Fascinating article about how the future of Cinema is changing from Virtual Reality Cinemas to Virtual Reality Arcades. As it talks about the vast possibilities and the convergence between theatre, games, cinema and even adventure theme parks. Watch this space
Times are changing. The cinema, coming into existence in the 1890’s has had many challenges to its revenue, from such technology as the TV, the DVD and lately streaming services. But all these have emulated the cinema experience as the benchmark.
