What is IMAX?
The IMAX theatre in VivoCity is the first of its kind in Vietnam. The huge screen, surround sound and 3D features absorb viewers and put them at the center of the action.
IMAX is a motion picture film format developed in Canada for extra-wide screens. Together with 48FS (48 frames per second), IMAX creates a brilliant, sharp viewing experience during fast-paced action scenes.
Even more immersing for viewers of the 21st century is the state-of-the-art 4DX technology. CGV implemented 4DX at the theatres in Hung Vuong Plaza and SC VivoCity, providing a multisensory experience.
What is 4DX?
4DX consists of two main components: Motion seats and atmospherics.
The motion seats of CGV Hung Vuong plaza are capable of three base movements: Roll, pitch and heave, which can be combined to create a vast array of movement possibilities.
Additionally to the moving seats, there are up to 5 atmospheric effects: rain, wind, lightning, scents and… bubbles.
With these state-of-the-art technologies, CGV Cinemas Vietnam provides a nice diversity of experiences for a romantic, relaxing or action-laden night out with friends, families or couples.
Please keep in mind that children under one meter tall or under four years old cannot use the 4DX motion seats.
