Paramount Pictures has partnered with IMAXÂ® on a first-of-its-kind Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2) experience for Christopher Nolanâ€™s highly anticipated â€œINTERSTELLAR.â€ The Oculus Rift DK2 traveling exhibit gives fans a virtual first look at the new film through an immersive experience at select AMC Theatre locations featuring IMAX screens.
The tour kicks off in New York, with stops in Houston and Los Angeles, before landing at the Air and Space Museumâ€™s Udvar-Hazy Center. Users in these cities will sit down, strap in, and travel in the filmâ€™s Endurance spacecraft in zero gravity with a custom Oculus Rift DK2.
The exhibit will be open from 11:00 a.m. â€“ 11:00 p.m. local time at the following locations:
New York City / AMC Lincoln Square 13 / October 6 â€“ 8
Houston / AMC Gulf Pointe 30 / October 17 â€“ 19

Guests of participating AMC Theatres can experience the exhibit free of charge on a first come-first served basis.
Less is indeed more in this quick, yet awesome experience thatâ€™s â€œliterallyâ€ out of this world. One of the coolest film promos ever in anticipation to Christopher Nolanâ€™s INTERSTELLAR, I was lucky to have had the privilege of being one of the first to experience this unique oculus rift. With simulated weightlessness moving around a space-capsule, along with mission command, intrigue for one of the most anticipated films this year has risen above our atmosphere. Fun in every way, shape, or form, I happily recommend YOU to check this out if you have the chance. If anything, itâ€™s kind of an artistic prerequisite prior to the release of the film, in theaters November 7, 2014!
