Company 3 opens Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos theater in NYC

NEW YORK CITY — Company 3 ( has opened a new Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos-equipped theater within the company's Manhattan location at 218 West 18th Street. This theater is one of the first of its kind on the East Coast and will enable Company 3's clients to experience their work in an acoustic environment that’s as robust as that of any cinema in the world. 

The new theater is equipped to present the immersive sound of Dolby Atmos, which filmmakers are using to pull audiences deeper into their stories. In addition to the immersive audio capabilities, the theater also supports Dolby Vision, including 3D, which brings projects to life via darker darks, brighter brights and a wide color range. 

"Company 3 is all about providing the highest quality experience for our clients," says CEO colorist Stefan Sonnenfeld, who put the new theater to use on Paramount’s IF with director John Krasinski and two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. "New York has become a production and post center for every type of show, including the biggest blockbusters. Company 3 has been, and intends to remain, a catalyst for growth in the city. With this new theater, filmmakers can view their work without compromising convenience or quality."

Design and engineering of the purpose-built space was spearheaded by New York-based CTO Robert Keske, LA-based co-CTO Mike Chiado and Toronto-based director of sound engineering Phil Seal. Pilchner/Schoustal International handled the acoustics, while A+C served as architects. Dolby and Company 3's in-house team of technical experts also provided guidance. The theater can be used for color grading, reviewing or monitoring sound mixes (remotely too), or to screen work at the same quality found at Dolby cinemas. The room seats 10 and can seamlessly connect to Company 3's Toronto mixing stages and their re-recording mixing talent.
