“B&B Theatres are great partners who have committed their largest PLF auditorium with luxury recliners to create the most immersive and differentiated experience available today in cinema,” said Don Savant, President and CEO, CJ4DPLEX America. “We can’t wait for audiences in new cities to see what ScreenX brings when coupled with an amazing slate of upcoming ScreenX films.”
In 2018, CJ 4DPLEX and B&B Theatres initially partnered to introduce the largest ScreenX auditorium in the world in their PLF Grand Screen auditorium at their B&B Liberty Cinema 12 in Liberty, Missouri. That screen is over four stories tall and seven stories wide, and offers moviegoers one of the most premium, immersive viewing experiences in history. Currently B&B Theatres has ScreenX locations in Liberty, Missouri, Overland Park, Kansas and Ridgeland, Mississippi.
“We’re excited to extend our partnership with CJ 4DPLEX and continue the successful introduction of ScreenX to our audiences,” said Brock Bagby, Executive Vice President of B&B Theatres. “We are continuing to innovate the way people experience movies and look forward to expanding our work with CJ4DPLEX for years to come.”

By expanding the image beyond the frame and onto the walls of the theatre, ScreenX places the audience directly at the center of the story, creating a visually immersive viewing experience unlike any other. To date, there are now over 372 ScreenX auditoriums around the world in 38 countries.
