FALL, HOLIDAY TITLES FROM BUENA VISTA FEATURE DOLBY STEREO DIGITAL ADVANCED SOUND FORMAT SHOWCASED IN NEW ANIMATED AND LIVE-ACTION FILMS

 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Dolby Stereo Digital, the format of choice for filmmakers eager to offer audiences the drama and presence of digital sound, will be used on the soundtracks of four upcoming fall titles from Buena Vista, bringing to 16 the number of Buena Vista films offered in this advanced sound format during the past year.
 Just released is "The Program," starring James Caan as a university football coach whose dedication to his players prevails in the face of pressures to win at any cost. Debuting nationwide on Oct. 29 is the eagerly-awaited Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas," a magical fantasy highlighted by exciting new advances in three-dimensional stop- motion animation. Opening Nov. 12 is "The Three Musketeers," boasting a cast which includes Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Tim Curry and Rebecca DeMornay in the Alexandre Dumas swashbuckler. And in its Dec. 10 premiere, "Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit," the sequel to the popular 1992 comedy, takes Whoopi Goldberg undercover as a music teacher in a rough inner city school.
 "From films like 'Aladdin' and 'What's Love Got To Do With It' through these current releases, Buena Vista has been a firm supporter of Dolby Stereo Digital since its debut in 1992," commented Dolby Vice President of Film Marketing Bill Mead. "The wide range of titles they have released in this format, from family features to suspense and drama, clearly shows that digital sound makes a difference for more than action/adventure blockbusters alone. We're delighted to have contributed to Buena Vista's success with Dolby Stereo Digital and look forward to working with them on many more titles to come."
 Introduced just over one year ago, Dolby Stereo Digital has earned a reputation with theatre owners for reliable, straightforward operation, and with audiences around the globe for unprecedented clarity and dynamic range. A total of 10 titles from five different studios are in the works for the 1993 fall/holiday season, bringing the total list of released and scheduled titles to more than 40.
 Providing superior sound to moviegoers everywhere since the introduction of Dolby Stereo in the 1970s, Dolby Laboratories has continued to improve film sound with advances in both analog and digital soundtrack production and playback. The company serves filmmakers and exhibitors from its San Francisco headquarters, facilities in England, offices in Los Angeles, New York and Japan, and through the hundreds of Dolby-trained technicians worldwide.
