CJ CGV to open 100 ScreenX the­aters

The Korea Times - - BUSINESS -

CJ CGV has signed a deal with Cineworld, the world’s sec­ond-largest cin­ema chain, to open 100 more ScreenX lo­ca­tions across the world, the largest South Korean cin­ema chain said Thurs­day.

The deal was signed at the CineEurope 2018 event in Barcelona, Spain, on Wed­nes­day.

De­vel­oped with Korean tech­nol­ogy for the first time in the world in 2012, the im­mer­sive screen­ing sys­tem de­liv­ers a 270-de­gree ex­pe­ri­ence by us­ing two side screens in ad­di­tion to the cin­ema’s ex­ist­ing main screen.

Cur­rently, there are 142 ScreenX the­aters world­wide.

The deal will in­stall 100 more such the­aters all over the United States, Bri­tain, Is­rael and seven Euro­pean coun­tries, ac­cord­ing to the CJ CGV.

London-based Cineworld Group took over the U.S. Re­gal En­ter­tain­ment Group last year to be­come the world’s sec­ond-largest cin­ema chain. It cur­rently has 9,538 screens across 793 sites in 10 coun­tries.
