Regal to Open First ScreenX Theatres in New York and San Francisco on September 6

Panoramic 270-Degree Cinematic Format to Debut with Warner Bros. Pictures' Horror Film The Nun
CJ 4DPLEX  and Regal announced today that the latest ScreenX locations in the U.S. will open in New York City and San Francisco on Thursday, September 6. The launch will mark the first theatres in each of these cities to feature ScreenX, the premium, panoramic, 270-degree cinema environment that projects films on three walls of the auditorium. With these openings, ScreenX is to expand its domestic presence to seven locations.

The new ScreenX installations will be located at Regal Union Square Stadium 14 in New York City and Regal Hacienda Crossings Stadium 20 in San Francisco. Both theatres are part of the previously announced major expansion plan with the Cineworld Group and its subsidiaries, which include Regal, to bring 100 ScreenX screens locations to the U.S. and Europe in the coming years.

The latest ScreenX openings bring the total global footprint to 154, in 12 countries. Worldwide the number of ScreenX theatres has increased exponentially, with auditoriums opening in Western Europe for the first time and with additional locations to launch across China, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, France, Turkey and the Middle East by the end of 2018.

"We have seen a great expansion of our 4DX cinema technology, and are beyond thrilled to see ScreenX following in its path. Cineworld and Regal have been excellent partners that have shown us great support and understand our vision to push the limits of what is possible inside of a movie theatre auditorium. It is an exciting time as we launch two simultaneous openings with 'The Nun' being the first Hollywood horror film to be screened in the format. It will be quite a visceral, stunning experience," saidBrandon Choi, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX America.

"After the successful opening at our Edwards Irvine Spectrum theatre in Southern California, we are excited about the opportunity to bring more ScreenX theatres to New York and San Francisco," said Ken Thewes, CMO at Regal. "We're always looking for innovative technologies to engage our audiences and ScreenX offers a new level of excitement for our guests to experience movies in an incredible immersive new way."

The release of The Nun in ScreenX is part of a larger agreement with Warner Bros. to release several films in the immersive format, following the previously released The Meg and Rampage, and including the much-anticipated Aquaman and Shazam!.

ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection theatre technology designed to enhance the moviegoing experience. ScreenX allows the audience to go beyond the frame of the traditional movie screen, utilizing a proprietary system to expand select scenes of feature films and pre-show advertising to the left and right walls.

About The Nun:
New Line Cinema's horror thriller The Nun explores another dark corner of the "Conjuring" universe, whose record-setting films have terrified audiences around the globe.

The new fright-fest, directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and produced by James Wan, and Peter Safran, the latter of whom has produced all the films in The Conjuring franchise, delves into the shocking origin of the demonic Nun Valak, who first made her evil presence known in The Conjuring 2.  

When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order's unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned. The Nunstars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (A Better Life) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TV's American Horror Story) as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet (Elle) as local villager Frenchie. The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (TV's Game of Thrones) as the abbey's Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (Toni Erdmann) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her Conjuring 2 role as the title character. 

Hardy directs The Nun from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (It), story by James Wan & Gary Dauberman. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Todd Williams are the executive producers. Joining Hardy behind the scenes are director of photography Maxime Alexandre (The VoicesAnnabelle: Creation), production designer Jennifer Spence (Annabelle: Creation, Lights Out , the Insidious films), editors Michel Aller (Lights OutParanormal Activity: Ghost Dimension) and Ken Blackwell (OuijaFriday the 13th), and costume designer Sharon Gilham (TV's Black Mirror). The music is by Abel Korzeniowski (Nocturnal Animals). 

New Line Cinema presents an Atomic Monster / Safran Company production, The Nun. Opening in theaters beginning September 7, 2018, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. This film has been rated R for terror, violence, and disturbing/bloody images. thenunmovie.com
