4D cinema experience arrives in the UK

March 10th, 2012 by bash Comments

The UK’s first 4D cinema experience has arrived in Glasgow with a screening of the Disney film John Carter.

Thirty-five of the shifting and vibrating D-BOX seats have been fitted in the cinema, with five more British cinemas getting the technology in coming months, and 24 more at a later stage.

The seats will add approximately £5.50 to the £8.90 cost of the average 3D ticket and will form about 10% of the seating in theatres selected for 4D.

Most of the 3,000 existing D-BOX seats are in the US and Canada, with others in Japan, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

There have been 10,000 D-BOX screenings around the world but those behind the experience say no one has been sick!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
