LOS ANGELES, May 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s leading cinema technology company, and Regal announced today that the latest round of ScreenX auditoriums in the U.S. will have opened this month in Nashville at Regal Opry Mills and Regal Hollywood, bringing the total number of Regal ScreenX theatres to 16. The first screening of the ScreenX format in Nashville will be Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla: King of the Monsters in the 270-degree panoramic screens of ScreenX.
ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection theatre technology that allows a 270-degree panoramic movie watching experience. ScreenX allows the audience to go beyond the frame of the traditional movie screen, utilizing a proprietary system to expand the center screen image to the side walls, surrounding audiences with imagery and providing a sense of being inside the movie.
“This has been a tremendous year as we find expansion at a rapid rate, thanks to our great partner Regal,” said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. “We are thrilled for audiences in Nashville to experience Godzilla: King of the Monsters in ScreenX, where the brilliant visuals and action sequences of the film will be highlighted and expanded onto the panoramic screens of ScreenX. We look forward to bringing more of these great cinematic experiences with our great partners to new cities and audiences in the future.”
“We are truly excited to be expanding our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX in bringing two new ScreenX locations to Nashville,” said Richard Grover, VP Communications at Regal. “The feedback we have been receiving from moviegoers has been enormously positive and we look forward to bringing more immersive and exciting new formats of CJ 4DPLEX to Regal audiences across the U.S.”
Audiences will be treated to an expanded world of Godzilla: King of the Monsters where battle sequences between ancient colossal creatures will be featured on all three screens of ScreenX, putting the audience directly into the middle of the action. As Godzilla stomps onto the main screen, the three-headed King Ghidorah will roar on the sides, and as the action unfolds, fog and debris will fly past with all the elements – rain, snow, thunderstorms, and fog – extending onto the side panels, recreating the atmosphere of the film inside the auditorium. Additional highlights include extensions of otherworldly visual sequences that accentuate and surround the audience – a lava-ridden underwater city, a deep ocean battle sequence, and a wide-eyed view of a rooftop cityscape as the city crumbles from the destruction.
