Immersive VR Cinema Opens its Doors in the Heart of Paris

Virtual reality (VR) is more than just watching content—it’s about experiencing media in an entirely new way. It can take you places you’ve never been. Show you things you’ve never seen. Open your mind to realities you have only dreamed of.

Pickup, a France-based entertainment company that produces and distributes VR content, hopes to illustrate this point through the Samsung Gear VR at its recently opened PickupVRcinema, the first movie theater offering VR screenings in Paris, France.

PickupVRcinema aims to make VR a truly collective experience by bringing together more than 30 people at a time who simultaneously immerse themselves in the world of virtual reality.

During a typical VR screening at PickupVRcinema, the rush of emotion is tangible. The screams of couples, the laughter of families and the general excitement of the audience are just a few indicators of the uniqueness of the experience.

For their efforts to make VR a reality, Pickup was selected by this year’s Cannes Film Festival committee to manage the VR screening room of the festival’s Marché du Film. Discover VR firsthand at pickupVRcinema, located in the center of Paris, at 113 rue de Turenne.
