A MOVIE THEATER can become a torture chamber and cause damage to those with inner / middle ear / brain / adrenal issues. Be very careful out there.

The damage can stay with one, long after the movie ends (and that includes adrenal hits, too).

Obviously, none of these special effects are a good idea for someone dealing with lyme &/or inner & middle ear issues.

I don't think they are a good idea for any human or animal, either. This is so very sad that it's come to this intense need for a "high hit" -

Even without these new effects, the sound / vibration environment is unsafe. Even if you think you are choosing a movie that should be safe, take ear plugs for you just never know.

Seats that move! Rain! Movie-watching goes beyond 3D

By Channon Hodge - CNNMoney - Aug. 24, 2016

Seven Slides at link, captions for those:

Movie theaters are facing competition from your couch.

But some in the industry are hoping to lure people out of their homes and back to the movies with immersive special effects called 4DFog helped recreate the steamy jungle atmosphere in Disney's "The Jungle Book."

Think strobe lights, seats that move with the action, even the scent of coffee.

1. Viewers watching "Batman v Superman" in 4DX felt the breeze as Bruce Wayne ran through a graveyard in one of the movie's earliest scenes. That's thanks to face air technology, shown here in an artistic rendering.

2. To make a real splash with viewers, water rains down in relevant scenes. Prefer to stay dry? A button at your seat lets you turn off the effect quicker than you can open an umbrella.

3, Seats can give a little push in the lower back or tickle the legs at the right moments.

4. Fog helped recreate the steamy jungle atmosphere in Disney's "The Jungle Book."

[Poster's interjection here: Can you imagine the environment for mold this creates in the seat cushions that spurts all that steam? What's this going to do to the lungs of the young audience members? The rain effect, too, in that the vessel holding that water is likely not sterile.]

5. As the characters in "Zootopia" travel into Tundratown, the audience can get its own touch of winter thanks to snow effects.

6. Strobe lights add to the 4DX atmosphere. Strobe light effects made "Thor" seem even more superpowerful as he conjured up thunder and lightning.

[Poster's interjection: major seizure alert, major! This could also cause first time seizures.]

Just recently I've been going to a few movies- which was a no no for many, many years. Way too sick.

Per your advise, I always take my ear plugs, dark glasses and my blankie (cause I freeze in there).

It's not to bad that way. If we could get them to reduce the price of pop corn and drinks that would be nice too!

I would have to pass on all the "extras" in movie theaters.

They really are pretty loud .. and cold.
