Mr. Pan, General Manager of Luxin-Rio, said: “It is a milestone that the MediaMation MX4D Motion EFX Theatre is installed in Beijing. This means the new MediaMation Motion EFX Theatre cutting-edge technology is accepted in the Chinese market."

Hong Kong silver screen superstar Eric Tsang, MediaMation VP/CTO Dan Jamele, Disney Studio representatives and theatre chain executives from across the great continent of China joined throngs of avid Chinese movie-goers to witness the highly publicized premiere of the first 96-seat MediaMation MX4D Motion EFX Theatre in the capital city of Beijing.

The gala event took place May 25, 2015, at the legendary, 80-year old Xidan Capital Cinemas theatre, located in the bustling shopping district of Beijing. It is reported to be the number one-attended theatre in China. The watershed MX4D Beijing install – the first for major Chinese cinema chain Capital Cinemas – was made possible via the partnership of Torrance, CA, USA-based 4D cinema maker MediaMation, Inc. and Chinese 3D equipment supplier Luxin-Rio. It follows the recent installation by MediaMation and Luxin-Rio of an MX4D 100 + seat theatre in the city of Nanning for Wanda Cinemas, and the announcement of an upcoming installation in Nanchang for Jinyi Cinemas.

The main event of the Beijing festivities was the MX4D debut of Disney’s live-action comic book adventure, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” (known as “Creating Eras” in Chinese.) Movie fans shrieked with excitement when MX4D pitch, heave and roll motion, air and water blasts, scents, leg ticklers, seat poppers and other special effects punctuated the frenetic on-screen action of “Iron Man,” “The Hulk,” and various Marvel superheroes. Sharing their infectious excitement with the television cameras, newly-minted fans of the MediaMation MX4D technology exclaimed their enthusiasm for seeing other MX4D® releases such as “Tomorrowland,” “San Andreas (“DoomsDay Collapse”) and “Jurassic World” in this immersive new cinematic format.

Observed MMI VP/CTO Dan Jamele: “It was great to personally attend the exciting debut of Capital Cinema’s first MX4D theatre – in Beijing, no less! MediaMation MX4D technology is particularly compatible to Chinese building codes and aesthetic sensibilities, so we did not have to do any renovation of the theatre building. We are thrilled with the positive media and word-of-mouth generated by the immersive movie-going experience. Combined with ease of installation and lower maintenance costs of our systems, we are encouraged these factors will continue to fuel our MX4D expansion in the vast Chinese cinema market.”

Mr. Pan, General Manager of Luxin-Rio, said: “It is a milestone that the MediaMation MX4D Motion EFX Theatre is installed in Beijing. This means the new MediaMation Motion EFX Theatre cutting-edge technology is accepted in the Chinese market. In the future, we see this high-end 4D theatre brand capturing the largest market share in China."

MX4D is MediaMation’s uniquely branded “4D” pneumatically driven motion EFX system. In general, 4D refers to an emerging “immersive” cinema technology which allows movie-goers to experience big Hollywood “blockbusters,” as well as locally produced major films, in a new way via the addition of moving seats, air/water blasts, leg/neck ticklers, fog, seat/back pokers, seat rumblers and other special effects that emanate from specially designed theatre seats, or from inside the theatre itself. These multiple special effects are programmed to both sync with and enhance the action on the screen and sounds in the theatre for a more exciting and realistic movie-going experience.
