Motion-activated D-BOX seats arrive at Carmike 15

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Movie lovers, this weekend is a great time to stop by Carmike 15.

The Big D Theatre now features state of the art speakers and a more premium in-theatre experience.

The sound system will be in two auditoriums with 38 D-BOX seats.

For example, when a plane flies overhead, the sound is heard roaring above the guests and when a thunderstorm erupts, the intense sound comes from above.

The D-BOX seats use motion technology that synchronizes movements in the seats to go with the movie's on-screen action.

"The Big D large screen format originated here with our company as our concept," said Rob Kovacs, City Manager for Carmike Cinemas in Columbus. "We offer the Big D ceiling to floor, wall to wall screens, plush leather seating, and the new 11.1 3-D digital surround"

This weekend Carmike 15's Big D is featuring the highly anticipated premiere of Marvel's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 3D.
