All of our 360+ cinemas offer digital projection and excellent sound technology.
Every cinema is designed to provide guests with their favourite food and drinks, comfortable seats and a warm welcome every time they visit.
We want our guests to enjoy the best comfort, always.
Like our AMC colleagues in the USA, we're investing heavily in our cinemas to install luxury recliner seating and upgraded facilities throughout. We already offer guests premier seating and VIP seating in most of our cinemas.
Seven of our cinemas have so far been refurbished in the UK and re-launched as 'ODEON Luxe' with over 490 screens refitted with recliner seats and there is much more to come.
Our cinemas receiving a 'Luxe' makeover receive the full package - not only luxurious reclining leather seats, but also new and upgraded screens delivering a truly immersive, ultra-high-definition cinema experience, with new 4k projection and Dolby ATMOS sound. All sound systems are upgraded with new speakers and Dolby Surround 7.1 sound. A new in-screen lighting system also helps minimise distractions between guests, and any guests who are hard of hearing can also take advantage of a new Dolby Fidelio Audio Description system and Hearing-impaired loops across all screens.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Popcorn and drinks are an integral part of a trip to the cinema! We’re constantly evolving our recipes and adding to the range to give our guests more choice, more taste, and great value. We have freshly popped popcorn in 35 of our sites in the UK and we are introducing more Coke Freestyle machines and delicious hot food offers.
Many of our cinemas are fully licensed to sell a range of alcoholic drinks. Our popular Gallery VIP bars are enjoyed in six sites in the UK and we are introducing 'Oscar's' bars in our newly fully refurbished 'Luxe' sites, named after our founder Oscar Deutsch.
64 ODEON UK cinemas have an on-site Costa Coffee; our own branded 'Lounge Cafe' coffee offer is in 19 sites in UCI Kinowelt and Fargii coffee and ice cream franchises in two sites in Cinesa.
Our wide-ranging food selection includes hot dogs, pizzas, chicken stripsm nachos and lattice fries. We have freshly made Croma pizzas in six sites and two of our sites currently offer our popular 'Pizza and Planks,' with a variety of tapas-style dishes. We also have a fresh pizza offer in 20 cinemas in Italy where we also offer 8 different recipes for 'on demand' sandwiches.
PREMIUM LARGE FORMAT CINEMAS
We are proud to have the largest premium large format offer in Europe, thanks to our longstanding partnerships with IMAX and Dolby and our own premium brands, iSense and Scape. Guests love them, so we're adding more all the time.
