18 Tech-Focused Cinemas

From Motion-Enhanced Seating to Tri-Paneled Screens

— July 15, 2015 — Tech
Tech-focused cinema concepts entice forward-thinking consumers aimed at experiencing their films at the highest quality possible. While many traditional theaters boast impressive systems, a select crop of movie theaters are positioning themselves as leaders in continually integrating cutting edge technology in ways that enrich the consumer experience.

While some theaters aim to entice consumers away from Netflix with upleveled dine-in options or hyper-niche gimmicks like cannabis-friendly screening, tech-focused theater chains serve to incorporate as much sensory stimulation as possible into the viewing experience.

Floor-to-ceiling screens, 4D technology and motion-enhanced seating take the viewing experience from casual pastime to immersive experience that definitely has the power to one-up any at-home viewing options, no matter how convenient or quick.
