Warner Bros. buys Digital Cinema facility from Sync Sound

New York City-based audio post-production company Sync Sound’s founders and principles Bill Marino and Ken Hahn have sold their midtown Manhattan facility Digital Cinema to Warner Bros.

Since opening its doors in 1997, Digital Cinema has provided mixing and sound editorial services for numerous successful feature film and television projects, and is home to the city’s largest feature mixing stage.

In the last two years, Marino and Hahn have equipped it with eight new sound design and picture editing suites, added an additional mix stage and ADR stage, and collaborated with Warner Bros. to upgrade the existing re-recording stage.

Digital Cinema was used for the creation of several major motion pictures recently, including The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Into the Woods, Her and The Giver.

Marino and Hahn will continue to operate their flagship Sync Sound post house on West 56th Street, which has been running since 1984.

"For over thirty years, Bill and I have had the privilege of collaborating with some of the most creative and talented people in the business of producing programing for television and features," Hahn commented. "We look at this as the beginning of a new chapter at Sync Sound."

Current projects of Sync Sound’s include Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix and FX’s The Americans.
