Culver City, Calif. — Continuing to add resources for motion picture and television sound, Sony Pictures Post Production Services today announced the opening of three theater-style studios inside the Stage 6 facility on the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City. All studios feature mid-size theater environments and include digital projectors and projection screens. Theater 1 is equipped for sound design and mixing with two S6 consoles and immersive Atmos capabilities, while Theater 3 is geared toward sound design with a single S6. Theater 2 is set up for remote visual effects and color grading review, allowing filmmakers to monitor ongoing post work at other sites without leaving the lot. Additionally, centralized reception and client services facilities have been established to better serve studio sound clients.

Mix Stage 6 and Mix Stage 7 within the sound facility have been upgraded, each featuring two Avid Pro Tools S6 mixing consoles, six Pro Tools digital audio workstations, Christie digital cinema projectors, 24 X 13 projection screens and a variety of support gear. The stages will be used to mix features and high-end television projects. The new resources add capacity and versatility to the studio’s sound operations.

“We offer the best and most comprehensive sound facilities in the industry, as well as the most talented and experienced group of sound artists,” said Tom McCarthy, EVP, Post Production Facilities. “The two theaters we have added are unique sound rooms, offering the acoustical depth of a theater in an intimate environment that promotes creativity. They reflect the evolution of motion picture sound where the traditional boundaries between editorial and mixing have blurred.”

Sony Pictures Post Production Services now has 11 traditional mix stages, the largest being the Cary Grant Theater, which seats 344. It also has mix stages dedicated to IMAX and home entertainment formats. The department features four sound design suites, 60 sound editorial rooms, three ADR recording studios and three Foley stages. Its Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage is among the largest in the world with the capacity to accommodate a full orchestra and choir.
