Mary Pickford Theatre to Unveil New ScreenX Auditorium in Cathedral City on May 24, 2024

The iconic state-of-the-art Mary Pickford Theatre located in Downtown Cathedral City plans to open its new immersive viewing experience “ScreenX” to the public on May 24, 2024, with the release of the new FURIOSA movie.

Back in April, at CinemaCon CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s leading producer of premium film formats and cinema technologies, and D’Place Entertainment, an operator of movie theaters and entertainment centers across Southern California, announced plans to install the ScreenX format at the Mary Pickford location.

ScreenX reimagines the way movies are experienced. The revolutionary format seamlessly extends the screens onto the surrounding walls of the auditorium, delivering a 270-degree panoramic viewing adventure. Through its unique presentation of key scenes and exclusive elements, ScreenX immerses audiences in an unparalleled visual environment. The new ScreenX auditorium will boast a 50-foot-wide screen and luxury recliner seats, providing a premium theatrical experience for viewers.

Besides Warner Brothers’ Furiosa, other upcoming ScreenX films include Illumination’s Despicable Me 4, Universal Pictures’ Twisters, and Marvel Studios’ Deadpool & Wolverine.

Don Savant, President & CEO, CJ 4DPLEX America said, “We’re excited to join forces with D’Place Entertainment and launch their very first ScreenX auditorium. Together, we’re reshaping the future of moviegoing, and we can’t wait for audiences to experience the magic of ScreenX at the Mary Pickford Theatre.”

“At D’Place, we are dedicated to entertaining guests each time they visit, and the addition of the 270- degree panoramic ScreenX auditorium epitomizes our unwavering commitment to our audience.” We are thrilled to embark on this journey with ScreenX and look forward to creating unforgettable moments for our community at the Mary Pickford Theatre,” said Damon Rubio, president of D’Place Entertainment.
