PH’s first MX4D Motion EFX theater opens in Vista City, Daang Hari

People from the Metro South, rejoice! You can now experience the best cinema experience available in the world as Vista Cinemas opened its second location at Lifestyle Center in Vista City after opening the first branch in Taguig.

Evia Lifestyle Center is located in Vista City, Daang Hari (Las Piñas-Muntinlupa-Cavite Road / LAMUCAR). The four new movie theaters equipped with unique top-of-the-line features are now ready to redefine the movie-watching experience in the Southern Metro.

Three of the four newly opened cinemas are fitted with the latest and the best in audio technology, Dolby Atmos, which allows movie-goers to feel like they’re part of every scene. Sound produced by the Atmos System is projected from every direction in the cinema and moves with the action on-screen – creating a one-of-a-kind movie experience.

Apart from this world-class sound system, all four theaters of the Vista Cinemas are equipped with luxury seating from the Figueras and Luxos brands available only in select locations around the world.

Figueras is a Spanish brand that specializes in crafting high-end seating for public spaces. Their seats can be found in places such as The White House and the Philharmonie de Paris. Luxos is a specialized line developed by the Japanese furniture brand Okamura. Luxos is a new and original concept of a lounge chair with a lower, reclining seating posture that provides added comfort through its active back structure and smart operation.

Couples living and working in the area can now also get to experience world-class movie dates. Vista Cinema 2 at Evia Lifestyle Center has thirty-one customized love seats that take the romantic movie experience to a whole new level of comfort and coziness.

Best of all, Vista Cinema now brings the first and only MX4D Motion EFX Theater in the country to Southern Metro Manila. This latest evolution in 4D cinema technology features MX4D theater seats that move in-sync with the action on-screen, while special EFX generators inside the cinema make viewers feel every jolt, poke, tilt, plus timed wind and mist atomizers. Vista Cinema’s MX4D theater lets residents in the south enjoy the latest cinema innovations without them needing to go too far from home, avoiding the stress and traffic of the busy Central Metro.

“The flagship MX4D® Philippines installation features MMI’s patent-pending EFX armrest. The unique special EFX delivery system, available as an option from MMI, allows scents, wind, air blasts and water blasts to emanate from each theatre patron’s individual seat armrest.”

The two recently opened top-of-the-line movie theaters are only the first phase of growth for Vista Cinemas. With more Vista Cinema locations all over the country set to open within the year, more Filipinos can look forward to a new era of premier movie viewing, right by their doorstep.
