4D/4Dx movie theater review at Paragon Cineplex in Bangkok


Hey guyz, I’m in Bangkok with my new friend Jubril and we experienced tonight the Siam Paragon Cineplex Movie Theater which is a huge complex in Bangkok where you can watch movies and the specific thing about it is you can see a 4D movie It’s the 2nd 4D movie theater in the world and they don’t even have this in America It’s really a big adventure to watch a movie in Bangkok It’s not like in the West where you just go to the movie theater you buy your ticket and that’s it you watch the movie Here there are so many different options you have to choose before you watch a movie You can watch it in 2D, in 3D and even in 4D now and we are going to talk about it in a few seconds but basically they added a fourth dimension to it which means you can smell and feel the action You can watch the movie in a normal digital theatre or in an Imax theatre The difference being an Imax movie is captured on a larger film at a higher resolution so you can project it on a bigger screen and the one in Bangkok is absolutely huge It’s the size of a 8 floors building If you want to get the VIP treatment you can also ask to be in a smaller room with fewer people with luxury seats Usually there are around 30 to 70 seats You can ask to be in the Ultra Romance seats which are seats that come with curtains around so you get full privacy from the other viewers so it’s really good for couples or lovers You can also be in a smaller room where you can watch a movie laying on a bed and it comes with a waitress serving you unlimited popcorn, drinks and food So once you have decided in which kind of room you want to be you also have to decide in which seat category you want to be There are different prices whether you seat in the front, middle, back or side seats and seats are assigned here So it’s very complex to watch a movie to decide what ticket you want to buy in Bangkok Once you are in the room there’s also one other thing that happens that is different They show an ad for the king and everybody has to stand up and show respect and it’s kind of nice to see that everybody is doing it I guess if we were trying to do it in France a lot of people would stay seated So let’s talk about the 4D experience as it was really the highlight of the evening Let’s have a look at their website and see what features they have so first, the motion effects your seat can move and vibrate you can receive an air or water spray in the neck, on the face and on your legs get a kick in the butt or on the back and the chair can tickle your legs as well Then there are the environment effects They can diffuse more than a 1000 different scents or create fog, bubbles and wind in the room For those of you who have been to Disneyland It’s kind of a mix of Star Tours and Honey I Shrunk the Audience except that it’s being used for a movie that was not shot with the idea of adding that 4D technology to it so it’s just a regular movie and the first one to be released in Bangkok was Transformers 3 and tonight we saw Captain America So, on the paper, it looks very good and especially for action movies But let see what Jubril thought about the experience and how they used the technology to match the movie to increase the viewer’s experience It’s like nothing I have experienced before If i can give it to you in a short It’s kind of like going to Disneyworld and you put on the glasses and you can just kind of feel everything shaking around and you have water coming at your face but this is a movie Absolutely incredible experience So when you have a car scene you move and you have swerving all over the place Your chair is like wow wow It’s really kind of cool Then you have a quick water scene In front of your seat, pshhit It’s really kind of cool When you have a fight scene while they have the kick and doing all the action with the act of getting kicked you’ll feel a kick in the back of your seat It’s really kind of crazy And where the guns are flying You’ve got the Uzis and AK47 and everything In the back of your seat you’ll feel the bullets wizzing by your ear And the first time that happens you don’t even expect it Wow what was that? It’s really kind of cool Now this is probably one of the most memorables things for me It’s when he jumps out of the plane The seats are moving because of the wind and then also, the wind, you can feel it because they have some big fans that come down and it really gets cold and they have a few scenes like this and you just kind of wish you had a nice pretty girl you could kind of snuggle with make the scene a little better The price is absolutely amazing out here in Bangkok because this is a new technology It’s not even out in America yet and it’s about 400 baht which is about 12 USD and I can guess in Los Angeles it will be about 25 USD So if you get a chance to do it I definitely recommend it Can’t say enough about the 4D experience So we hope you liked the video If you want to see more travel videos Check out my blog and Jubril’s Youtube channel Bye
