Movies theaters to become arcades of the future?


Spain’s Yelmo Cineplex company recently splurged on a “Cinegames” setup, converting one of its small theaters into a sizable LAN arena. Inside, some 50 17-inch LCD screens have been bolted to armrests, a gamepad dangling below each one. Once the fog and low smoke start to roll in, the black light and flashing green lasers get going, and the seats start vibrating, one gets a sense of why this innovative concept could reinvigorate the movie theatre business — and resurrect the arcade.
