Traffic Park to have 5 D theatre

The Traffic park at Dharampeth is set to open Nagpur's first 5D Theatre.

With a seating capacity of 16, the theatre has been equipped with systems like leg ticklers, back pokers and base shakers, which would give the viewer a real feeling of something crawling up the leg or moving up the back in synch with the movie. With the help of digital projection systems and ones which would provide environmental effects like artificial snowfall and smoke screens, the movies would come to life to provide a surreal viewing experience.

Describing the viewing experience, Atul Tibra, who has brought the project to the city, says, "this theatre has been set up at a cost of Rs 35 lakh by a Gwalior-based firm Modern Techno Projects, which specialises in the business. The 4-D systems are limited only to seat effects like the leg tickler and back poker or base shaker that the viewer feels while watching the film. With 5-D he can experience snowfall, lightening, high winds and even smells. In future we can further enhance this by adding more fans, acoustics and features on the ceiling."

The ticket cost for a show would vary between Rs 80 to Rs 100 depending upon the length of the film
