    The Starz Super Pak now offers the East and West Coast feeds of Encore and STARZ! Theater, in addition to both feeds of STARZ!, as part of its broader Dolby Digital 5.1 lineup.

    A selection of the hit movie titles to be offered with Dolby Digital 5.1 in March 2002 include, "Bridget Jones's Diary," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "Unbreakable," "Chocolat," "Blow," "Crouching Tiger," "Hidden Dragon," "Thirteen Days" and "Disney's The Kid."
