Seoul, South Korea and Los Angeles, CA—Jan 10, 2018
Following Strong Box Office Results Coast-to-Coast, CJ 4DPLEX and Regal Expand 4DX U.S. Roll-Out Plan with Washington, D.C. as Newest Opening
3.5 Years After 4DX U.S. Debut in Los Angeles, Successful Innovative Cinema Technology Bringing Motion Seats and Environmental Effects to Moviegoers Across the Country – Including in Atlanta, Chicago and Houston
CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s No.1 4D cinema company, and Regal Entertainment have expanded its partnership to bring the immersive 4DX technology to additional theatres across the U.S.
Previously available on five Regal screens, the newest 4DX location is the Regal Gallery Place Stadium 14 in Washington D.C., the first in the market, which had a soft opening last month, and has its official grand opening planned for today, January 10th. Additionally, 15 new locations have been confirmed, including in Atlanta, Chicago and Houston, with several more to open in the coming years.
“The performance of 4DX at our theatres continues to impress with each new opening, and we can’t wait to bring moviegoers in new markets access to one of the most exciting cinema formats in the industry,” said Regal Entertainment SVP, Chief Technical & Theatre Operations Officer Rob Del Moro. “We continue to look for new ways to be innovative while identifying new opportunities for revenue and to present our audiences with innovative experiences. Expanding our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX and the reach of 4DX via Regal locations is another example of our commitment to these goals.”
4DX – which features effects such as motion, vibration, rain, wind, bubbles, lightning, scent and more, incorporated into popular movies to bring fans into the action – launched in the U.S. at Regal L.A. LIVE in June 2014, and then expanded to include two Regal theatres in New York City, and one each in Orlando and Seattle this year. Strong results over the past year include:
· An average occupancy rate of 40 percent - well above industry averages - most recently, a stellar opening for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Regal theatres with 4DX in Los Angeles and Union Square, NYC, virtually sold out every showing from Thursday, December 14 through Sunday, December 17, with theatres in Seattle, Orlando and Times Square (NYC) averaging between 79 and 85% occupancy throughout the weekend.
· Gross box office results at Regal’s 4DX auditoriums that were 2.86x stronger than non-4DX auditoriums in the same theatres. For example, Kong: Skull Island saw its gross box office performance in 4DX average 5.39x higher than non-4DX showings; and
· 4DX revenue at Regal locations making up an average of 14 percent of the theatre’s total, more than double that of a non-4DX auditorium (6 percent).
“We are thrilled to expand on this strong relationship with a great partner in Regal,” said Brandon Choi, COO of CJ 4DPLEX. “They were among the first in the U.S. to believe in the value of 4DX. We are proud and humbled that they continue to show confidence in 4DX, and will be the largest provider of our experience to American moviegoers.”
