RedSeat Entertainment installs first Tremor FX chairs in Caribbean Cinemas
RedSeat Entertainment announced at ShowEast that Caribbean Cinemas has become the first movie theatre in the world to install the company’s Tremor FX active theatre seats. Caribbean Cinemas installed 70 Tremor FX chairs in two of its HD theatres at the new Galeria 360 theatre in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Tremor FX technology incorporates dynamic vibrations into movies through a series of actuators built into each seat, causing the chair to vibrate and pulsate in response to audio signals embedded in a film’s individual soundtrack. These vibrations occur in tandem with the action in the film, adding an extra layer of engagement for moviegoers.
“Tremor FX is a great way for our customers to fully immerse themselves in a film,” said Gregory Quinn, vice president of Caribbean Cinemas Dominican Republic. “Instead of just seeing the movie, they are feeling it too, which really makes them a part of what is happening on screen.”
Tremor FX chairs are the same size as standard theatre chairs, simplifying and streamlining the theatre conversion process. RedSeat teamed up with Seating Concepts to build and distribute the Tremor FX seats.
