Anyone know which Cinema's and more specifically which screens, in NZ are equipped to show Dolby Vision (HDR) and Dolby ATMOS?


Seems to be hard info to find.  I can only find that IMAX is ATMOS capable, but thats about it.  I think they need to start using the symbols on their online ticket/seat booking pages.

Event Cinema's show Dolby ATMOS on their website... but I'm yet to find a movie that has it.




I don't know anywhere that does Dolby Vision though.

Since there are not many in the US I doubt if there are any in NZ. As an aside I saw Star Wars in a AMC theatre certified as Dolby Cinema in LA. Dolby Cinema means Dolby Vision laser projectors and Dolby Atmos audio.







Not part of Dolby Cinema but this theatre as part of the AMC Prime certification had electrically operated reclining seats and embedded subs in the seats :-)  Better than most airlines I have been in.  Nice.
