Drayton Manor’s 4-D Cinema features 152 moving seats and a variety of special effects such as water sprays and air blowers. The park rotates the movie that is shown in the cinema every season, with all having been family-friendly animations so far.
The 4-D Cinema will host a new film during the 2013 season, with "A Fish Story" being shown in the venue. The musical animated film's plot focuses on Deepo, an orange Garbaldi fish, and Billy, a trainee at the aquarium who "magically" turns into a fish.
Together, Garibaldi and Billy travel to the depths of the ocean, coming across a variety of lively creatures including dolphins, jellyfish, sharks and sea turtles.
The 15-minute film has replaced The Little Prince 4-D, which was shown in the 4-D theatre during the 2012 season. Alongside the on-screen 3-D animation, the action will be synchronised with physical effects including moving chairs, water sprays and bursts of air.
