A Long-Awaited Return
Los Angeles, California (April 30, 2021) – The Hollywood TCL Chinese Theatre has finally reopened their IMAX Theatre to the public after closing their doors approximately one year ago! Since it opened in 1927, a shutdown of this magnitude and time is unprecedented in Hollywood and in the TCL Chinese Theatre’s history. Now the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX and the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres are finally open with all Covid-19 sanitary regulations in place and a slate of exciting new films are also opening in the MediaMotion Inc. MX4D theatre located in the Chinese 6 complex.
Amazing blockbuster films such as “Mortal Kombat” and “Godzilla vs Kong” have already been showing in these theatres, returning patrons to a more traditional movie-going experience.
These thrilling and action-packed films are being shown in an all immersive MX4D Motion EFX format, as well as 2D and IMAX format.
