Bigscreen and Paramount Home Media Distribution announced today that Top Gun will be screened in 3D in Bigscreen’s virtual reality software. Beginning at 6:00 p.m. EST on December 29th fans can enter Bigscreen’s virtual theater lobby and have the option of meeting friends before entering the cinemas to watch a screening of Top Gun in 3D. The film will be shown at regular intervals for a period of 24 hours.

Bigscreen utilizes virtual reality to make users feel like they are in a physical movie theater, watching movies on a giant screen with immersive sound and lighting. With voice chat and avatars, Bigscreen also offers a social experience, allowing users in different locations to feel like they are sitting next to their friends watching movies or TV shows, browsing the web, and more.

“This is an innovative way to bring the immersive and social movie theater experience into the comfort of the home,” said Darshan Shankar, CEO and founder of Bigscreen.

“Bigscreen’s virtual reality platform offers a new way for fans to experience films in their homes,” said Bob Buchi, President Worldwide Home Media Distribution, Paramount Pictures. “We’re excited to be a part of this experiment using cutting-edge technology to give fans a new entertainment option.”

This event is only available to people in the United States, requires a VR headset, and a Windows 10 PC. Supported VR headsets include the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, all SteamVR-compatible headsets, and all Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
