BAFTA installs Dolby 3D Digital Cinema at Princess Anne Theatre

MUMBAI: The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) installed Dolby 3D Digital Cinema in its London headquarters’ showpiece theatre at 195 Piccadilly.

The Princess Anne Theatre sits at the heart of the BAFTA headquarters building. The cinema equipped with premium digital projection facilities seats more than 220 people and plays host to many leading industry events.

"BAFTA is committed to embracing the ever-changing world of film and with the dramatic growth we are seeing in digital 3D features, it is vital that BAFTA offer a premium experience for its 3D screenings. We chose the Dolby 3D system because it produces the most fantastic 3D images without having to change our screen or degrade our 2D presentations. Also, with Dolby’s reusable 3D glasses, BAFTA continues its mission to be environmentally friendly," said BAFTA head of technical services Keith Fawcett.

"We have been proud to be involved with the work of BAFTA for many years and the choice by the Academy to add Dolby 3D Digital Cinema to their already excellent facilities reinforces their commitment to providing the very best screening and presentation facilities at 195 Piccadilly," said Dolby Laboratories  manager business development Julian Pinn.
