Ritestream, the NFT film funding platform, has announced a partnership with Planet Theta, the world’s first virtual reality dating app, to show films and build lasting relationships in the Metaverse. The partnership enables couples to date and socialise from the comfort of their own home, utilising Oculus and Steam VR headsets. Weeks’ worth of butterfly inducing first dates can now be fit in to the space of a few hours.
In addition to strolling through enchanted forests, visiting art galleries, or having a coffee over a game of cards, Planet Theta users will now be able to sit back and enjoy a movie from ritestream’s extensive bank of content.
The average movie theatre ticket cost in the U.S. has increased by 11 percent over the last 5 years. The price hike has compounded a Covid-hit industry, contributing to an exodus of moviegoers deserting cinemas across the country, with ticket sales in the U.S. declining from 1.4 billion in 2009, to 498 million in 2021. As movie theatres urgently rethink their offering, virtual dating cinemas provide a unique experience to connect with likeminded members.
