ScreenX allows moviegoers to go beyond the frame of the movie screen by utilizing a proprietary system that expands images of feature films and pre-show advertising to create an immersive, panoramic, 270-degree format that projects onto three theatre walls. To date, ScreenX has been installed in 121 screens around the world, including 84 screens at 53 locations in South Korea; 27 screens in China; 3 in the United States; 2 in Turkey and Vietnam and 1 in Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia.
