Omniplex is pleased to announce that the former Cineplex cinema on Patrick Street, Waterford, will reopen in December 2014. As part of a €2m refurbishment and upgrade, the 5 screen cinema will be rebranded Omniplex Waterford.
Omniplex Waterford will include an OmniplexMAXX giant screen, the seventh on the island of Ireland, following Antrim, Newry, Cork, Limerick, Rathmines and Derry. An Auro 11.1 by Barco sound system will also be included in the OmniplexMAXX.
Each screen will be installed with the latest Barco digital projection technology. All auditoriums will be fitted with Omniplex’s renowned bespoke rocker armchairs.
It has been the intention of Omniplex to reopen the cinema in Waterford for some time. However, the feasibility of a second cinema in Waterford improved recently, following substantial reductions in commercial property rates and improved confidence in the local economy.
Omniplex believe now is the right time to reopen the cinema in Waterford and are looking forward to re-establishing the town centre as Waterford’s premier cinema destination.
1. The Cineplex Waterford closed in September, 2008
2. There will be no structural alterations to the building
