CJ 4DPLEX is on pace to meet its goal to reach 50 4DX screens in Japan in the near future.

"We will concentrate on further expanding 4DX in Japan and look forward to broadening our business in the country's cinema industry.”

. Following up this box office hit, 4DX hit a new record in Japan with the screening

4DX’s average occupancy rate increased over 11% in the first quarter, as compared with the
corresponding period of last
year. Moreover, Japanese attendance also increased over almost 5 and a half times, increasing almost four times from 128,280 to 692.980 compared to the previous year.
