Dive-in Movie Night presents TRON (1982) - VR and a movie

Movie magic like you’ve never experienced before.

Dive in to the silverscreen and immerse yourself in the worlds of the most iconic movies. Each month, Dive-in Movie Night pairs a film with a VR game that matches the film’s feel and universe.

You’ll get unlimited play time in VR ahead of the start of the movie, sharing turns with other Dive-in Movie night attendees. When its time for the movie to begin, the VR headsets will be put away, the projector screen pulled down and the theatre seats brought out. Snuggle in with a drink and enjoy the film!

Tron (1982)

When a brilliant video game maker named Flynn hacks the mainframe of his ex-employer, he is beamed inside an astonishing digital world and becomes part of the very game he is designing.

“It’s 1982, and the first golden age of videogames is in full swing. Atari is still at the height of its powers with the world’s most popular console, the 2600. When Tron appeared in 1982, its visual effects were a remarkable sight…So distinctive and memorable is Tron’s imagery, it’s easy to forget that there is a plot beneath the psychedelic visuals…Years before the internet became ubiquitous, Tron envisioned a virtual world where we could reinvent ourselves as new characters in cyberspace. We may not be wearing glowing spandex and throwing deadly Frisbees just yet, but whether we like it or not, we’re all plugged into the Grid now.” - Den of Geek
