Bigscreen partners with Paramount Pictures to show 3D movies in VR
By Bigscreen Team • Issue #22 • View online
Today, we’re unveiling Bigscreen Cinema! We have signed a multi-year agreement with Paramount Pictures to distribute blockbuster 2D & 3D movies in virtual reality. We are launching Bigscreen Cinema in 10 countries, enabling people around the world to watch movies together in our virtual reality movie theater.

“Bigscreen’s virtual reality platform offers a new way for fans to experience films in their homes,” said Bob Buchi, the President of Paramount Pictures (Home Entertainment). “We’re excited to be a part of this experiment using cutting-edge technology to give fans a new entertainment option.”

Watch 3D movies together with friends in VR
If you’ve never watched a 3D movie in VR, prepare to have your mind blown. 3D movies in VR have a layer of immersion and depth not possible with 2D movies or traditional 3D movies in a theater with glasses.
4 new movies premiere every Friday at 6PM EST
If you miss the premiere showing, join another one! Showtimes are every 30 minutes, and movies run for 1 week before being replaced by new movies the following Friday.
If you can’t finish watching in one sitting, no problem: after you start watching, your ticket is still valid for showtimes within the next 48 hours as long as the movie is still available in Bigscreen.

Public and Private Screenings
Bigscreen Cinema also has social features, enabling you to watch movies together with people. You can watch by yourself, with friends in a private screening, or meet movie fans around the world in public screenings.
Cross-Platform VR Support
Bigscreen is fully cross-platform, and available on Oculus Quest, Oculus Go**, Oculus Rift/Rift S, Valve Index, HTC Vive, all Steam VR headset, and all Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
Oculus recently dropped support for the GearVR, so please note this is not available for GearVR. Oculus Go** currently is limited to private screenings and we’re working hard to enable public screenings on Go.
New Themed Cinema Environments
Our cinema environments include a new SciFi space station environment, and our classic favorites, a Modern Cinema and a Retro Cinema. Star Trek and Interstellar will be screened in custom space station environments with special visual effects only visible to movie attendees. Be sure to throw some popcorn in the SciFi cinema for a taste of low-gravity-goodness!
Launching in 10 Countries Around the World
We’re launching in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, Australia, and Japan!
It took enormous effort to launch internationally, when most companies only launch in the US! This covers 90%+ of our userbase today, and we’re working on adding more countries in the future.
Tickets are $3.99 (2D) & $4.99 (3D)
Purchase tickets in advance at https://www.bigscreenvr.com/cinema (prices vary by country/currency). You can also browse our upcoming lineup for the next month, which includes blockbuster hits like Interstellar, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Terminator 2, Top Gun 3D, and more!
