First Man Virtual Reality Experience
Universal Pictures Presents First Man Virtual Reality Experience
In celebration of the feature film First Man, Universal Pictures and RYOT present the First Man: Virtual Reality Experience, which debuts at select AMC Theatres lobbies — in the Positron Voyager chair — in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and Washington, D.C.
First Man, astronaut Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling), commander of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, successfully breaks the bonds of Earth to become the first person to walk on the lunar surface.
Audiences will now be able to take that dangerous, thrilling journey in Armstrong’s place, from NASA Mission Control, to the cockpit of the Apollo 11 as it breaks through Earth’s atmosphere, to the moment the lunar module lands on the moon.
First Man is the latest cinematic VR theater experience to debut on Voyager, a full-motion chair designed for cinematic VR, created by technology studio Positron.
Voyager delivers a completely new level of immersion in VR by providing a comfortable, fully integrated personal VR theater that incorporates motorized rotation and pitch motion, haptic feedback, volumetric 6DOF (6 degrees of freedom), interactivity, spatial audio, premium VR headsets, and specialized seating.
Friday, October 5 – Sunday, October 14 in LA, San Francisco, Washington, D.C.
Saturday, October 6 – Sunday, October 14 in New York City
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, a story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.
RYOT is Verizon’s Emmy Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated next generation motion picture studio that combines compelling storytelling with immersive experiences.
