In order to make the experience of going to the movie theater as entertaining as possible from start to finish, select screenings of the new Terminator Genisys movie will be presented with an in-theater video game.
Paramount released this interactive game at a few AMC IMAX locations, requiring people to have a mobile device on hand in order to use it as a controller.
When a movie-goer wants to take part in the gaming experience, they only need to join a secure Wi-Fi network, rather than downloading an app or signing in. Taking inspiration from Terminator Genisys: Revolution gameplay, players are then assigned at random to a team, so that they can be fully immersed in the world from Terminator Genisys before the movie even starts. To play, people need only point their phone at the theater screen and click a button to shoot and destroy oncoming enemy cyborgs.
