TGV Cinemas last week introduced its newest 3D-X theater (Digital 3D projection system) at the Setiawalk, Puchong. Members of the media and invited guests were treated to a premiere of Ang Lee’s first 3D film, Life of Pi, at the spanking 50,923 sq ft TGV facility. However, due to final checks and calibrations the media and guests weren't able to view the movie in 3D, instead in two regular theaters at the brand new TGV outlet.
The 3D-X theater signified the cinema's progressive transition from 35 mm film projection to digital cinema projection which is expected to be fully completed by January 2013. Apart from delivering unmatched brightness, sharpness and superior 3D images, with 3D-X, TGV Cinemas is now capable of displaying high-definition content – 2K, 4K and 3D feature films, documentaries and alternative contents.
TGV SetiaWalk brings a whole new dimension to the cinema experience as it includes the best of comfort and digital cinema experience. The new cinema is home to a Beanieplex, which has comfortable cushy beanbag seats that come in pairs, and eight other cinema halls all equipped with the latest digital projection system. Movie seating at TGV SetiaWalk is one of the features not to be missed. The stadium-like seating provides cinema-goers an exceptional vantage point inside the cinema halls directed to the screen. This unique positioning of plush seats is paired with wider leg room that guarantees comfort throughout the duration of a movie. In addition, TGV Setiawalk and other TGV outlets are more than just a place for movie engagement, the new SetiaWalk and major TGVs in the Klang Valley offer adequate venues for Corporate and private events or functions. The one at Setiawalk is equipped with two function rooms and a huge enough foyer.
"The innovation found in today’s digital cinema technology to greatly improve the movie-going experience makes the film-to-digital conversion a top priority for TGV Cinemas. With the 3D-X roll-out, TGV Cinemas can now offer the best in digital cinematic experience in 3D," explained Kenny Wong, CEO of TGV Cinemas.
The new cinema at SetiaWalk is the 20th TGV outlet and is located in the Puchong vicinity. The opening of a new cinema is timely as it addresses the growing need of a cinema exhibitor in the developing neighborhood which extends to Subang and Shah Alam.
