In the company’s third appearance at CinemaCon, CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s first 4D cinema company for feature films, will be showcasing its three newest effects – snow, rainstorm and warm air – for the first time to a public audience. 4DX’s catalogue of standard effects include: motion, water, rain, fog, wind, air, lightning, bubbles, ticklers, scents and vibration. The three add-on effects can be installed by 4DX auditoriums around the world to bring their audiences an even more immersive experience when watching realistic scenes involving, for example, floods, explosions, earthquakes, tornados and fires.
At CinemaCon, 4DX will be located in the Augustus Ballroom in Booth #2003. At the booth, convention-goers will be able to experience a mini demo exhibiting all 4DX effects including 3 new add-on effects. 4DX – which is nominated for an Edison Award, to be handed out on April 24 – made a splash in at CinemaCon 2014, announcing its first U.S. theater roll-out via a partnership with AEG to add a 4DX experience to the Regal L.A.
