ScreenX opened last night with an exclusive screening of Bohemian Rhapsody.

Watch the video above for a glimpse at the new technology.

ScreenX brings multi-projection cinema technology to Castleford, expanding the traditional cinema screen to the auditorium’s side walls to provide a fully-immersive, 270-degree viewing experience.

The cinema, at Xscape Yorkshire, was only the fourth in the UK to premiere the technology.

Chris Musgrave, general manager of Cineworld Castleford, said: “It really is something different to your usual cinema viewing.

“As it’s a new technology we are expecting more and more films to be released in this format. It gives filmmakers a real opportunity to add depth to the experience.”

Upcoming films expected to utilise the new technology include November’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Aquaman, which is due to be released in December.
