AMC partners with Dreamscape Immersive to bring VR into theaters

AMC Entertainment has announced a partnership with the Los Angeles based startup Dreamscape Immersive that will bring VR to its theaters starting in 2018.

The $20 million investment by AMC will be used to bring up to six Dreamscape Immersive VR centers to the United States and United Kingdom.

Some of these VR sites will be built within existing AMC locations, while others will be standalone instillations. The plan is to utilize open floor plans in its theaters, each offering 16 feet by 16 feet of walkable space surrounded by railing.
