Cineum Cannes is the first cinema in France equipped 100 percent with immersive sound, and the second cinema equipped 100 percent with laser projection.
Designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti, the Cineum Cannes multiplex has 12 theatres with a total capacity of nearly 2,400 seats.
In Cineum Cannes the immersive DTS:X audio system is combined with FLEXOUND Augmented Audio™ technology, which enables natural vibration and equal sound quality in every seat independent of seat location. The technology improves the clarity of dialogue and low frequencies, allowing the moviegoer to feel the sound while requiring no wearable accessories.
”FLEXOUND Augmented Audio connects you to the movie. It improves the clarity of dialogue and allows you to truly feel the sound,” Cineum CEO Philippe Borys said in a press release. “We are very excited to be the first to introduce this new innovative sound technology to France.”
”FLEXOUND Augmented Audio changes the way how people want to experience sound and we are very proud that we can enter continental Europe in Cannes, in the very heart of European cinema,” FLEXOUND’s Head of Seated Entertainment Jessica Wang adds.
FLEXOUND Augmented Audio is based in Finland.
