A HOLLYWOOD LANDMARK
The Dolby Theatre is a Hollywood landmark that showcases the latest innovations from the leader in entertainment technology.
The Dolby Theatre is a Hollywood landmark and home of the Academy Awards.
Renowned as the home of the Academy Awards®, the Dolby Theatre® is a 180,000-square-foot, 3,400-seat theatre that amplifies our commitment to science and innovation.
Complete with 201 individually powered loudspeakers, the Dolby Theatre features one of the most sophisticated sound systems in the world. The theatre is equipped with Dolby Atmos® cinema sound playback—the most natural, lifelike sensory experience available at a movie theatre.
We've been working with talented filmmakers to create unforgettable movie experiences for more than 40 years. From the cinema to the living room, Dolby continues to transform the entertainment experience, and the Dolby Theatre reflects our ongoing commitment to help moviemakers realize their visions.
Dolby Atmos propels you into the story and the music with moving audio that delivers the full impact of entertainment.
See how we transformed the Dolby Theatre.
We move speakers, rigging, and other equipment to transform the Dolby Theatre from a movie theatre to the home of the Oscars®.
Dolby staff and theatre crew pull tons of cables from the electrical distribution system and store them away.
Crews remove the 28 rigging motors and hanging points that raise and lower the screen, screen speakers, overhead speakers, and draperies.
Crews have to remove 140 of 210 speakers to accommodate the Oscars set and ensure that the mezzanine audience can see the whole stage.
Rows of seats are removed to make way for the Oscars set and provide steps to the stage for the winners.
The massive screen and its rigging system must be removed to make way for the Oscars stage.
