It’s always fun to introduce people to new formats, when it comes to the theater going experience. I for one, love going to the Movies. To be completely honest, there’s nothing like it. At home, I tend to be… shockingly… on the computer, or the phone and not giving the movie or TV series my full attention.
The theater however is different.
I was so lucky to be able to head down to the CGV Cinemas to check out Birds of Prey in ScreenX. Or wait, is it Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey now? Either way, you have to check it out.
So, for those of you who haven’t seen my previous ScreenX reviews, let me tell you what the website says about ScreenX.
From the website:
ScreenX is the first in the world to combine multi-projection technology with theater screen and project images on the outside wall of the front screen to create a new immersion experience for the audience.
The ScreenX team has developed an integrated system, ScreenX Solution, that combines hardware and software, based on CGV’s expertise in theater systems, operation and installation know-how, and user experience analysis capabilities. ScreenX Solution is a technology that synchronizes all the functions from screening DB analysis to image correction, playback and management, and synchronizes them with existing digital cinema system.
So, I was very lucky, no pun intended to be joined on my ScreenX adventure with my good friends Andy, Erin and their daughter Mara (who is adorable, BTW!)
Erin, joined me on my last adventure, but this was Andy and Mara’s first time seeing ScreenX and I think just judging by Mara’s gasp and saying, “Mom, look at that!” I think she liked it.
One of the coolest things about seeing Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey was that the utilization of the side screens were done deliberately and were done to not only extend the action on screen but to enhance the film. Birds of Prey used a variety of different techniques, done of them was spray painted words and different things done to enhance the film.
The side panels used the spray paint to enhance the effect and the film itself. It was really cool to see to be honest and gave us all the feeling of being a part of Harley Quinn’s warped mind.
This film used the side projections more than I’ve seen before and I loved that! There were so many action scenes in Birds of Prey that seeing it in ScreenX was in a word awesome. It was super effective and I loved it.
I really enjoyed the film as a whole, but I know that seeing it in this format really did help my enjoyment of the movie as a whole. Anytime you can see something where the way you see it, makes that film better… I can’t think of a better endorsement.

Starting this website has been a labor of love. I love sharing my fandom experiences but more than that I love hearing everyone else’s stories. I love hearing about conventions, movie locations, meet celebrities good and bad, I love it all.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my exploits, the adventures of everyone who submits an article, and all the members of the Fanboy Family!
Without everyone who writes and reads MTF there wouldn’t be a site. This is truly for the fans, by the fans!
