Combining dramatic imaging that delivers a spectacular, leading-edge visual experience through the Dolby Vision dual laser projection system and moving audio which fills the cinema and flows all around you with Dolby Atmos, every person will get a truly immersive and unforgettable cinematic experience, no matter where they are in the 800 seat auditorium.
VIP Luxe comfort
800 guests can now enjoy luxury seating throughout, including over 350 powered Luxe recliners offering extensive legroom, 27 inch width for each seat (28 inch for the 22 seats in the Royal Box), sumptuous comfort and personal tray tables. All 800 seats have been designed to give guests the perfect comfort and viewing experience.
