Multimedia Theater

One of Washington, DC's most technically advanced locations for premiers, screenings and other industry events, NCTA's two-story, 105 seat, theater features a multi-format high-definition video, 2K and 4K 3D high-frame-rate Dolby Digital Cinema. The theater represents the best audience experiences available including ButtKicker® technology that replicates the "feeling" range of many natural and human sounds and a Dolby Surround 7.1 cinema audio system complete with THX certification.
