Tickets are on sale now for Cinemark’s brand-new, immersive VR experience at the Century 20 Oakridge and XD theatre featuring “Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future”

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), one of the world’s largest motion picture exhibitors, announced it is opening a brand-new, immersive virtual reality (VR) experience on February 8 at its Century 20 Oakridge and XD theatre in San Jose, CA at the Westfield Oakridge Shopping Center. As the newest SPACES location, it will feature multi-sensory VR technology blending 4D effects, 3D face scanning, physical interaction and social group play. Tickets and information are available now at Cinemark.com/SPACES.

“Cinemark is constantly innovating and providing new experiences for our guests; we love taking entertainment and moviegoing to the next level,” said Mark Zoradi, Cinemark’s CEO. “Cinemark is excited to partner with SPACES to provide our Bay area guests with a fun, immersive, mixed-reality adventure.”

Thrill-seekers gear up and join the resistance in the fight against Skynet in a heart-pounding, untethered, adventure that takes place in the Terminator universe. The first Cinemark SPACES experience will be “Fight for the Future” based on “Terminator Salvation.” Upon entering Cinemark SPACES, guests will register and then scan their faces using SPACES’ unique, proprietary face scanning technology. Fans will be immersed in a free-roam, virtual reality battle with up to four people in a group.

Transforming locations into digital playgrounds, SPACES invites guests to engage their senses through virtual reality, haptic feedback and environmental effects that guests can reach out and touch. The moment they take off their headsets, guests immediately receive a cinematic video of their experience that they can take home and share on social media.

“At SPACES, we say ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ where guests are the stars of the experiences,” said Shiraz Akmal, SPACES CEO. “We provide consumers an incredible, virtual reality adventure where they can suit up and escape with their friends. Guests depart from SPACES and are transported into the action. We especially love that our experiences are meant to be shared; people repeat the experiences with friends and family again and again.”

The Cinemark SPACES is located at 925 Blossom Hill Rd., San Jose, CA 95123 in the Westfield Oakridge Shopping Center.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
