The Showcase Cinema De Lux in Revere is just about ready to open up its immersive experience theatre. The cinema is the soon-to-be home of the first 4D Motion EFX theatre on the East Coast.
The movie theater is gearing up to offer “moving seats, air/water blasts, leg ticklers, fog, scents and other special effects for an exciting and realistic movie-going experience.”
