First there was 3-D. Then came IMAX, and then X-D. Now, thanks to digital cinema projection company Barco and its so-called "CinemaVangelist" Ted Schilowitz, there's Barco Escape: an immersive, 270-degree movie viewing experience. Next week, there's a chance to see what all the hype is about when Redwood City's Cinemark 20 theater unveils the multi-screen system.
The theater is one of only five nationwide to offer Barco Escape commercially starting next Friday, Sept. 19, when "The Maze Runner" will open on the three-screen system.
Cinemark 20 is located at 825 Middlefield Road, Redwood City. Go to cinemark.com or call 650-701-1341.
