CJ 4DPlex and EVT, owners of Event Cinemas, the largest movie exhibitor in Australia, announced today that they have expanded their partnership to open the first ScreenX auditorium in Australia at Event Cinemas Robina on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Event Cinemas ScreenX will hold more than 140 seats, including the choice to upgrade to a recliner. With screens spanning three walls, the theatre can display a picture up to 67.7 meters wide.

ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection cinema with an immersive 270-degree field of view. By expanding specially selected sequences of a film onto the left and right-side wall of the auditorium, ScreenX surrounds audiences with exclusive story-enhancing imagery that naturally fills their peripheral vision and immerses them into the narrative of the film.

ScreenX works closely with filmmakers and studios to ensure the highest quality presentation of the film. To date, there are more than 355 ScreenX auditoriums around the world in 38 countries. 

“Our one-of-a-kind ScreenX is a welcomed expansion to our growing collaboration with EVT and Event Cinemas who are pioneers in the entertainment and leisure sector in Australia,” said Jong Ryul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPlex. “We look forward to more audiences experiencing movies in our premium format with a larger screen and deluxe seating.”

“We are thrilled to strengthen our partnership with EVT through Event Cinemas by premiering Australia’s first ScreenX theater,” said Don Savant, chief business officer, CJ 4DPLEX. “Our talented team of ScreenX visual effects artists work closely with the Hollywood Studios and top talent to truly differentiate movie going. ScreenX provides an unparalleled experience in a completely unique format to watch the biggest blockbuster films.”

“At Event Cinemas, we are dedicated to bringing world class cinema experiences to our consumers,” said Luke Mackey, director of entertainment for EVT. “We are excited to continue our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX and are proud to be the first to introduce ScreenX to the Australian market and further expand our cinema experience offering.”

The CJ 4DPlex and Event Cinemas’ partnership began in 2018 with the launch of CJ 4DPplex’s multi-sensory 4DX theatre at Event Cinemas George Street in Sydney, Australia. Event Cinemas now has four 4DX locations operating across Australia at Parramatta, Pacific Fair, and Chermside along with the inaugural George Street location.
