First launched in December 2022 by the innovative publisher Cassette (The Netherlands) and Diversion cinema (France), Nu:Reality originally showcased two VR programs, Journey Beyond Belief and Inner Journey, which featured eleven award-winning immersive experiences, at three separate cinemas.


2024: What’s to be expected ?


Joining the ranks of the initial cinemas Schuur, LantarenVenster, and LUX are Filmhuis Den Haag, Eye Filmmuseum, Concordia, and Slachtstraat. All seven cinemas will open their doors to the public for a brand new series of VR programs starting March 14th.


The inaugural program Naturally Immersive (March 14 - May 15) invites viewers to explore the marvels of nature through six mesmerizing VR works. Through this program, spectators will have the opportunity to journey 350 billion years into the past with Sir David Attenborough, hear the echoes of the now-extinct ʻōʻō bird, witness Earth reclaimed by nature, and immerse themselves in vibrant Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations.
