Say “Hasta la vista, baby” to the real word and explore the cybernetic cinematic universe of the Terminator in VR at Cinemark’s Century 20 Oakridge and XD theatre in San Jose, California, which recently debuted its Spaces Center virtual reality experience.
A brand-new, multi-sensory virtual reality Spaces Center at Cinemark’s San Jose venue opened to the public on Feb. 8, 2019. The featured offering, Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future, is described as the region’s first AAA movie-themed VR experience that blends 4D effects with 3D face scanning, physical interaction, wind, movement and social group play.
Spaces allows up to four guests at a time to experience a virtual reality adventure featuring haptic feedback and environmental effects that they can reach out and touch. It is also billed as the first location-based VR that allows guests to leave with with a highlight video they can share on social media.
“We invite everyone to come check out the Bay area’s very first immersive, VR experience inside a movie theatre. This mixed-reality adventure, in partnership with Spaces, transports thrill-seekers straight from our Century 20 Oakridge and XD location right into the Terminator universe,” said James Meredith, SVP of Marketing and Communications. “At Cinemark, we’re constantly innovating and enhancing the entertainment experience with new amenities, like virtual reality, for our guests to enjoy.”
“At Spaces, we say ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ where guests are transported into the action,” explains Shiraz Akmal, Spaces CEO. “As the newest entertainment destination in the Bay Area, we provide consumers an incredible, shared virtual reality adventure where they can suit up and escape with their friends and family again and again. We’ve found that a lot of people are trying VR for the first time when they visit a Spaces center. It’s a very comfortable, family-friendly space, like a Cinemark theater. It makes it very easy and affordable to enter, play and see what VR is all about.”
The Cinemark SPACES is located at 925 Blossom Hill Rd., San Jose, CA 95123 in the Westfield Oakridge Shopping Center. For more information and tickets visit cinemark.com/spaces, and watch this video from the Irvine location:
