The Evolution Of Movie Theaters - What's Next?

Postby MadMind75 » Wed Nov 24, 2010 4:52 pm

70mm, Dolby Stereo, Dolby Surround, Digital Sound (DTS, SDDS, Dolby Digital), THX certification, IMAX, IMAX 3D, Digital picture, Digital 3D, D-Box Motion Systems... What's Next?

I just read about D-Box. Looks like there are 30 seats at the Mall Of America, and some in St. Louis, and two locations in Michigan. But none in Wisconsin, or even Chicago for that matter!
Tron Legacy is one of the newest films to use D-Box, that would be pretty cool. I think if I was living in the Twin Cities area I'd might have to see it at Mall Of America. 3D AND motion feedback?
There are Blu-Rays encoded with information to run D-Box at home, but one D-Box seat is 15 grand!!!

I think they should bring Smellovision back. No, I'm not kidding! I think it could be perfected with todays technology.

D-BOX - How does it work?
D-BOX theater launch at Mall of America, Minnesota

Marcus, if you're reading this, take note. Maybe you could put a few in the planned theater in the Tradewinds Business Centre - if that EVER comes to fruition! (hint hint - get things in motion!)

Wow. That'd be half a million dollars for 30 D-Box seats.
