Experience a spooky virtual reality this Halloween

We, at team OutSavvy, are always looking out for new fun and - at this time of year – scary things to do. We think we have found a very different experience for you this Halloween: Veero, the UK’s first Virtual Reality (VR) cinema.

Veero opens its spooky Halloween pop-up on Neal Street in Covent Garden from Thursday 26th October. You'll wear an individual headset and a pair of 3D headphones, while sitting on a comfortable swivel stool that enables you to easily look at the action all around you. Not only will the image move with your head, but the sound will move too, making you really believe the environment you are in is real. They’ll show a compilation of horror shorts from acclaimed directors. Drinks and snacks are available for purchase.

Veero is presenting their Haunted Cinema popup in partnership with WeAreCinema, Zurich-based experts in delivering pop-up virtual reality experiences.

Veero hope to bring the worldwide explosion in VR to the UK. There are over 1000 VR cinemas or arcades in China alone, yet the only permanent VR cinema in Europe is in Amsterdam. (Incidentally, it’s sold out most nights.) Beyond this pop-up, Veero will open a permanent central London flagship in early 2018.

We caught up (in real reality) with Barry Whyte, founder of Veero:

“A new golden age of Hollywood is coming. Virtual Reality cinema completely changes the rules. As the UK’s first virtual reality cinema, we'll ensure the VR films find their place alongside the world’s finest theatre - right in the heart of London’s West End. No longer will viewers have to sit at home with a headset on to enjoy immersive films. Veero makes VR social, and accessible to everyone.

“Horror is one of the strongest sub-genres within VR film, so it’s perfect for Halloween. We can’t wait to terrify Covent Garden!”

We can’t wait to be terrified either!
