There are many classic movies that you won’t mind viewing several times. It’s even better when you can discuss them with your friends in the theater.
A Tokyo movie theater in Ikebukuro is showing “Rambo: Last Blood” this month, but the biggest difference from previous screenings is that the audience must discuss it through “text messages.”
In Japan, if a film has a large and loyal fan base, some revival screenings are open to discussion and any noise reactions from the audience during the screening, as was the case in previous films such as “Frozen,” “Shin Godzilla” and “Commando.”
Toho Cinemas in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, is screening “Rambo: Last Blood” in September. In response to the coronavirus preventative measures, the cinema allows viewers to use their mobile phones to type text and project their comments on the screen for all to see.
據報導，「無聲放映」場次是由電影院與日本影音串流平台Niconico Douga攜手合作的企劃，觀眾只要在電影開始前註冊登入Niconico Douga，並進入特別為觀眾開放的網站，即可利用手機或電腦傳送訊息。
According to the Sora news, the screening is a joint project with Dwango, owner of popular Japanese video streaming site Niconico Douga. Viewers can send messages on their phone or computer by signing in to Niconico Douga and accessing a special site before the movie starts.
The messages the attendees send will float across the screen.
