Experience the Ultimate Mind-Trip When Science Meets Cinema With “MindGamers: One Thousand Minds Connected Live” In U.S. Movie Theaters on March 28 Only
Fathom Events Teams With Terra Mater Film Studios For a Special One-Night, One-of-a-Kind Event That Will Connect Moviegoing Audiences Live Across the Country.
“MindGamers” asks the question: What if you could instantly share the mind and skills of Stephen Hawking, Beyoncé, Lebron James or anyone and everyone on the planet? Based on contemporary science, “MindGamers: One Thousand Minds Connected Live” will re-imagine the modern moviegoing experience with the very first “action film for the mind.” This one-of-a-kind event will be shown in U.S. cinemas for one night on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 8:00 p.m. CT/ 7:00 p.m. MT/ 6:00 p.m. PT, with playback at 7:00 p.m. local time for AK/HI, from Fathom Events and Terra Mater Film Studios.
While this live event takes place, 1,000 people from the movie theater audience will participate in the experiment by wearing a cognition headband. These headbands will enable scientists to capture the cognition state of the participants simultaneously via cloud technology and collect data in real time. The result will be a world-first image of a mass-mind state (the likes and scale of which has never been attempted), which could drive our research into the nature of human cognition for years to come.
This special, live cinema event will open with introductory talks from Tim Mullen and Mikey Siegel, both leaders in the fields of technology, neuroscience and the collective consciousness. The feature “MindGamers,” billed as “the first action film for the mind” will follow. The event will conclude with a live Q&A and revealing of the first image of a
Tickets for “MindGamers: One Thousand Minds Connected Live” can be purchased online beginning Friday, February 3, 2017, by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

Headlined by Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park”) and Tom Payne (The Walking Dead), the feature film “MindGamers” is innovative grounded science fiction fare (Black Mirror, The OA and Westworld). It follows a group of brilliant young students who create a wireless neural network with the potential to link every mind on earth via a quantum computer. Capable of transferring motor-skills from one brain to another, they have brought into existence the first shareware for human motor-skills. They freely spread this technology, believing it to be a first step towards a new equality and intellectual freedom. But they soon discover that they themselves are part of a much greater and more sinister experiment, as dark forces emerge that threaten to subvert this network into a means of mass-control.
“This is truly a new experience for cinema audiences,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “To present live data from a collective conscious of moviegoers will be a fascinating and incredible feat, and we are thrilled to help bring this content to the big screen!”
“As a studio, we have taken on the challenge to create cinema that pushes new boundaries and goes beyond the ordinary,” Walter Koehler, CEO of Terra Mater commented. “’MindGamers’ is the creative engine to a world-first moment in neuroscience history, and we are proud to partner with Fathom and bring this to our audience live.”
