In collaboration with New Media Scotland, we bring the first Atmosphere to Dundee, an expanded cinema experience that will excite all your senses.

On the 30th anniversary of the Fix It Felix Jr. arcade game, Ralph is still playing the bad guy. His only job is to wreck the Niceland apartment building so that Felix can fix it back up again. But there are no piping hot power-up pies for Ralph. He dreams of one day being the hero and winning a medal.

Rich Moore’s brilliantly conceived 2012 Disney animated feature appeals to all ages, with references to video games old and new. With prizes for high scores and best costumes, come explore the spaces inside and between the arcade machines. It’ll be everyone’s duty to have a sugar rush.

Atmosphere is our most popular research programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theatres from the 1920s and 30s. Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.
