World leading entertainment company HOYTS is excited to announce it has signed an exclusive agreement to equip four cinemas with new immersive motion recliner seats from D-BOX Technologies Inc.
Open now at three cinemas, one in Sydney, and two in Melbourne, the immersive experience is available in time to add an all new element of entertainment to the highly anticipated movies The Lion King and Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.
Completely transforming the cinema experience as we know it, D-BOX seats synchronise the action on screen with the movement in the seats, so that guests can become fully immersed in the movie. The best part is, all seats are single seats with its own control panel, so that moviegoers can take control of their experience by personalising the intensity of the motion from full on power to low. The added comfort of the powered recliner means guests can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride in style. The end result is an unparalleled experience that has literally changed the way people watch movies.
Damian Keogh, President and Chief Executive Officer at The HOYTS Group, said: “We are very excited to deliver the new, fully immersive D-BOX experience to our guests, which is helping shape what is possible as part of our mission to create the cinema of the future. At HOYTS, we believe that opening the door to innovation is the next step for the ultimate Australian cinema and are proud to be pioneering this technology for moviegoers across the country.”
Claude Mc Master, President and Chief Executive Officer at D-BOX, said: “We’re especially proud to partner with HOYTS because they have a well-deserved reputation for offering moviegoers an exceptional entertainment experience, so we know our immersive motion technology complements their commitment to deliver the best.”
“This first foray into Australia also comes on our 10th anniversary in the movie business, so it’s even more reason to celebrate.”
D-BOX motion technology seats are now available at the following cinemas: Northland (VIC), Highpoint (VIC) and Wetherill Park (NSW). Entertainment Quarter (NSW) is set to open later this year with the entire HOYTS complex undergoing a refurbishment.
