I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I highly suggest checking out the exciting new film from Warner Bros. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part in 4DX. Up until a few weeks ago I had no idea 4DX was even a thing. It is an immersive multi-sensory movie experience known as 4DX. Each 4DX auditorium incorporates motion-based seating that is synchronized with more than 20 different effects which allow the audience to connect with movies through motion, vibration, water, wind, snow, lightning, scents, and other special effects that enhance the visuals on-screen. It’s like spending over an hour on your favorite amusement park ride without any of the lines! I got to experience 4DX this past weekend with my family and it is definitely a mind-blowing experience the whole family can enjoy together!
CJ 4DPLEX is a leading, next-generation cinema technology company, headquartered in Seoul with international offices in Los Angeles and Beijing. The company has created immersive film technologies for theaters worldwide that include ‘4DX’, ‘ScreenX’ and ‘4DX with ScreenX’ for consumers to experience films in ways that were never before possible.
Check out this promo clip to give you a brief glimpse at 4DX. Before our movie begun we actually watched this clip in the theaters and it gave us a brief preview of what all the seats could do and immediately put smiles on all our faces! At the very end of the clip you can see some of the motion of the seats…in person it is even better!
The seats are comfy and there is a foot rest you will place your feet on. You will also wear 3D glasses. I expected the seats to move but they actually move way more than I anticipated! Make sure to hold on to your snacks as I am certain popcorn went flying!
Here is the warning listed at the theater for 4DX. This is all standard but take note of the age and height requirement. You must be at least 3 and a half feet tall and 4 years old. No lap sitting! The seats really do get a lot of motion and as always…safety first!
If the theaters listed below are currently not near you, don’t worry as 4DX is rapidly expanding its footprint with Regal this year and will soon have over 85 locations in the U.S!

More than 570 Hollywood and local titles have been screened in 4DX. To date, more than 70,000 4DX seats operate in 590 auditoriums, spanning 61 countries. We LOVED watching The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part in 4DX! I had no idea that going to the movie theater could be so exciting! My girls are already asking when we can go back. We told them to keep their grades up and we could use trips to see movies in 4DX as experience rewards for good grades and good behavior in school. 4DX is an amazing movie going experience and one that has to be experienced to truly appreciate its awesomeness. As a side note The Lego Movie 2 is indeed awesome too and by far the best way to view it is in 4DX!
