Watch ‘Akira’, ‘Shin Godzilla’, and ‘Attack on Titan’ in a Virtual Reality Movie Theater!

Miss the feeling of sitting in a theater? Well, those with virtual reality headsets can experience the good old days, thanks to Bigscreen.

While the concept of a “virtual theater” isn’t exactly new, Funimation is teaming with Bigscreen – the leading virtual reality software platform – to program an ongoing slate of popular anime films from Akira to “Attack on Titan” and more for Bigscreen’s massive virtual reality audience.

The virtual anime movie theater launches with over 30 movies with additional new releases and popular titles added throughout the year. To kick off the launch, Funimation and Bigscreen have programmed special weekend screenings of films starting May 1 with fan favorite Your Name.

The special live film screenings that begin May 1 are a chance for viewers around the country to co-view the movie in virtual reality. Bigscreen supports infinite concurrent viewers to watch live together in groups of up to 8 people per theater room. The films are broadcast live on a pay-per-view basis at 6PM Pacific (9PM Eastern) and cost $3.99.

In Bigscreen’s virtual world, users can customize personal avatars, hang out in a virtual lobby, and voice chat with other movie fans. Movies are streamed on screens inside virtual cinemas, providing a social movie watching experience. Users can enjoy films alone or invite up to seven friends to join them in a theater.

Check out the below demo:
