BUY YOUR TICKETS ONLINE (I USED FANDANGO) AND CHOOSE YOUR SEATS! THEN, PICK UP THE TICKETS WITH THIS MACHINE!! 







THE SEATS ARE SO COOL! THEY LOOK HIGH TECH AND PRETTY MUCH ALL AROUND AWESOME!
IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY WATER POURING DOWN ON YOU, JUST SIMPLY PRESS THE "WATER OFF" BUTTON!



Last Saturday, I was really debating on whether or not I should have gone to the last day of the KTOWN x OC BLOCK PARTY at the Angels Stadium. I was basically 80% going to go until my friend Nancy informed me that when she got there, there is a $10 parking fee. $10 y'all ... that aain't cheap at all.  Immediately after hearing that information from her, I made up my mind not to go to the KTOWN NIGHT MARKET because come on...why would I wanna pay $10 in addition to the entrance fee of $3 just to also pay more money to eat food.

Instead, I made a better decision.

Spontaneously, after deciding not to go to Ktown Night Market anymore, I called up Kev and asked him if he wanted to become part of a movie adventure. That's right! A few months ago, my friend Tommy told me that the Korean Company (seriously, why is Korea so on top of it's tech game?!) CJ 4DPlex, which brought the world's very first 4D theatre (to Korea of course) in 2009, teamed up with Regal L.A. Live theatre to bring one of the most awesome cinematic screenings ever to LOS ANGELES which also happens to be the very first 4D theater in the entire United States! Isn't that amazing that California gets to have all the good stuff? I feel so lucky to live in California!

When I heard about CJ 4DPlex coming to L.A. (a few months ago actually in 2014) from my friend Tommy, I was absolutely ecstatic and superrrr excited! The reason why is because I actually have already experienced the CJ 4DPlex theater in 영산 (Yongsan, Seoul) in 2012 and it was absolutely a-maaay-zingggggg! I watched Iron Man 2 and all the action packed scenes from the movie was also felt through the punching and the butt pinching and air whooshing action coming from my chair!

The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES was playing so Kev and I decided to get tickets for that! Once inside the Regal Theater at L.A. live, we became impressed by the grand fanciness of the entire place. I guess because it is in Los Angeles where many celebrities are seen at after all... What impressed me more than the building was the 4D theatre's awesome awesome chairs. The color scheme reminds me of Tron because it's a bit grey, silver, and blue, a great color combo for cool technology-like anything!

There is a water on/ water off button as well so if you're not fond of getting any water on yourself, USE THAT BUTTON TO TURN IT OFF!

I definitely felt like I was in the movie.
TMNT was a great choice because it's full of action-packed scenes. When it rained, there were sprinkles of water droplets falling on us. When someone used a camera with flash in the movie, the entire theatre had a flashing light as well. When there was smoke, even smoke came out on the sides of the room. For all the punching and fighting in the movie, there was air from the back of the seat in front of you that would whoosh out. The back part of the seat that you sit in also has some "massage" like things that "punch" your back and there's even air whooshing from under your seat to whoosh at your legs. The chair itself does move up and down and side to side to go along with the film. Overall, the movements and actions performed by the chair and room synced well with the movie. I think the room even felt colder when their was some snow in the movie!

If you are planning on coming here to cuddle with your significant other, I must warn you that you cannot lift up the arm rests. But, if you wanna come here with a date, then it is a very unique date idea! I totally recommend it because it's a great way to see a regular popular movie with 4D action that isn't offered anywhere else in the United States! 

EVERYONE SHOULD COME HERE! IT'S SO COOL!  (AND CALMED DOWN MY KOREAN "WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS".)

***4D includes 3D!

THIS THEATRE VS. THE KOREAN THEATRE IN YONGSAN

  1. The L.A. movie screen is smaller
  2. L.A. is much easier to buy tickets because they aren't sold out as fast
  3. The Korean theatre has individual chairs. Some even have a transparent shield (like astronaut clear helmet?!) that is for your individual chair which allows you to experience FULL 4D elements. 
  4. The Korean theatre is overall bigger



OVERALL:

  • Very unique
  • Fun for family or fun for a date!
  • Not cheap. My ticket cost $27 each
  • You choose your seats when you purchase
  • There are 5 seats-groups. If your party is more than 5 people then separation will naturally occur.
  • I recommend going if the movie playing has a lot of action scenes so that all elements of 4D can be experienced.
