Movie Town Cinema Site Visit
MCL Cinemas has opened another new flagship cinema, Movie Town, in New Town Plaza, Shatin today (June 8) and we were invited to join a press tour yesterday.
Movie Town offers 7 houses which supports 4K playback, and features MX4D and Hong Kong's first RealD Cinema and Samsung Onyx Cinema LED screen. Two FX Houses feature 4K laser projectors, Dolby Atmos soundsystem and Buttkicker seat virbration control system. MX4D House features MX4D theatre experience with Bowers & Wilkins professional speakers.
Movie Town House 2 is Hong Kong's first RealD Cinema. With RealD Ultimate screen, it brings brighter and more precise 2D and 3D images for movie-goers. Dolby Atmos soundsystem and Buttkicker seat virbration control system also installed in this house.
Movie Town House 5 has Hong Kong's first Samsung Onyx Cinema LED screen installed. The 455" screen provides 4K UHD resolution playback and supports HDR image processing, which results in 10 times brighter and crystal clear images than standard cinemas. With its LED diodes on screen, it provides true black colour presentation and the images will not be affected by ambient lights in the theatre. Samsung has only recently unveiled Onyx Cinema LED screen at CinemaCon 2018, and Movie Town is the 7th cinema in the world to have Onyx screen installed.
