LISTED: Dolby Atmos cinemas in the Philippines

Dolby Atmos Cinemas in the Philippines: A running list

A primer to Dolby’s immersive sound tech and where you can experience it.

What is Dolby Atmos, and why do we pay extra for it?

“Transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism.” That’s how Dolby puts its modern surround sound tech, Dolby Atmos. And snipping off the buzzwords, that description is actually quite accurate.

In a nutshell, Dolby Atmos adds depth to the sound quality in movies. But in order to understand or appreciate the improvements made by this tech, it’s crucial to learn how Dolby does their magic. The way that Atmos works is simple. By using more speakers and subwoofers, Dolby is able to essentially extract layers of the mix and assign where or which speaker that bit of audio should be projected. This is why recent movies are able to blast sound overhead, perfect for when space crafts loom over the sky, like in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.

Review: Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral (2018, dir. Jerrold Tarog)

To speak of an example from local cinema, Jerrold Tarog’s “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” is mixed with Atmos in mind (via Mike Idioma’s Wildsound Studios). Dog-eared viewers will appreciate the crispness of the sound in that film, but only perhaps if they were able to catch it in theaters that actually support Dolby Atmos.

In the Philippines, we’re lucky to have a breadth of theaters that embrace the sound tech. Of course, not all theaters support it, but if you want to watch films in Dolby Atmos (as you should), you’ll find value in this list.

I’ve included in the list cinemas that support other Dolby surround sound technologies, such as Dolby 3D and Dolby Surround 7.1.

See you at the movies!
