|Home: BigScreen Journal - Ann Arbor, MI: Showcase Cinema Debuts Gaming Center|
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Amusements Showcase Cinemas in Ann Arbor has just opened a video game center called "CyGamZ."
Located in an unused lobby of the Showcase multiplex, it covers a huge corner of the complex – larger than several theaters put together. It encompasses a large lounge with a concession stand and pods of 24 Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 video game consoles hooked up to flat screen TVs; party rooms that feature more consoles, more flat screens and the ability to run things like Powerpoint presentations; and a huge back room that houses 60 moodily lit Alienware PCs running a gamut of games from “Sims 2” to “Battlefield 2142.”
All are connected to each other and to the Internet via super-fast lines and offer headphones and headsets.
While this is the first such center opened by National Amusements, the center's success will most likely be cause for opening more across the country.
