When Tommy heard about a little 4D Cinema in the middle of Melbourne, he knew he had to go and check it out. But who wants to go to the movies alone right? So Meshel and a whole bunch of listeners rocked up to experience this little 4D Cinema run by the amazing Jun first hand! Strap on your seat belts!

Have you ever watched a film critic interview a major film director inside a 4D cinema, while watching a 4D movie? Let’s assume the answer is no. Therefore, you’ve come to the right place.
For pure, adrenalin-fuelled and intelligently made entertainment, Edgar Wright is one of my favourite contemporary directors. This guy found a way to make a zombie movie intense, funny and romantic in his first featureShaun of the Dead (2004), which is rightfully lauded as the world’s first rom-zom-com. Wright’s follow up films Hot Fuzz (2007) and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) are every bit as sassy and enjoyable.

THE 4D Dynamic Cinema
Toby Fehily January 2013
I've been to the fourth dimension. Everyone there is charming. Old people aren't allowed in.
It popped up out of nowhere just over a month ago in the Melbourne Theosophical Society building. All those arcane texts and rituals must have unlocked it. But, surprisingly, it's a small operation out front. So small that you and your friends are likely to be the only ones there on your visit. There's no flurry of white lab coats here, just a sweet, softly spoken father-son duo waiting patiently on the street, handing out pamphlets to the passers-by.
Naturally, you'll wear a seatbelt. There are handles for you to grip. Four suites full of options are on offer: Roller Coaster, Dinosaur, Adventures and Scary Movies. Each option lasts ten minutes.

My plans for a peaceful long weekend were dealt a death blow when I saw a sign on the street that read “4D Dynamic Cinema”. I wandered in to take a look. This is my story.
I was about to order a pint at a pub on Russell Street, in the heart of Melbourne CBD, when I noticed a sign on the other side of the road. It read, in slightly fuzzy red letters, “4D Dynamic Cinema.”“Do you know what that’s all about?” I asked the British guy behind the bar.“Nup,” he said. “4D cinema, how do you even do that?”My mind shot back to Universal Studios in LA more than a decade ago, when myself and a friend waited 45 minutes in the blistering sun to experience the unfortunate 15 minute “ride” Shrek 4D.

Movies that smell, blow air and shake you are just the start. Here comes the 4th dimension.
Sydney's newest tourist attraction is a small cinema that appeals to more than just the usual two senses of sight and hearing. The Sydney Tower Eye has a floor that vibrates as waves crash against rocks on screen, a spray of mist as a skiff crosses the harbour and rushing wind as a father and son fly kites during a short 3D film that shows off the city's sights. ''It's a 4D experience, then you experience the views for real on the top of the observation deck,'' says Rob Smith from Merlin Entertainments (Australia), whose parent company also runs 4D cinemas at the London Eye and Blackpool Tower in England.
