first-4-d-movie-theater-to-open-in-americaYou’ve probably heard of 3D movies – but the first commercial “4-D” movie theater in California is about to offer a movie going experience like no other.

This pioneering movie theater will be located in Los Angeles and will open with a late-night showing of Transformers: The Age of Extinction.

The “4D” experience includes a 3D movie, combined with features like sensor-equipped motion seats, wind, strobe, fog, rain and scents.

The company behind this incredibly innovative movie-going experience – South Korea’s CJ 4DPlex – is betting that 4D will be the next wave in the film industry.

Movies have to be adapted to be played in 4D – recent titles to be given the 4D treatment include Captain America: The Winter Soldier and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

4D systems are currently installed in about 23 countries, including Bulgaria, China, Chile, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.
