In addition to this, 20 more 4DX sites will be expanded across the EMEA regions to complete 60 remarkable 4DX locations.
 
"The success we have seen so far in this with this partnership has been outstanding and we expect our moviegoers will continue to seek out the newest titles in 4DX. Being at the edge of cinema exhibition is always a goal and working with CJ 4DPLEX is one of the ways we can deliver future-thinking cinema experiences to our audience members.” said Mooky Greidinger, CEO of the Cineworld Group.
