It’s lights, camera, action in Northern Ireland as the highly anticipated new Omniplex Cinema has arrived.
It comes after the Omniplex Group invested £4.5m in the new site at The Outlet, creating 25 brand new jobs.
The arrival of the first ever Omniplex Cinema to Banbridge is part of a recent investment at the retail park real-estate management firm Tristan Capital Partners and local company, The Lotus Group.
6,000 Blockbuster Screenings
The brand new Omniplex Cinema is one of the first major steps in the plan aimed at enhancing the leisure, food & beverage offering at The Outlet.
The Outlet is a well thought out choice for the Omniplex Group as the site has incredible potential, marked first and foremost by its easy access catchment population of 1.1m within a 60 minute drive of its location.
The cinema is set to be one of the busiest in Northern Ireland with almost 6,000 blockbuster screenings scheduled for the remainder of 2016 including Ghostbusters, Star Trek Beyond, The BFG, Finding Dory, to name a few.
State Of The Art Screens
It is also home to Northern Ireland’s first ever MAXX screen with dual projection and an advanced sound system. Two projectors work side by side to blast the highest quality picture on to a mammoth 20 meter screen, whilst 41 individually amped speakers pump out sound effect from the screen itself.
The MAXX auditorium is designed with optimum sight lines in mind – curved screens give optimum viewing pleasure whether at middle or edge seating.
Seats are custom designed for comfort so the viewer can sit back and truly feel part of the world in front of them. The remaining 7 auditoriums are equipped with a high class Sony 4K projection system and Dolby 7.1 surround sound for captivating and pleasurable viewing.
The new addition to The OUTLET promises to become a firm favourite with film enthusiasts with 1,500 free parking spaces on site, assigned seating, pre-booking of tickets and comfortable rocker style chairs. Weekend Kids Clubs tickets are priced at just £2 per person.
For families of children with autism, sensory screenings are also scheduled at weekends where lights are dimmed instead of turned off completely and sound levels are lowered to make for more comfortable viewing. The new Omniplex has ensured that everyone can enjoy their favourite actors on the big screen with a Tuesday Treat offering £3.50 tickets and subtitled screenings every Monday.
The Outlet Banbridge was recently acquired in what was of the largest retail deals to ever take place in the region. Over 50 leading brands including Nike, DKNY, LK Bennett and GAP have a presence at the 204,354 sq. ft. outlet shopping village, alongside cafes, restaurants and leisure activities.
Further local and international fashion brands will be joining the fold in the coming months as part of the substantial development.
The Banbridge Omniplex is now open at The OUTLET with screenings four times a day.
