Olympic Cinemas in East Bremerton goes digital

Olympic Cinemas has joined the “Digital Cinema” age with the installation of four all-new digital cinema and Dolby Surround systems at the theater located at 1520 NE Riddell Road (in the Redwood Plaza Shopping Center) in East Bremerton.

With the introduction of this new state-of-the-art equipment, the theater will no longer present traditional “film” movies. All presentations will now be via NEC projectors that are essentially large computers/projectors coupled with new sound processors.

Digital cinema is now being introduced in movie theaters around the world and features a clear, brighter image without many of the issues of film which in the past included scratches, fading and occasional film breaks and jams in the older 35mm projectors.  The systems also offer extended presentation capabilities including 3D features (coming soon to Olympic Cinemas) and additional entertainment options like live operas, sporting events, concerts and other special content.

Jeff Brein, Managing Partner of Far Away Entertainment that manages Olympic Cinemas is a supporter of the new technology and the benefits it delivers to audiences.

“Movie-goers will certainly see the difference in quality, presentation and sound. These projectors represent a giant step forward in presenting a perfectly flawless cinema experience for each and every movie,” he said.

While no ticket price increases are planned there will be a nominal surcharge in the future for 3D films. Olympic Cinemas plans to keep its 3D fees well below those of the major chains in nearby communities.
