Snowfall on 11D screen

Around 60 lucky students of HH High School of Brambe experienced snowfall in Ranchi on Friday.

No, flakes of snow didn’t descend on the state capital. The occasion was a special screening of two 11-dimensional films for these children by Ranchi Samaritans Round Table, a social outfit, at Goosebumps, which observed its first anniversary on Friday at Spring City Mall.

Many children came from rural areas and had never even watched a 3D movie before. That’s why 11D was nothing short of magic.

“I have never experienced anything like this before,” a beaming Puja Kumari, a seventh-grader, said after watching the two short 11D films — SOS Planet and Roller Coaster based on global warming and racing, respectively. “I was thrilled when I felt snowfall inside the hall,” she added.

An 11D experience not only increases the perception of depth in movies manifold but also gives the audience the excitement of feeling rain, snow, thundershower, lightning, smoke and bubble simulations. Viewers can feel neck and air blasts, seat vibrations, strobes, leg ticklers and aromas sitting inside the theatre.

Siddharth Chaudhary, the PRO of Ranchi Samaritans Round Table, said: “Affluent children of the capital have experienced 11D many times over the past one year. For these students, it was new.”

He also thanked the management of Goosebumps. “They agreed to screen the movies for free for the children. We organised their transportation and other things,” he added.
