Get ready for a Cineworld revolution because ScreenX is coming soon to the UK. Here's what you need to know.
What is ScreenX?
ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection system used within a theatre setting. It was created in 2012 by CJ CGV, part of South Korean conglomerate CJ Group, as one of the 'next cinema formats' along with 4DX, the multi-sensory cinema technology with motion and environmental effects.
It's the world’s first multi-projection theatre technology that provides moviegoers with a 270-degree panoramic viewing experience by expanding the screen onto the side walls of the auditorium. It crafts a fully immersive experience that pulls you into the world of your favourite films like nothing before.
Previous ScreenX movies have included Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. In 2018, Marvel blockbuster Black Panther and Dwayne Johnson monster movie Rampage also got the ScreenX treatment.
Where can ScreenX be found?
To date, ScreenX has been installed in 147 screens around the world, including 85 screens at 53 locations in South Korea; 44 screens in China; 4 in the United States; 4 in Turkey; 3 in Switzerland; 2 in France, 2 in Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia.
