ODEON Leicester to get luxury upgrade!
Bringing luxury comfort and style to Leicester, ODEON is to undergo a major transformation to become a fully-reclining ODEON Luxe cinema come summertime.
As film fans gear up for the season’s highly-anticipated blockbusters, residents can still catch their favourite films as the cinema is remaining open throughout the refurbishment.
The transformed cinema will feature 895 luxury handmade reclining seats across its 12 screens, giving lucky guests triple the legroom and increased personal space and comfort, as well as individual retractable tables to ensure the ultimate in-cinema comfort.
Along with the enhanced comfort, guests at ODEON Luxe Leicester will also get to experience a complete overhaul of the technology, including a new fully-reclining, state-of-the-art, 143-seat iSense screen, delivering a truly immersive cinema experience.
Taller than a double decker bus, the screen will measure 15m x 6.2m, and is curved to maximise light reflection, packing cutting-edge Dolby ATMOS 3D sound and 4K digital projectors that deliver almost nine million pixels for an even clearer, ultra-high definition picture.
Additionally, a new in-screen lighting system will also help minimise distractions between guests, and any guests who are hard of hearing can take advantage of a new Dolby Fidelio Audio Description system and an upgraded hearing-impaired system across all screens.
Dom Beck, General Manager at ODEON Luxe Leicester – “We have a strong base of film lovers in Leicester and we are so pleased to bring them this upgraded experience. From the new tech innovations through to the superior comfort, we are sure Leicester locals will be impressed with ODEON Luxe Leicester and we look forward to welcoming them through our doors.”
The cinema’s new and exciting upgrades will land just in time for the season’s explosive blockbusters, including the highly awaited return of everyone’s favourite toy team in Toy Story 4 (21 June), Peter Parker’s next adventure in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2 July) and the live-action remake of generational classic, The Lion King (19 July).
The cinema’s foyer and retail area are also undergoing a complete facelift, with guests able to choose from an extensive range of new food and drink options, including lattice fries, chunky chips, chicken strips, sweet and salted popcorn, hot dogs, nachos, Tango Ice Blast and a Coca Cola Freestyle machine with over 100 different flavours to enjoy. The cinema will also boast an all-new Oscar’s Bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with a brand new Costa Coffee store onsite
