The theater is owned by Regal.

Based on Fandango seating chart info, the capacity for this theater is 3,123. The RPX auditorium (1) is the only one with recliner seating and as such is in the middle of the pack capacity-wise at 157. Theater 16 is the largest at 357. Theaters 7, 8, and 16 all have large side-masked screens with 16 being the largest. Theater 9 has “ScreenX” technology which includes a scope-formatted main screen as well as screens running along the side walls that are supposed to reflect imagery that blends into the main picture.

even though the Atmos mix of ‘Noah’ – didn’t wow me. ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ did. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ was once again insanely (and obnoxiously) loud over at Tysons. Here though because it’s a smaller auditorium I think the folks who did the install didn’t have to compensate or alter the sound levels to much extremes as the folk over at Tyson’s did. Even though the screen here is smaller in height than at Tysons, the Atmos / overall sound system is better calibrated here.

I agree thebrat – the aural experience of ‘Gravity’ was just literally out of this world [yeah, kind of the corny there – huh?] Actually I think the three Atmos systems was a Regal website misinformation – the manager I talked with last time I was there said the RPX screen is the only Atmos equipped screen.

GRAVITY was awesome on the RPX screen in Dolby Atmos. The entire sound mix enveloped me into this world I thought I’d never be in. It was an experience in itself. The 3D that was post-converted was really good, it almost helped the story. Although PACIFIC RIM rocked here, GRAVITY made this theater a favorite.

three? really? wow! I saw ‘Pacific Rim’ on the RPX screen (2D) in Atmos and it sounded pretty good – the volume isn’t as LOUD or annoying as it is over at Tysons.

It looks like this place now has three screens with Dolby Atmos installed, including the RPX screen. All three are showing Insidious: Chapter 2 as of 9/14/2013.

saw ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ this afternoon on the RPX screen, sitting in the middle was perfect in hearing the 7.1 audio mix and great peripheral eyesight lines – the ‘High Frame Rate’ was interesting – the ultra sharpness of the image was outstanding, but the lack of grain and the slight speed up, really did make it look video-esque.

screen #1 got upgraded to ‘RPX’ for the release of ‘Life of Pi’

This sounds like the “Floating Screen” or “Picture Window” screen in grand opening ads.

“Fully expanded” is indeed what Consolidated Theatres says, but what does it mean? does it mean the movie screens become smaller for scope films? or something else?
