Cape Town - Nu Metro’s Scene Xtreme-cinemas in Gauteng will be showcasing Tom Hanks’ suspenseful new blockbuster, Sully, in full 4K glory from Friday. This means that cinemagoers will be able to see this inspired new film in Ultra High Definition (UHD): the highest resolution-quality possible for cinema screens.

Standard movie shows are in 2K HD – 4K therefore means double the digital perfection. Sully will also be delivered with booming digital 360 degrees-sound (including overhead speakers) in Scene Xtreme - exclusive to Nu Metro Menlyn Park (Pretoria), Clearwater (Johannesburg) and The Glen (Johannesburg).

The Scene Xtreme 4K-experience ensures crisp, clear visuals that bring viewers as close as possible to the real action on-screen – in this instance, a disabled airplane gliding through the air attempting to make an emergency landing on the Hudson River in the middle of New York City!


The shows for Sully in all Scene Xtreme-cinemas also feature next generation digital-projection for 4K UHD visuals on a Large-format screen. This ultra-realistic cinema experience is further enhanced through RealD’s Precision White Screen-technology (PWS) - delivering a much sharper, brighter and more realistic image compared to other standard cinema screens.

Another aspect of the Scene Xtreme experience is the latest in sound technology. Scene Xtreme at Nu Metro Clearwater Mall is the only cinema in Gauteng with Dolby Atmos sound – delivering all-around 3D-sound through the most advanced cinema sound system available. The Atmos-soundtrack for SULLY condenses multiple levels of audio, processed with precision through overhead speakers and crystal clear reproduction – sound objects can literally be moved around in 3D space.

Dolby Atmos is the best cinema audio system on the market; and also the most preferred choice of sound for Hollywood film directors who rely on Atmos to effectively convey their movie to audiences as intended. Dolby Atmos and 4K UHD together will ensure cinemagoers the best possible showcase of SULLY. It is an experience, which inspires goosebumps and adrenalin in all the right places.

The above-spec speaker-systems installed in all Scene Xtreme-cinemas guarantee an experience of movie sound without comparison. Menlyn and The Glen Xtreme will also be showing SULLY with 4K UHD resolution through RealD’s PWS system onto a large-format screen – along with an advanced Dolby 7.1 surround soundtrack.
