Kerasotes ShowPlace Theatres, LLC Debuts ICON•X, Dolby® Atmos™ Enhanced Xperience with Paramount Pictures’ Star Trek Into Darkness

ShowPlace ICON Theatres® at Roosevelt Collection is one of the first theatres in the world to provide moviegoers with the future of entertainment sound
Kerasotes ShowPlace Theatres, LLC today announced that the ShowPlace ICON Theatres® at Roosevelt Collection – at 1011 South Delano Court East (near Roosevelt and Clark) in Chicago’s South Loop – now houses Kerasotes’ first premium large format screen, the ICON•X, Dolby® Atmos™ EnhancedXperience.
 
The ICON•X Xperience begins with high-back Euro-style chairs in the ICON Reserved seating section or deluxe memory-foam chairs in the VIP Reserved section; a giant screen that is almost 1500 square feet; Real-D 3D capability; all-digital Barco Ultra-Brite enhanced 4K projection for the brightest and sharpest picture on screens today; and Dolby Atmos, a break-through, next-generation audio platform that changes the way people experience entertainment sound.
 
Dolby Atmos places sounds anywhere in the auditorium, delivering a unique and compelling experience with natural and lifelike soundscapes, surpassing anything else currently available in theatres. Dolby Atmos has quickly become the preferred choice for next-generation sound in the cinema with major studios, directors, sound teams and exhibitors from around the world adopting the solution.
 
“We’re raising the bar yet again for moviegoing in Chicago with ICON•X.  Features presented in ICON•X will not only look spectacular on screen, but with the addition of the cutting edge Dolby Atmos sound technology, guests will feel immersed in the presentation. It’s a sensory experience surpassing anything else that is currently out there,” said Fred Walraven, Director of Digital Projection and Sound.
 
ShowPlace ICON Theatres® at Roosevelt Collection redefines how movies are enjoyed in Chicago with a multi-sensory experience of digital widescreen picture and sound, the Lobby Lounge where you can enjoy cocktails and food, and Premium VIP Reserved Seating.  First in Chicago to offer reserved seating, all digital projection, and Dolby Surround 7.1 – the ICON continues to lead the way with ICON•X, Dolby® ATMOS™ Enhanced Xperience.  TheShowPlace ICON Theatres® at Roosevelt Collection was the first theatre in Chicago to deploy the Atmos system.
 
Movie-goers should visit ShowPlaceICON.com, “Like” us on Facebook, “Follow Us” on Twitter, and check local listings for the latest information on Dolby Atmos.
 
About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by giving sound experts the creative freedom to easily place or move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, not just where there happen to be speakers.  The result is what moviegoers have described as the most engaging and immersive cinema sound experience ever.
 
Introduced in April 2012, Dolby Atmos’ innovative approach to cinema sound has been embraced by major studios, award-winning directors and sound teams, and leading exhibitors worldwide. Over 40 films around the world have been released or are scheduled to be released with Dolby Atmos sound since the first film was released in June 2012. In 2013, the Cinema Audio Society gave Dolby Atmos its coveted Technical Achievement Award for Post Production.
