The outlets you see on the floor are hard wired into a rack of UPS battery backups, to keep the platters live during power fluctuations and outages. Other key components of the system are also on battery backups, such as the Dolby processors, automations and dimmer control circuits. This provides an instant restart to each movie once the power resumes from an outage, since the platters, automation, lighting and sound equipment is unaware of the outage.
