Super League Gaming: kids can play Minecraft on theater screens


It’s not everyday that one gets to attend and event that aims to gather kids to play video games together in one room, much like the good old days of the arcades. There are regular gaming events, but most of them are dominated by teenagers and/or adults, while some are industry-exclusive, like the recently held Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

Now, just imagine having that kind of event for the very popular Minecraft. And being able to play the game in a big movie screen, and in a movie theaterwith lots of fellow players enjoying the game together. This is what the Super League Gaming is all about.

The Super League Gaming is the world’s first in-theater interactive video game event, where players get to play with other fellow gamers together on a movie screen. According to PR Newswire, the start-up event for the Super League Gaming is set to hit 80+ theatres across more than 28 major cities in the U.S., with a stopover at Seattle on July 29. To bring this one-of-a-kind gaming experience to the youngsters, Super League Gaming partnered with the biggest movie theater chains: Regal Entertainment Group, AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, and luxury cinema iPic Theatres.

The Super League Gaming will tour through 28 cities from June 15 to August 26, and the league gameplay, a six-week event, will commence on September 14.

Gamers who are interested to join can now grab their tickets, as there are only limited slots available. Tickets are available through their official site.

“It’s incredible how many kids are spending hours playing or watching YouTube videos of others playing this game. And we thought there just had to be a way to bring these kids, who were all playing alone in their rooms, together somehow. As a parent, you want your kids to explore their passions, but when they’re by themselves, consumed in this other world, you can’t help but want them to be out with other kids their age, connecting over shared passions. That’s what Super League is meant to do, bring gamers together for some good old fashioned competitive fun in a safe environment,” said Super League President and COO Brett Morris, via PR Newswire.
