Indiana Jones and the Dial Of Destiny ScreenX Review: Is It Worth Checking Out The New Multi-Projection Theater?

Can I tell you how excited I am that we’re all able to go back to theaters and see a film in a group setting. There’s nothing like it.

Certain films you have to see with a passionate group, horror movies wouldn’t be the same without being in a theater with a group of people being scared at the same time, jumping, screaming, etc…

One movie that you have to see in a passionate group setting is Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. All of the Indiana Jones films… Currently there are four… yes, four… (there is one film that after 45 minutes into the runtime does not exist which is around the time one of the characters swings from vines with monkeys but that’s a story for another time). One film, that you really need to see in theaters with a group is Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny.

I know there have been so many mixed reports but I have to tell you, I thought it was really well done and a fitting end of the Indiana Jones series. Now, was it hard for me to see Indiana Jones at 83 years old… Yeah, it was but you know, I thought that James Mangold did a great job, the action was fierce and it had some of that old school magic.

I know some people didn’t love the ending, but I did. I thought that callbacks were great and it was a wonderful ride.

Now, I was lucky enough to see Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in ScreenX. I love this format so much. During the action sequences the film expands to a 270 degree view and expands the screen so you really feel like you’re in the middle of the action.

From the ScreenX 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.

I’ve seen films in a wide variety of formats and styles, and I think from a pure viewing perspective ScreenX is my favorite, it brings you into the film without it being forced which is a really rare thing these days.

The CGV cinemas in Los Angeles is a great place to check out a variety of films in the ScreenX format, so I highly suggest you do so! I was lucky to hang out with my friend Angie for this screening, I have to tell you we had a blast.
