Theaters Are Ultimate Way To Watch Movies

I've been a fan of flicks for as long as I can remember. I still really enjoy going to an actual theater to watch films on a big screen. Streaming services are nice and convenient but they aren't the same experience as attending the show in-house. Technology has taken movie going to the next level.

The Marcus Ridge Cinema in New Berlin (just outside of Milwaukee) is proud to welcome ScreenX. It's the latest and greatest technology when it comes to experiencing movies in the theater. You'll view the film on a 270-degree panoramic screen which is 45 feet tall. The seating will be 108 recliner chairs.

According to, 

At CJ 4DPLEX, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of cinema and providing moviegoers with unforgettable experiences not available at home.

ScreenX takes audiences beyond the frame of a traditional movie screen by expanding the action to specially formatted side walls that open up during key moments in the story.
