Titanic Returns to the Big Screen for 20-Year Anniversary in Exclusive Dolby Cinema at AMC Engagement
Director James Cameron invites audiences to experience the critically acclaimed film in Dolby Vision, including select 3D locations
San Francisco, CA (November 15, 2017) – Dolby Laboratories, Inc., Paramount Pictures, and AMC Theatres today announced that “Titanic,” winner of 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, will return to select theaters nationwide for an exclusive one-week engagement in Dolby Cinema at AMC. In celebration of the film’s 20-year anniversary, audiences across the U.S. can experience Paramount Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox’s “Titanic” in all Dolby Cinema at AMC locations, including 20 locations supporting 3D, beginning December 1, 2017.
This marks the first-ever release of “Titanic” in Dolby Vision in 2D and 3D, a direct result of ongoing partnerships with both 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.,” said filmmaker and director James Cameron. “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 Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Our partnership with James and Paramount Pictures has enabled us to showcase a masterpiece of theater 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.”
