, you're fortunate to have such a well implemented Dolby cinema. And one that appears willing to do 3D showings.
I fear AMC Theaters (Whom holds the exclusive rights to Dolby Cinema in the US) has botched their implementation of the theater redesign, royally. I've now been to 3 different Dolby Cinemas. Soon to be 5. All with issues.
So far none are willing to show 3D. Though there have been reports of some AMC Dolby Cinemas elsewhere in the US that have shown 3D. And I think El Capitan in Hollywood, but that's the only non-AMC Dolby Cinema.
All of them that I've seen/been to have issues with light contamination. The red LED's on floor leak onto the screen. This has been confirmed from other reports throughout the US. I've seen it extend to about halfway up the screen and others have stated they see it all the way to the top. It's very visible and kills the contrast ratio.
At the AMC Altamonte Springs Dolby Cinema, there is a certain LF range that rattles the crap out of the A/C vents and duct-work. I couldn't verify it at the others I've been to because I only have been there once, but I frequent the Altamonte location almost weekly. It took me a while to figure out what the noise was but it's definitely there. Perhaps the vents weren't properly secured.
Lastly, the chairs could use some tweaking. They don't fully extend the legs support. So you're legs are somewhat hanging down a bit. It's a little uncomfortable. I think this is because they didn't leave enough room so people may walk by while the chair is fully reclined and legs extended.
In terms of the video quality of the dual Christie Projectors, it's mostly excellent. Very bright. Great contrast. I'm no expert with this stuff, but I do feel I'm seeing some sort motion resolution issue. But honestly it's close enough to being unnoticeable that I forget it and just enjoy the show.

Also noticed the AMC Aventura has yet to open their Dolby Cinema which they said was supposed to be ready over a month ago.
I wonder if they ran into the same calibration issues the Altamonte Springs location had.
