CJ 4DPLEX, in partnership with Cineplex, announced
today the start of a pilot that will see the opening of Canada’s first ScreenX auditorium tomorrow
– Thursday, December 20, in Toronto, Ontario. The immersive new experience will open at
Cineplex Cinemas Queensway and VIP and will debut with Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated film,
ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection theatre technology that enables a 270-degree,
panoramic movie-watching experience. Using a proprietary system to expand the centre screen
image to the side walls, ScreenX surrounds audiences with imagery beyond the frame of the
traditional movie screen and provides them with a sense of being inside the movie. The opening
at Cineplex Cinemas Queensway and VIP will bring ScreenX’s total global footprint to 187
locations in 16 countries.
“This new ScreenX auditorium in Toronto and our ongoing partnership with Cineplex is another
big step for ScreenX,” said Brandon Choi, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX America. “We are excited to use
this new location as a starting point to introduce our 270-degree cinema environment to the
wider Canadian marketplace.”
“At Cineplex, we are always looking for the newest and most innovative experiences to
introduce to our guests across the country,” said Dan McGrath, Chief Operating Officer,
Cineplex. “ScreenX is a perfect example of this and we are so excited to continue our
partnership with CJ 4DPLEX and launch yet another first for Canadian movie-goers.”
The announcement today further expands the relationship between the two Companies. CJ
4DPLEX and Cineplex partnered in 2016 to open Canada’s first 4DX auditorium at Cineplex
Cinemas Yonge-Dundas and VIP. Following a successful pilot, the Companies announced an
expanded agreement in September 2018 that will bring the 4DX experience to as many as 13
additional Cineplex locations across the country over the coming years.
“Aquaman” is the fourth film in a multi-picture agreement between Warner Bros. Pictures and
CJ 4DPLEX and the eighth Hollywood blockbuster released in ScreenX this year alone.
“Aquaman” follows the globally successful ScreenX blockbuster engagements of “The Meg”,
“The Nun” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”. The ScreenX slate continues in
2019 with the first solo feature of fan-favourite “Shazam!” in April 2019.
Showtimes and tickets for “Aquaman” are available now at the theatre box office, Cineplex
Mobile App and at Cineplex.com.
