Gaming at Pathé
Due to its ever-increasing popularity, gaming is also gaining a larger place in Pathé cinemas, such as with Pathé Play, small-scale game events and the successful screening of finals of popular games such as League of Legends.
Bram van den Broek, Operational Director Pathé: “We are very proud to announce that the first Go!Gaming location will be starting at Pathé Schouwburgplein. We are always looking for the best way to serve our target groups. The popularity of gaming and esports is still growing, and where gaming used to be done at home and alone, we now see that gaming is becoming more of a collaborative activity at unique locations. Therefore, Go!Gaming is the perfect addition to our cinemas and will make them, even more, the place where people can enjoy the best forms of entertainment together.”
Matthijs Vink, co-founder H20 Esports Campus: “For months we have worked very hard with both companies on Go!Gaming. For H20 Go!Gaming is the ideal springboard to gaming and esports talent throughout the Netherlands. We hope to reach everyone with a passion for gaming in the major cities where Pathé cinemas are located. And to enthuse them to come to the H20 Campus to develop themselves further. But above all, we want to make gaming and esports accessible to a broad target group by offering a unique experience at the Go!Gaming locations”.
It is possible to reserve time slots via www.gogaming.gg. Go! Gaming uses the same opening hours as Pathé.
