VIDEO: Cineworld Sheffield to open new 4D screen with rain and wind effects
A Sheffield cinema is to become only the second place in the country to house a 4DX screen.
Cineworld Sheffield’s new 140-seat screen will include high-tech motion seats and special effects such as wind, fog, bubbles, water, rain and scents.
The technology, which hails from South Korea, is currently only available at Cineworld Milton Keynes.
But the new screen will open in Sheffield from October 22, with details of the first film being shown yet to be confirmed.
More than 200 recent films have been adapted to be shown in 4DX, including the new Avengers film and Fast and Furious 7.
The new screen comes as part of a major upgrade to Cineworld Sheffield which is seeing the foyer, bar area and box office refitted.
The new Sheffield 4DX will include the brand new ‘rainstorm’ effect – designed to bring to life on-screen inclement weather simulations.
Karen Godfrey, general manager at Cineworld Sheffield, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be expanding our entertainment offering here at Cineworld Sheffield.
“To be the second cinema in the UK to offer 4DX to our audiences is a huge accolade and we cannot wait to welcome audiences to come and try this new experience.
“We are always looking at the latest innovations in technology.”
