IMAX Opens First VR Experience Centre in Los Angeles

IMAX Corporation‘s flagship VR Experience Centre opened January 6 near The Grove retail and entertainment center in Los Angeles.


Features of the IMAX VR experience include: Room-tracking technology that allows players to explore virtual space, single-player and head-to-head multiplayer competition, a combination of “the most advanced VR headset technology for unmatched immersion and image resolution” (htc VIVE and StarVR from Starbreeze Studios and Acer), and control devices that give lifelike haptic feedback, adding a deeper layer of realism.

Content ranges from licensed IP such as Lucasfilm’s Star Wars, Summit Entertainment’s John Wick, and Ubisoft’s Rabbids to original titles, with each experience lasting between seven and twenty-five minutes.
