Limited Capacity filling up

Too many movie theater seats remain empty these days, despite all the plus sides like fluffy carpets, comfy chairs, and good memories of first kisses. As business is not as good as it used to be, movie theater owners are open for experiments. Like making some space for VR. While consumer devices still struggle to get a foot in the door, VR Arcades do quite well. One great challenge remains: VR installations for multiple users need space – which is well equipped at best. Hello movie theaters.

At VR NOW Con, cinema owners will get a deeper knowledge of technologies that will enable them to show immersive content to their audiences without too much reconstruction effort. A first step will be Cinematic VR as a shared experience. To demo the new possibilities, our partner INVR.SPACE will set up 50 frame synced Oculus Gos in a real movie theater at our conference venue and turn it into an Immersive Cinema.

At the Cinematic VR Movie Theater, we will present immersive content that's suitable to be shown in this context. VR installations and room scale experiences with 6DoF, live acting or haptic feedback are a logical next step. A workshop for cinema owners and VR producers interested in a new clientele will be informed about the tech, the biz and the content. Let's bring VR into the movies and save them from extinction.

A 90 minute long and highly intensive workshop about how to implement immersive media in movie theaters. The first 45 minutes: immerse yourself into new business opportunities, find out about the current state of technology and set ups, about major and indie content, about marketing and distribution. The second 45 minutes: As me Anything. Experts will find answers to all of your questions.
