We just experienced the most AMAZING screening of the Disney's The Jungle Book in Dolby Cinema, and for just one week you can share in the same experience as you watch the most powerful image and sound technologies as you relax in spacious, reserved recliners that pulsate with the action. The event is happening at select AMC Prime locations for one week only, and you can find a location near you below.
Before the event, we couldn't be happier to be on our way! Even King Louie hitched a ride with us to catch this special Dolby Cinema screening opening weekend at our local AMC Prime theater in Burbank.
Experience the Jungle Book in Dolby Cinema at AMC Theaters
Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book is not the animated film you grew up with and love. Though the character base is the same, the film pays homage to Kipling's original story, sharing the vision Kipling himself had growing up.
While the new version of The Jungle Book is a bit less cuddly than the animated version, this spectacular film holds its own as a treat for older children who are looking for a film with a little more of a thrill.
As you watch The Jungle Book at Dolby Cinemas, you'll feel your recliners pulsate and pound as characters Shere Khan, Bagheera, Baloo, and King Louie each reach their points of intense conflict, intensifying the emotion on-screen.
Best of all, the recliners at Dolby Cinemas at AMC Prime theaters are all individually controlled letting you choose your comfort level for the best viewing experience possible.
If you know me, it's no secret some of my favorite moments of the film include when the characters break out into song, much like the animated Jungle Book. In this new original film you not only get to listen to Christopher Walken (King Louie) sing ‘I Wanna Be Like You', which is awkwardly spectacular and surprisingly awesome (I love Christopher Walken), but you also you'll fall in love with the the remarkably adorable rendition of ‘The Bare Necessities' sung by Neel Sethi (Mowgli) and Bill Murray (Baloo), one of my favorite moments of the film.
Listening to Jon Favreau's recreation of Walt Disney's Fantasound through Dolby Atmos sound technologies lets you feel the isolated instruments move around the theater as you witness the most realistic animation to date on Dolby Vision—a state-of-the-art imaging technology that enables the cinema to bring the story alive onscreen. The Jungle Book will immerse you in an enchanting and lush world that seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments.
Packed with the perfect balance of heart-warming drama and thrilling, yet sometimes frightening chase scenes, The Jungle Book captures the spirit of family that audiences will enjoy and cherish. Don't miss your chance to watch The Jungle Book in Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime theaters.

About The Jungle Book
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).
Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela.
