Sound Systems in Cinema..?

I've just been to see 'Prometheus' in my local cinema (Vue in Hamilton, Scotland) and the
sound was absolutely awesome. Anyone have any idea what the sound system might've been..?
Can't find much on the net about it.

Prometheus was mixed in 7.1 - as are a lot of the big budget releases are. Whether or not
that particular theatre presented it in 7.1 or 5.1 is a different matter. Also, if you're
asking what specific speaker/amp system was used, then that's anyone's guess! But the JBL
Cinema systems are a good place to start if you want to know a bit more about cinema
specific sound systems.
As for Brave, yes first film to be done in Dolby Atmos
(64.2!!), but the 14 theatres equiped with it to show Brave are all in North America. So
not sure that's a format that's mainstream just yet!
