Horror week is kicking off in Bigscreen starting today at 5:00 PM PT featuring The Ring and other terrifying movies like Cloverfield and World War Z. The lobby has a new look too, shown in the image above.
From February 7th (today) until next Friday, February 14th Bigscreen will be showing World War Z (3D), The Ring, Cloverfield, and 10 Cloverfield Lane as the featured films in Bigscreen Cinema. This means you can purchase movie tickets starting at $3.99 to meet up at a virtual movie theater that goes to great lengths to simulate the movie-going experience from the comfort of your VR headset at home.
Here are more details on Bigscreen Cinema specifically and you can see the rest of this month’s movie lineup in the image below:
According to Darshan Shankar from Bigscreen, they’re working on a bunch of new features that are coming soon:
- Friend system to make it easier to invite people into your rooms,
- Renting, buying, and watching 3D movies in your own private room rather than just pre-scheduled group cinema screenings so you can watch anytime with friends like a real home theater,
- Licensing more (newer) movies, sports, anime, and other content,
- Networking improvements to enhance audio, video, streaming, and performance,
- Drive-In Movie Theater environment, but that likely won’t be out until near the end of 2020.
