The Three-Sided Movie Screen

Your movie theater experience may be drastically changing in the next year or two. Picture this: a 3-sided movie screen.

Tech industry rumors say that a South Korean company, named ScreenX, is planning to bring a 270-degree viewing experience to the United States.

A number of blockbuster movies are being digitally altered for the new surround experience. I have no idea when the first 3-sided movie theater will appear and where.

All I can say is, “Imagine being immersed in your favorite movie. That’s pretty awesome. It’s like being on stage. Are you ready for your closeup?”

  1. This reminds me of Cinerama, which came out in the 1950’s. I’m not sure how many degrees of width it has but it was wider than CinemaScope and IMAX. It used three projectors and unique screen made of slats. It’s signature film was a roller coaster ride which was amazing. I also remember 360 degree movies at the 1964 World’s Fair. They were mostly travelogues.
