"UltraAVX has been a runaway hit with our guests," said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment.

The combination of big picture and big sound immerses you in the onscreen action. With UltraAVX you don't just watch the movie anymore, you feel it!"
