The next Terminator movie debuts tomorrow, and along with it,a new theater gimmick: moving seats. At a theater that will be showing Terminator Salvation in Bloomington, Minnesota's Mall of America, special seats will shake up startled moviegoers using patented D-BOX Motion Code to make them move along with the movie:
Each seat moves "in perfect sync" with the onscreen action; creating an unmatched immersive experience.
