We are keen cinema fans here at The Insider Towers and Roxy Extreme will be interesting to see. That said Imax and Dolby cinema have become household names and many understand the benefit of seeing a film shot with Imax cameras on the Imax format which differs greatly from all others including its sound presentation. Dolby is pursuing its own format of picture and sound and both putting its stamp on the both to television and audio devices. The cinema goer has many choices and has never been so aware of so now we can add ‘Roxy Extreme’ into the mix.
