Paramount Pictures will transform Lights of Soho into a completely interactive and high-tech immersive pop-up experience to celebrate the launch of “Ghost in the Shell”, starring Scarlett Johansson.

Recreating the world of their latest Blockbuster movie, Ghost in the Shell, based on the graphic novel by Japanese manga artist, Masamune Shirow, the gallery space will be transformed into an immersive environment where guests can dive into the fictional world of the mid-twenty-first century Japanese city of Niihama, otherwise known as New Port City; the backdrop where The Major, Scarlett Johansson, a one-of-a-kind special operations, human-cyborg hybrid, leads an elite task force known as Section 9.
The representation of a post-cyberpunk civilization in Niihama reflects how computer technology has advanced to the point where many members of the public possess cyber-brains, which merge technology and human tissue to create a hybrid version of mankind that can connect to various external networks.
To bring this impressive theme to life, Lights of Soho will be kitted out with varying levels of modern technology to immerse guests into a fictional future via several mediums including interactive windows and interfaces representing and submerging guests into key moments of the film.
