CJ 4DPLEX And Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas To Open First ScreenX Auditorium In San Mateo, CA

ScreenX will open in Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo inside the Hillsdale Mall complex with Sony Pictures Entertainment's Jumanji: The Next Level on December 13

 

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CJ 4DPLEX (www.cj4dx.com), the world's leading cinema technology company, in partnership with Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, a leading world-class cinema exhibitor known for its enhanced movie-going concepts, today announced the extension of their long-standing partnership to open the first ScreenX auditorium between the two companies at Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo on December 13. The premium cinema format will expand the exciting action sequences of Sony Pictures Entertainment's "Jumanji: The Next Level," among other future films, onto its 270-degree panoramic screens.

Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo is located in 8 Hillsdale Mall, San Mateo, CA 94403. The luxury theater complex is an expansive 50,042-square-foot space featuring 10 auditoriums and a total of 837 seats. Inside its stunning theater space, the innovative and exciting ScreenX format will be housed in auditorium 1 with 101 seats.

ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection theatre technology that allows a 270-degree panoramic movie watching experience. ScreenX allows the audience to go beyond the frame of the traditional movie screen, utilizing a proprietary system to expand the center screen image to the side walls, surrounding audiences with an extra wide viewing experience through specially selected sequences of the film, providing the sense of being inside the movie.

"We are proud to be building on our long-standing relationship with Cinépolis to be adding a ScreenX theatre to our growing footprint," said JongRyul Kim, CEO of CJ 4DPLEX. "The premium ScreenX format will make a great addition to the luxurious Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo complex and we cannot wait for audiences to experience the exciting world of 'Jumanji: The Next Level' expanded on the visually immersive screens of ScreenX."       

"We proudly welcome ScreenX into Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo and anticipate that the premium cinema technology will be a popular choice amongst our audiences," said Luis Olloqui, Chief Executive Officer of Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas. "CJ 4DPLEX has brought impressive innovations to the cinema experience, including our theaters that include 4DX screens. We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership to add ScreenX as a premium offering at our latest luxury theater opening."

"Jumanji: The Next Level" in ScreenX will offer an extended viewing experience of the film, expanding major action sequences and exotic locales, from the desert to the jungle and the arctic, onto the left and right side walls of the auditorium. As mandrills and stampeding ostriches careen across the side screens surrounding the auditorium, audiences will be taken deeper into the world of "Jumanji: The Next Level" for a visually enhanced cinematic experience. In ScreenX, the film will be releasing on 240 screens worldwide, including 33 screens in the U.S. with Regal Cinemas, B&B Theatres, CGV Cinemas and now Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas San Mateo.

This marks the first ScreenX partnership between the two companies following successful openings of the multi-sensory cinema format 4DX - a sister technology of ScreenX - across Latin America and the U.S. Altogether, the new partnership will extend the current footprint of CJ 4DPLEX and Cinépolis to a total of 69 locations.
