QUESTION: What's an augmented cinema experience?
ANSWER: WILLY WONKY is an augmented, immersive, follow-along cinema experience, with commentary, jokes, and facts showing up pop-up video style to make you laugh. We also have prompts for the audience as a whole to speak along with, such as suggested moments to "Boooo!" our villain!
