I went to the Empire 25 Dolby Cinema in NYC for the first time in a while last week to see Mamma Mia 2 - much less charming than the first but looked great in Dolby Vision - and saw that the dual light streams were now on vertically stacked on each other rather than horizontally side by side. Every other Dolby Cinema I've visited, including the Empire 25 in the past, had the dual images streaming side-by-side. Did Christie roll out a new version of the Dolby projectors?
Also, screen 1 aka the Loews screen at AMC Lincoln Square in NYC is being turned into a Dolby Cinema. I had previously posted that it was just getting new seats but the construction barriers outside the theatre have Dolby Cinema logos on them. I'm really curious to know if they are going to shrink the screen. Apart from the IMAX screen at the same multiplex, Screen 1 is the largest screen in the city but I wonder if the Dolby projectors can properly light a screen of that size. After seeing some underwhelming Dolby Vision movies on the large Dolby screen at the AMC Neshaminy that looked significantly brighter and better on smaller Dolby Cinema screens, I think the Christie dual projectors struggle a bit with screens beyond a certain size. It would be a real shame if Screen 1 was shrunk; that room is regularly used for NYC premieres and was still equipped with 35mm and 70mm film projectors. Hopefully AMC retains that capacity during the renovation.
