The Galaxy Cannery in North Las Vegas, Nevada has installed 11 more D-BOX motion-enhanced seats, according to a press release from D-BOX Technologies last week. The theater installed 22 seats back in June 2009, making it the first movie theater in Nevada to have the technology.
"We are thrilled about our association with D-BOX Technologies and look forward to being able to accommodate more moviegoers seeking the D-BOX experience," said Rafe Cohen, President & COO of Galaxy Theatres. "D-BOX truly adds a new dimension to movies and has certainly been a draw for moviegoers who return to our theatre solely for the D-BOX experience thus driving additional revenues to our theatre."
D-BOX technology uses embedded codes in certain movies to move equipped seats in sync with the movie, providing a sensation of motion coordinating with the on-screen action.
Only eight movie theaters in North America currently have this technology installed:
- Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood, California
- Ultrastar Cinemas Surprise Pointe 14 in Surprise, Arizona
- Theatres at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota
- Galaxy Highland in Austin, Texas
- Galaxy Cannery in Las Vegas, Nevada
- Ultrastar Apple Valley in Apple Valley, California
- Cineplex Odeon Queensway in Toronto, Ontario
- Cinema Beloeil in Beloeil, Quebec
The Final Destination 3D was the first 3D movie released with D-BOX's Motion Code™ technology in August 2009, and currently, the animated Astro Boy is playing in D-BOX equipped theaters. The next movie to have it will be the disaster movie 2012 on November 13th.
