SGT. PEPPER HEADS TO THEATERS

Sgt. Pepper will be telling the band to play today in theaters across the U.S. and Canada as Dolby Labs and Universal Music Group throw listening events for 50th anniversary edition of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Lovely audiences only, please.

In  Los Angeles, the party will be thrown at the AMC Century City 15; New York’s event is at the AMC Empire 25. Click here for a full list of cinemas and times.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band will be played in Dolby Atmos, a sound technology that places and moves sound around the audience, including overhead, to immerse the audience in the music. Giles Martin, engineer Sam Okell and re-recording mixer Chris Jenkins have overseen the new mix.

 “The remixing of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in Dolby Atmos marks a significant milestone for the technology,” said Curt Behlmer, Senior Vice President, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. “This project demonstrates the capability of Dolby Atmos to bring moving audio to music in a new and innovative way.”

Michael Frey, President of Operations and Advanced Media, UMG, added: “To celebrate the 50thanniversary of its release, we wanted to reflect this ambition using the latest technologies. Remastering Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in Dolby Atmos has enabled us to give fans a new way to experience this iconic album.”
