Like Cinema, Only Way More Intense
And with water
If you're a movie-going purist who'd rather lose a little finger than watch a film in 3D, move along. We've nothing for you here. If you're partial to advances in silverscreen technology, however, it's safe to say things have advanced. Cineworld Broad Street is now home to Brum's first 4DX screening room, an in equal measures brilliant and preposterous cinematic experience that involves watching the latest blockbuster in a moving chair while having scents, smoke, lights, air and water (yes water) blasted at you at relevant and synchronised moments in the movie. When subtle it enhances the experience immeasurably but, when at its most rigorous can take away from what's happening on screen. Either way, you absolutely need to try it. Prices start at £14.30.
