Trips to the movies are getting bigger and bigger in Sydney with a potential reopening of the IMAX Cinema and another massive viewing experience on the cards this year, courtesy of Event Cinemas. It’s called ScreenX and it’s set to make your movie-going experience bigger and better than ever. Featuring screens spanning three walls and displaying pictures up to 67.7 meters wide, it promises an immersive, 270-degree experience. Australia’s first ScreenX is launching in the Gold Coast but it’s expanding nationally later this year, including in Sydney.
The world’s first multi-projection cinema experience uses three screens during a movie surrounding cinemagoers in their seats and filling the audience’s peripheral vision with 270-degree panoramic projections. ScreenX projects footage onto the left and right walls along with the main screen of the theater. Other features include Dolby surround sound and comfy recliner seating. This creative new form of storytelling is now making its way to Australia with the first-ever ScreenX launching in Event Cinemas Robina.
And the movies set to screen are just as big and worthy of the ScreenX treatment. The line-up includes upcoming blockbusters like The Creator, Dune II, The Marvels and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom along with past large-scale releases like Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.
“At Event Cinemas, we are dedicated to bringing the best range of cinema experiences to Australian audiences. ScreenX is popular globally and we can’t wait for our local audiences to experience it. Our next stop will be Sydney,” Luke Mackey, Director of Entertainment Australia for EVT said.
