Remember seeing Battlestar Galactica there in the late 70’s in all its “SENSOROUND” glory. By that stage it was pretty unloved but still had good crowds. I think the “Sensorround” movies were Earthquake (which I also saw), Battle of Midway and, as mentioned, Battlestar Galactica. HUGE speakers at the front on either side of the screen made the place shake!

Poor old forum it finished up being a bit of a dump.Last shot was to fit out and run sensorround films . Kit was acouple of big power amps stacked near the main sound rac,these amps powered tall sperker colums in the cinema triggered by a signal on the mono optical sound track the amps would send out huge room shaking frequency to ad to the experience,[this worked great on the Battle of Midway film with guns going off]problem was it was only one frequency so not much scope for development.It died , I think only 3 movies were made with type of sound track.
