The Movie Magic of ScreenX

Tue, 07/19/2022 - 10:35 -- Nick Dager

Launched in 2014 by the Korean producer of premium film formats and cinema technologies, CJ4DPlex, ScreenX is the world's first digital multi-projection theatre technology to enable a 270-degree panoramic movie watching experience. ScreenX uses a proprietary system to expand specially selected sequences of a film onto the left and right-side walls of an auditorium, surrounding the audience with exclusive imagery that makes them feel as if they’re inside the movie, creating a truly immersive experience. In the beginning, exhibitors, especially in the United States, were slow to embrace the new technology. In part, that was because so many were pre-occupied with the challenge of simply converting from film to digital projection and, in part, because CJ4DPlex was a new brand to them. But growing success in Korea and hard work by a lot of people paid off. In 2018, the ScreenX technology proved its worth at the worldwide box-office, with the successful panoramic release of Marvel Studios' Black Panther.

The Fate of the Furious is the most watched 4DX film of 2017, and is expected to surpass the 1.5 million-attendance mark. The box office success was driven by the best opening week performance in 4DX history, reaching 760,000 moviegoers – 31 percent more than the first week attendance for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens (580,000) in 2015.
