The Xbox advertisements will provide moviegoers across America with a 4D motion ad experience that will run in select MX4D technology enabled theatres from September 14 – November 1.

“Screenvision Media strives to bring the newest and most innovative technology to our brand partners and we’re thrilled that Xbox will be the first advertiser to utilize this technology in all our MX4D enabled theatres nationwide,” said Christine Martino, executive vice president of Ad Sales, Screenvision Media. “MX4D gives our partners, like Xbox, the opportunity to seamlessly transform their traditional ads into disruptive, engaging and interactive experiences for moviegoers across the country.”
