A new type of technology in South Korea called ScreenX uses the theater walls as supplemental screens to give people a more immersive experience.

ScreenX is a new type of cinema technology developed by theater chain CJ CGV in South Korea. It uses the theater walls as supplemental screens to give people a panoramic 270-degree view.

The ScreenX technology makes the movie seem to jump off the screen to deliver a more immersive viewing experience for cinemagoers, through the use of a pantented multi-production method. It aims to provide a movie watching experience viewers won't be able to get at home.

ScreenX uses three huge screens, one in the middle and one on each side, making people feel more involved in the movie. Its creators want it to go beyond the 3D and 4D cinema experience.
