Admissions for 4DX screenings broke the record for the technology in August 2019.

Well, just an update on this, as it seems more and more are us are giving 4DX a go.

If you’re not familiar with it, this is increasingly popular option at certain cinema sites where you sit in a moving chair and have water, wind, smells and whatnot lugged at you in tandem with the film on screen. Just to give a rough rule of them, it’s the kind of option that works well for a film such as The Meg, less well for something like Roma.

According to the new press proclamation from 4DX, more of us than ever are giving it a whirl.

In August, it reported record figures of 2.7 million attendees, generating $32m at the box office worldwide. The highlights were Fast & Furious: Hobbs & ShawThe Lion King and Aladdin. In China and Japan, admissions were fuelled too by The Bravest and One Piece: Stampede.

The August numbers defeat the previous record, set in July where screenings of Spider-Man: Far From Home and The Lion King sold well. Although it was the success of Aladdin in Korea in particular that had helped July numbers soar.
