Progress on the cinema build is going well and despite the various setbacks the entire construction industry has faced (supply chain issues, petrol issues… the list is endless!) we are pleased to announce that we are on schedule for an early 2022 opening.
Our cinema build encompasses two parts: refurbishing the existing old building which will become our café bar area and a new structure at the rear which will become our auditorium. Both are progressing nicely but a lot of this initial work is hidden beneath the ground – the next stage of the build will be very visible and you’ll see a lot of changes very quickly!
Once the main structure is complete the fun really starts. The fit-out of the auditorium includes state of the art sound and projection equipment, and our luxurious custom-made armchairs and sofas are being manufactured in Belfast as we speak.
The café bar area will be your home from home for you to relax in pre or post-film – or even on those days that you haven’t even got a ticket! You’ll be able to sink into our comfy leather sofas, do some work or grab something to eat at our larger tables, or sit at the bar stools in the window alcoves and watch the world go by. There will be a cosy library area to curl up with a good book in or enjoy a cocktail underneath our New York prohibition-style chandelier lights.
We are putting the final touches on our interior design including signature fragrances and hand wash, talking to local suppliers about stocking their produce and finalising the bar design with our local joiner, Shaun. All of these individual touches will help make your visit extra special.
We can’t wait to welcome you all!
