May 28, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Location: Dolby Laboratories NY Screening Room 1350 Ave of the Americas Main Floor

Moderated by: Ken Hunold

Come help mark the 50th anniversary of Dolby Laboratories.  Chartered on May 17th 1965, Dolby was set up as an American corporation by Ray Dolby, but located in offices in London, England.

Dolby’s first office in the USA was at 333 Avenue of the Americas, in space sub-let from friend and part time office manager Marc Aubort of Elite Recording. 

Help us turn on the “way-back” machine and trace the path of Dolby Laboratories through its products and locations.

Bring your own recollections of Dolby stories (old ones, but new ones are OK, too.)  You may be asked to tell your stories to the group.
