Movies are a staple of date nights for Brent and Naomi, we each have a love for action, comedy, thrillers and a little horror. So while in LA we had no choice other than to see a 4DX movie at Regal theatres LA Live. Some information that may be important
Who is 4DX?
Korean company CJ 4DPLEX introduced 4D technology in 2009.
What is 4DX? (Straight from cj4dx.com)
Advancing the movie theater experience from watching the movie to almost living it, 4DX is the ultimate in state of the art technology delivering a fully immersive cinematic experience. Inside every dedicated 4DX auditorium, motion chairs and environmental effects such as wind, bubbles, and scent work in perfect synchronicity with the action on screen.
With only the best technologies, 4DX motion chairs are equipped with three base movements of heave (move up and down), roll (move left and right) and pitch (tilt backward and forward) which can create an endless expanse of possible combinations to mimic such actions as flying and driving. The skilled team of 4DX editors, “i-Studio”, are experts in maximizing the feeling of immersion within every movie without overstepping comfort bounds.
Movies are now no longer bound by their visual and aural limits. 4DX is the next step in the movie-going evolution taking audiences on a journey into the full feature film. Free yourself from the confines of the flat screen and live the experience with 4DX.
What is it like?
We saw two movies in 4DX while in LA. I do not like to give any spoiler or spoiler free reviews but just like to give my opinion on the tech and special effects used.
4d effects used were motion controlled seats, scent (grass and nature smells), wind, rain, lightning and all were synced very well to the on screen action and didn’t seem gimmicky. The 4dx experience for Blair Witch was so good that it turned this movie into something I wont soon forget.
4d effects used motion controlled seats, vibration of seats, and smoke. There was not as many effects in the movie compared to Blair Witch but yet still made for a good overall experience that enhancing an already fun movie!
