About
The Battle of Santo Domingo is a fully immersive 4D cinema experience. Visitors can enjoy the physical and virtual world of the 1586 walled city invasion of Santo Domingo lead by Sir Francis Drake - the most renowned seaman of the Elizabethan era. The film follows this fearsome pirate as he storms the city, presenting itself in nine languages simultaneously. Established to provide visitors with an introduction to the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, the film shares knowledge of the history, culture and values of the Dominican Republic through world-class technology. Much to their delight, visitors participate in a fully interactive and multi-sensory experience, one that includes a 3D movie with remarkable features such as motion seats, wind, mist, fog, heat and even bubbles! The Battle of Santo Domingo was awarded in the ITB Berlin - Cinema Festival 2016 and the winner of the #1 place for the Best Film of Cultural Tourism in the Internacional Film Festival "Art & Tur" Portugal 2016

Nice cinema experience very short movie interesting none the less. 4D was different and added to the experience. Although we are a couple we enjoyed it. Part of a TUI excursion which took 4 hours to get to Santo Domingo so nice change of scenery as it’s the first thing in the tour

Was a great experience, I remember the history due to the experience. It was also a nice cool break from the hot sun and walking tour we were on.

I went on a date here (not ideally romantic) but its was a fun outing and definitely not the same as your regular movie theater.

They have several movie packages, we chose the one that included Francis Drake's raid in Santo Domingo which was historically accurate. It was entertaining.

If you have kids under 10, they'll love it! It's really good for the younger kids because the movies are short and I think there's a snack bar. Its also a nice photo spot!

Like an Oasis in the Colonial Zone, this state of the art attraction is in the top of technology and ends with a perfect view of a history tale. Perfect for all ages. The staff attention, a full candy bar and a great environment makes a unique experience.

To be honest I didn't think this would very good but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The 3D effects are very well accomplished and the story itself was very good. This is an 8 to 10 minutes animated short film about the Hispaniola siege and invasion from Sir Francis Drake back in colonial times and it's historically accurate. The film is narrated in several languages (they have headphones on each seat where you can select your language). The seats are supposed to be the same ones they use on the Shrek 4D attraction in Universal Studios, Orlando FL. I would definitely recommend.
