IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE STORY ARCADE® OPENS IN STARRETT-LEHIGH
In partnership with RXR Reality LLC and the Starrett-Lehigh Building, the Future of StoryTelling (FoST) has launched a limited-run NYC-based Story Arcade® pop-up. The month-long showcase will feature an incredible sampling of immersive, experiential, and multisensory exhibits utilizing emerging technologies: VR, AR, AI, haptics, robotics, 360 video, and more!
In addition to the eight category-altering exhibits, the Story Arcade will also feature several smaller hands-on projects, as well as a beautiful lounge space designed by Convene and furnished by Design Within Reach for guests to enjoy between attractions. Attendees are no longer passive consumers of entertainment at the Story Arcade but instead are active participants in the adventures. The Story Arcade features the best of next-generation storytelling!
Story Arcade highlights include MWM Immersive’s VR+immersive theater piece based on Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, Chained: A Victorian Nightmare, which was a sold-out smash hit in LA; Felix & Paul’s official 2019 Sundance Selection, Traveling While Black, a VR documentary created by Roger Ross Williams, the first African American director to win an Academy Award®; and Birdly’s Jurassic Flight, a robotic flight simulator flies guests through a prehistoric landscape featuring the flora, fauna, and—of course—the dinosaurs that lived over 150 million years ago!
The Story Arcade will be open February 23–March 24 and will be located on the 3rd floor of the Starrett-LehighBuilding (601 26th Street, Suite 301).
