When the latest blockbuster flick has a superhero flying into space to blast away enemy aliens, sometimes a flat 90-degree screen doesn’t do it justice. That’s when Reel Cinema’s ScreenX comes in.

The UAE’s first multi-projection screening system at The Dubai Mall offers 270-degrees of cinematic action, and there are quite a few must-see movies to watch on it.

First off we have the highly-anticipated Shazam!, DC’s latest hit flick that sees a 14-year-old kid basically gain the powers of Superman (along with a bit of lightning). It’s equal parts hilarious and action-packed, and ScreenX promises a thrilling experience as Shazam punches his nemesis from one end of the screen to the other.

Want to watch it for free? Reel Cinemas is offering a lucky winner free tickets. To be in with a chance of winning, visit Reel Cinemas’ Facebook page and answer the question on the post, Get it right? You stand the chance to watch a special screening at ScreenX on Thursday April 4.

If you missed Shazam!, not to worry, as ScreenX will have plenty more flicks for the popcorn munchers out there. If you ever wondered if a talking Pikchu would ever make a good detective, you’re in luck.

The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, Detective Pikachu, is coming to the theatre on May 9. Voiced by Ryan Reynolds (who else?), the movie follows a caffeine-addicted Pikachu as he teams up with his partner-in-justice’s son to solve a mystery that goes much deeper.

After that, we’re getting to see city-sized monsters duke it out in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. From the looks of the trailer, it looks like there will be destruction at every corner, and who doesn’t want to see a huge lizard take on a three-headed dragon? Prepare for its release on May 30.

Tickets for the experience are priced from AED63. For timings and more info about what’s coming up, visit www.reelcinemas.ae. Get your calendars out and get planning.

Forget 90-degree viewing, it’s time for triple the cinematic action.
