Cineworld launches London’s biggest cinema
March 22, 2019
Cineworld, the UK’s leading cinema chain, has revealed its newly expanded cinema in the O2 entertainment venue making it London’s largest cinema.
The cinema has a capacity of more than 4,500 seats since expanding from 11 to 19 cinema screens. The expansion will officially complete on Friday 12th April making it one of the UK’s most technologically advanced cinemas. The additional eight screens offer VIP and 4DX experiences, complimenting the existing Superscreen and ScreenX immersive technologies.
4DX, only available at Cineworld in the UK, is an innovative cinematic technology which uses high-tech motion seats and special effects to stimulate all five senses. Wind, snow, fog, lightning, bubbles, water and scents work in perfect synchronicity with the film to bring the action on screen to life. The 4DX auditorium houses 156 specially designed seats and will open in time for Avengers: Endgame. Over 2.5 million people have experienced 4DX since Cineworld launched the technology to UK audiences in 2015.
VIP is a premium offering at Cineworld, where audiences can experience the next level in cinema comfort including a private lounge, complimentary dining, Unlimited cinema snacks and luxury reclining seats. This is the first Cineworld VIP to open in London, following the successful launches in Glasgow and Sheffield.
The Cineworld O2 Greenwich already offers Superscreen, a multidimensional sound combined with state-of-the-art projection and Dolby Atmos, as well as ScreenX. ScreenX is the world’s first multi-projection cinema technology expanding the traditional cinema screen to the side auditorium walls, creating a 270-degree viewing experience for the audience. Cineworld O2 Greenwich was the first UK cinema to install this technology in August 2018.
David Spence, General Manager of Cineworld O2 Greenwich said: “We are delighted to offer Londoners a vast world of viewing possibilities with the latest in cinema technology. From extreme cinema with snow, fog and water alongside chairs that vibrate and move, to supreme comfort with reclining seats and complimentary dining. We are excited to represent the future of entertainment and cinema in UK.”
