Moviegoers in the Kansas City, Mo. area will get to experience their next flick not only through visual and audio pathways, but also through their seats. The AMC theater in Kansas City has just been upgraded with “Buttkicker” audio transducer technology from Guitarmmer Company.
This technology is like having a subwoofer right under your chair, and AMC will apparently make use of it during those pivotal (and presumably loud) dramatic scenes in the films being shown after the grand opening on May 1st. The Buttkicker technology is also used in several other locations, such as an IMAX theater in Massachusetts and The Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
