First Virtual Reality Cinema Opens In Denmark

On 17th June, Palads-biografen in Copenhagen opens the country’s first pop-up Virtual Reality Cinema, with 25 virtual reality spaces where guests can choose to experience horror, action or documentary.

Guests sit on chairs that can swivel and are given virtual reality glasses and headphones to provide an immersive visual experience in 3D, with 360-degree field of view and superior sound.

Jacob Elk√¶r-Hansen, Sales and Marketing Director for Nordisk Film Cinemas, says: “At Nordisk Film Cinemas, we are constantly looking for the best film experiences, not only the best films, but also the best way to see them.”

“Virtual reality is really gaining ground in several areas, and now it’s also a glimpse of tomorrow’s cinema experience. It’s an exciting and completely new way of going to the movies.”

The pop-up cinema is open from 17th-26th June at Palads-biografen in Copenhagen, costs 95 kroner, and each performance lasts approximately 30-35 minutes.
