SGC Dungarvan Cinema is proud to announce that our sound has been upgraded to the phenomenal 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound which gives more depth and greater realism for you at the movies.  Enhances audio definition, so individual sounds are clearer and more distinct.

A more rounded and robust sound that truly lets you feel everything that is happening on the big screen in front of you, leaving you fully enveloped into the world of the movies, be it a musical, action, adventure, drama or comedy.

Sound so encompassing you can feel every beat and every silence like never before, whether it’s the Booming vibrations of King Kong pounding his feet towards you, the subtle tiptoe passing a sleeping monster or the scrape of a horror movie maniac, the sound will pull you deeper and deeper into the world.  Movies never Sounded this good!!


Dolby Surround 7.1 increases the impact of surround sound by adding two audio channels. In the process, it improves the spatial dimension of movie audio and enhances overall audio definition for movie soundtracks.


Four Surround Zones

One of the innovations of Dolby Surround 7.1 is the creation of four distinct surround zones in the theatre. These surround zones provide filmmakers with greater control over the exact placement of each detail in their soundtracks.

The orchestration possibilities that Dolby Surround 7.1 introduces allow mixers and sound designers to more accurately match their audio to the visuals onscreen. This means more depth and greater realism for you at the movies.

In addition to improving the side-to-side panning of sounds and sound localization, Dolby Surround 7.1 enhances audio definition, so you hear individual sounds more clearly and distinctly. It also widens the listening “sweet spot”—in other words, the full power of Dolby Surround 7.1 is not limited to a handful of seats in the center of the theatre.
