Going to movie theatres in Montreal is about to get a whole bigger. And wider.

ScreenX, the world’s first multi-projection theatre screen that allows for 270-degree panoramic movie projection, is opening its first location in Quebec.

What’s more, the inaugural viewing on the immersive screen will be Marvel’s highly anticipated Spider-Man: No Way Home on opening day.

ScreenX is a product of Cineplex that uses a proprietary system to expand specially selected sequences of the film onto the left and right side walls of the auditorium, surrounding the audience with imagery as though they were inside the movie. “ScreenX provides a virtual reality-like setting with cinema-quality resolution, creating a truly immersive experience for moviegoers,” says a Cineplex press released shared with Daily Hive.

Quebec’s first ScreenX auditorium is opening on Friday, December 17 at the Cineplex Odeon Cinema in Brossard. This will become the tenth ScreenX location in Canada.
