Movie theatre experiences just keep on getting more and more high-tech — making each trip to the movies even cooler than the last. And it looks like Cineplex isn't slowing down anytime soon.

As of December 17, there's going to be a whole new way to watch a film at Cineplex Odeon Cinemas Brossard and VIP. The movie theatre is getting Quebec's first-ever immersive ScreenX panoramic auditorium.

Using multi-projection theatre technology, ScreenX lets viewers experience movies through a 270-degree panoramic view. Cineplex explains this wraparound movie screen as "a virtual reality-like setting with cinema quality resolution," that creates "a truly immersive experience for moviegoers."

On the ScreenX opening day in Brossard, viewers will have the chance to see Spider-Man: No Way Home in an all-new way. Tickets are already available on Cineplex's website and app.

In a press release, Daniel Séguin, senior vice president of national operations at Cineplex, described ScreenX as "one of the latest state-of-the-art technologies we've introduced to provide a memorable escape for movie lovers that can't be replicated at home."

So nope, it sounds like casting a Netflix movie to your living room TV simply cannot compare.

In case you're ever taking a trip across Canada, you can also visit these other ScreenX locations in the country:

  • Scotiabank Theatre Vancouver
  • Cineplex Odeon Sunridge Spectrum, in Calgary
  • Cineplex Odeon South Edmonton
  • Scotiabank Theatre Winnipeg
  • Cineplex Cinemas Queensway and VIP, in Toronto
  • Scotiabank Theatre Toronto
  • Cineplex Cinemas Yorkdale, in Toronto
  • Cineplex Cinemas Ottawa
  • Scotiabank Theatre Halifax

In Quebec, a vaccine passport is required to access many businesses and activities deemed non-essential, including restaurants and bars.
