There’s an exciting new promotion from Paramount Pictures and IMAX this month, using the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2) to create a unique experience for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated “INTERSTELLAR.”
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 Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center. Users in these cities will sit down, strap in, and travel in the film’s Endurance spacecraft in zero gravity with a custom Oculus Rift DK2.
The exhibit will be open from 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. local time at the following locations:
New York: AMC Lincoln Square 13 October 6 – 8

Guests of participating AMC Theatres can experience the exhibit free of charge on a first come-first served basis.
