Select theaters will feature an interactive Terminator Genisys game before the movie starts
It’s normally frowned upon to have your smartphone out in a movie theater, but not if you’re going to see the new Terminator Genisys movie next week. Paramount has just announced that it’s releasing an interactive game that can be played on both Android and iOS devices before the movie begins at select AMC IMAX theaters.
The game is based on Glu Mobile’s Terminator Genisys: Revolution and is apparently the first ever playable in-theater game of its kind. To play the game, interested movie attendees will be asked to take out their mobile devices, join a secure and closed Wi-Fi network (no downloading required), and that’s about it. Each person in the theater will be assigned to one of four teams and, using their devices, will aim and shoot at attacking cyborgs on the movie screen.
The game will only last three minutes and won’t be playable when the movie begins. Additionally, the winning team will receive a special poster following the movie. AMC will give out posters until July 2nd, or while supplies last. The game will be available at the following theaters:
- New York (AMC Lincoln Square IMAX 13)
- Los Angeles (AMC Universal CityWalk 19 with IMAX)
- San Francisco (AMC Metreon IMAX 16)
- Boston (AMC Boston Commons IMAX 19)
- Dallas (AMC Northpark IMAX 15)
Terminator Genisys arrives in theaters Wednesday, July 1st.
