The new, locally owned and operated, Blue Oaks Cinema 16 in Rocklin opened its doors today to a waiting crowd. The state-of-the-art megaplex features 16 all digital theaters with high-end Klipsch surround sound. The Theater also features a UDC theater with a wall-to-wall screen, 13.1 surround sound, leather seats and more leg room.

The owner, Dan Tocchini, stated that the theater is the first in the world to feature elevated digital projectors that do not require any projection booth. The technology allows them to maximize usable space and give the audience a better experience. Continuing with the advanced features in the theater, Tocchini stated that every aspect of each theater is controlled by an iPhone looking device: lights, projections, air conditioning and sound can be adjusted instantaneously – allowing for each movie to get a personalized touch.

With an average of 175 seats per theater (individual theaters range from 130 – 290 seat), there is ample room for the growing Placer community. The theater also conveniently offers four ticket kiosks, along with your normal ticket counter, as you enter the doors. These kiosks allow you to purchase tickets or pick-up tickets you purchased online.

For the convenience of families, the theater is offering an Early Bird special for all movies starting in the 10:00am hour. The price for the Early Bird special is $5.50 for general movies and $8.50 for 3D movies.
