Bosses at Clydebank’s new-look cinema admit their plans to revamp the site are “ambitious” as they unveil their luxury recline seating as part of the extensive renovation.

Omniplex Cinemas – who took over the iconic Empire Cinemas in December – announced two screens at the Britannia Way complex have now been kitted out with the “ultimate comfort” electric recliners following the completion of the first screen renovation last week.

And the Irish leisure and entertainment provider insists they won’t stop there, with plans to bring relaxing sofa beds to every screen, along with kiosks and touch screen collection points in the main lobby and an “immersive” new viewing experience.

Paul John Anderson, Director of the Omniplex Cinema Group said: "We are delighted to kick off our renovation plans in Clydebank, plans which we know will elevate the viewing experience for our customers and allow them to watch films in the ultimate comfort.”

“We know the Clydebank cinema is central to the community, which is why this investment is so important.

"With the addition of our Recline seating and the OmniplexMAXX screens later in the year, we are giving the cinema a new lease of life and cannot wait to see our customers enjoying the best we have to offer.”

OmniplexMAXX is the cinema chain’s Premium Large Format and immerses the viewer through three key senses, sight, sound and feel.

Each OmniplexMAXX screen incorporates luxury Recline seating, a gigantic screen for the ultimate viewing experience and a Dolby Atmos 3D sound system, with Clydebank getting them later in 2024.

The renovation works at Omniplex Clydebank come after news of Omniplex Cinema Group’s expansion into Great Britain last year, with the Irish cinema company making an investment of £22.5 million over the next 18 months to acquire and refurbish five existing Empire Cinema locations across Great Britain.

Omniplex first opened its doors to customers in Ireland in 1991 and has since amassed a total of 353 screens across 43 cinema locations. The cinema company is renowned for its state-of-the-art projection and digital sound facilities, as well as diverse programming which includes sporting events, musicals, concerts, and ballet in addition to the latest cinema releases.
