Do pre-mixes/final mix in a theater properly tuned for the main delivery configuration. The ultimate goal is for the soundtrack to play for audiences the way the sound designer and filmmaker intended. To achieve this the theater in which the soundtrack is mixed must be properly tuned and configured to the final release format. Without this there will be a discrepancy between what the filmmaker and sound designer intended and what the audience experiences. (“Tuned” refers to the acoustical and technical setup of the mix theater.)
