Step into the Star Wars universe with virtual reality at Cinemark Plano

The rebellion needs you. Starting September 22 at Cinemark West Plano, you can step inside the Star Wars Universe with The Void, an in-theater virtual reality experience. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire transports guests deep into the beloved Star Wars universe, allowing them to walk freely and untethered throughout the full sensory experience.

In teams of four, your adventure begins as you don suits and virtual reality masks. Together, you walk down virtual streets, search out secret tunnels, send a proton blast to enemy demons and make memories of a lifetime in worlds far, far away. Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team’s orders.
