Calling all gamers! Don’t miss your chance at world domination…okay, maybe just in the world of video games, but you can do it live and on the big screen.
Starting Feb. 20, Showcase Cinemas together withSuper League Gaming—an in-theater video game league—will bring the popular Minecraft video game to select movie theaters across North America, including City Center 15: Cinema de Lux in White Plains, where a league is currently forming.
Minecraft junkies and gamers of all ages will have the opportunity to play face-to-face against other video game enthusiasts in the theater auditorium, as well as against thousands of others on the world leaderboard, while watching the action unfold live on the big screen.
This Minecraft experience called, “Galactic Mission,” is a custom, space-themed adventure in which gamers build and battle together in a fun environment inside a movie theater.
Here’s how it’s going down:
Over 80 theaters have installed Super League’s game server, specific-to-them, that plays the recreational league’s never-before-seen, custom-designed Mincecraft maps and mods.
For four weeks, players in participating theaters can play both individually and as a member of a team while the Minecraft game rotates between creative and survival modes. Gamers attend once a week and play alongside their team for 90 minutes. There are 4-7 gamers per team and players must bring their own fully-charged laptop, loaded with Mincecraft Version 1.8 or above.

And if you are a parent or a caregiver of young gamers? Worry not. You are welcome to stay and cheer on your little competitors while they play.
What do you get after your four-week journey, you ask? Well, other than bragging rights (and free ‘Galactic Mission’ jersey) the ultimate prize, a Super League championship trophy AND a $15,000 team scholarship doesn’t hurt either.
