MARCUS THEATRES® ANNOUNCES NINE LOCATIONS WILL SHOW THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY IN SPECTACULAR HIGH FRAME RATE 3D FORMAT

Advanced-frame-rate technology provides stunning visual images on the big screen

 Milwaukee, Wis., November 19, 2012. . . . . Marcus Theatres® today announced that it will present The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at nine locations in the new High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D format, beginning with the film’s release on Thursday, December 13. This advanced, 48 frames-per-second (fps), frame rate is twice as fast as traditional 24 frames-per-second presentations, resulting in images that are more lifelike and sharper than ever. Fewer than 500 auditoriums in North America will feature the film in this format and Marcus Theatres will be the only exhibitor showing the film in HFR 3D in Wisconsin. 

 

“We are very pleased to be among the first theatres in the country to show The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in this exciting new HFR 3D format. Moviegoers will experience stunningly detailed, amazingly sharp images on our screens like they’ve never seen before. The action sequences, in particular, will be incredibly crisp and lifelike and will keep audiences on the edge of their seats,” said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres. 

 

“We installed systems capable of running the new HFR 3D 48fps technology when we converted to digital cinema last year. The MDX (Marcus Digital Xperience) systems will now enable moviegoers at select theatres to experience the latest advancements in the moviegoing industry,” added Olson.

 

The following nine locations will exhibit The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in the HFR 3D 48fps format:

 

Illinois: Gurnee Cinema, Gurnee and Orland Park Cinema, Orland Park

Minnesota: Oakdale Cinema, Oakdale

Nebraska: Twin Creek Cinema, Bellevue

Ohio: Pickerington Cinema, Pickerington

Wisconsin: Majestic Cinema, Brookfield; North Shore Cinema, Mequon; Point Cinema, Madison and Renaissance Cinema, Sturtevant
