VR Theater screenings are open to attendees with a Full Conference or Full Conference Platinum pass only and can be obtained at the VR Theater Ticket desk in Registration (South Lobby) one day in advance of screening times. Tickets go quickly, so we recommend showing up before the desk opens (daily at 8:30 am). Example scenarios*:

For Wednesday tickets, line up Tuesday
For Thursday tickets, line up on Wednesday
* Sunday screenings are Full Conference Platinum only.

The VR Theater is showing one, 1-hour program of the best of VR narratives, so every ticket is same experience. Showtimes begin 15 minutes in advance of start to encourage early arrival. No-shows forfeit seats to the waitlist 10 minutes prior to show start.

Eliminate wait time for the VR Theater Kiosks and Immersive Pavilion Arcade! As a pilot at SIGGRAPH 2019, these Experience Hall venues will allow participants to sign up on a first-come, first-served basis. Show up early to sign up for the waitlist, then explore the rest of South Hall K while you wait your turn. When your time comes, our system will text you. If you fail to show up within 10 minutes of receiving a text, we will move on to the next person on our list.

Established in 2017, the VR Theater has quickly become the talk of the conference and a hot ticket to get. As the art of VR evolves, it becomes more interactive, more social, and more accessible.
