where they want sounds to take place. It's incredibly impressive.
If you want to check out Atmos for yourself, you can hit up one of the 12 theaters its being used in for 'Taken 2,' the latest from Liam Neeson and Olivier Megaton. The full list is below.
