March’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is this Tuesday, March 14th at 9:30am. Please note the morning time. With thanks to James M. Davis of Cade Michaels for assistance in coordinating, we will be touring the Showplace ICON Theatre in St. Louis Park. Scott VanDoren, Projection Presentation Analyst, will be our host and tour guide.

The tour will focus primarily on the Dolby® ATMOS™ system but you are welcome to ask any questions during the tour.

About the theatre:
“Founded in 1909 with a single storefront nickelodeon, Chicago-based Kerasotes ShowPlace Theatres introduced a “new era of moviegoing” with its ShowPlace ICON Theatres in Chicago and Minneapolis. Managed by third generation family, Tony and Dean Kerasotes, the Company plans to debut ShowPlace ICON Theatres in additional major U.S. markets.

In addition to projection and visual enhancements, select ICONX presentations will also feature Dolby® ATMOS™; upwards of 60 individually powered QSC Speakers; and up to 40 QSC Digital Amplifiers, creating more than 100,000 watts of audio power. Dolby® ATMOS™ enables sound to be placed anywhere in the auditorium, delivering a unique and compelling experience with natural and lifelike soundscapes, surpassing anything else currently available in theatres.”

This event is open to everyone. Invite your friends and join us for a morning of audio geekery! Space is limited to 20 people so please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks at gmail dot com.

October’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup will be on Tuesday, October 29th at 6:30pm at the ShowPlace ICON theater. Dolby® Atmos™ recently came to this theater, so let’s check it out! They are currently playing Gravity in the equipped theater, but we won’t know the exact film and show time until closer to the 29th. Stay tuned!

Tickets are reserved seating so we will meet at 6:30pm near the ticketing counter so we can choose seats accordingly. We can then proceed to the 2nd floor lobby lounge for a beverage, snacks, and audio geekery. If you can’t stay for the show you can still hang out with us in the lounge beforehand without purchasing a movie ticket.

Invite your friends and come join us for a night of geeky conversation! If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks [at] gmail [dot] com so we can be on the lookout for you.
