If you have grown increasingly bored with only three dimensions at your local movie theater, get ready to rock and roll as 4DX technology catapults you into the fourth dimension (not to be confused with The Twilight Zone).
Korona World, a Japanese cinema chain, will open the country’s very first 4D movie theater in Nagoya on April 26. What exactly will happen to you in the fourth dimension? Should you be afraid? Perhaps.
Upon occupying your seat, you will notice a strange panel in front of you. From this panel will emanate, at the appropriate moments, various effects such as wind, water, strobe lights and even smells (you may want to mentally prepare yourself if Arnold Schwarzenegger lets loose with a giant fart.) The ceiling has also been equipped to release bubbles onto the audience – because who doesn’t enjoy a good bubble shower while watching a flick! Beyond that, the seat itself has been programmed to move in conjunction with the action on the screen and to deliver jolts when called for (like when you doze off, I’m guessing).
The first movie to be screened in the new theatre will be Iron Man 3. Be there or be square.
