Astro Taking Flight with D-BOX!

From The HD Room:

With Pandorum wrapping up its theatrical run, D-BOX Technologies has announced Summit Entertainment's CGI animated Astro Boy movie is next in line to take advantage of motion controlled seating.

Astro Boy is the first Summit Entertainment film to feature D-BOX Motion Code technology that matches action on-screen to pre-programmed chair movements. Previous films released theatrically with D-BOX have included Terminator Salvation and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Astro Boy opens October 23 and can be found with D-BOX MFX seats at the following seven theaters beginning this Friday: Cineplex Odeon Queensway Theatre in Etobicoke, Canada; Mann Chinese 6 Theatre in Los Angeles, California; Theatres at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota; Galaxy at the Cannery in Las Vegas, Nevada; Galaxy Highland Theatre in Austin, Texas; UltraStar Cinemas in Surprise, Arizona; and UltraStar Apple Valley in San Bernardino, California.
Sounds interesting. I wonder if I'll get a chance to check this out.
