Omniplex Cinemas officially reopened the cinema at Centre Point Retail Park, Roscommon town last Friday (9th). The company announced its plans to secure the long-term future of the cinema with a €2.5m investment last Thursday, just days after C&L Plex announced it would close its doors permanently.
Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas said: “Roscommon deserves a quality Multiplex, so we have decided to step in to re-open the former ‘C&L Plex’ cinema and offer employment to former C&L Plex staff members”.
There are plans to renovate and expand the cinema which officially reopened under the Omniplex Cinema brand last Friday.
Mark Anderson added: “As we continue to expand cinemas into large and medium-sized towns around Ireland, the demand for cinema grows. For the last five years in a row, Ireland has had the highest cinema-going population in Europe and admissions are still growing”.
Omniplex’s involvement in Roscommon is part of the cinema group’s major expansion plans in the Republic of Ireland – including a 10-screen D’Luxx Cinema in Salthill, Galway as well as plans for new cinemas in Ballinasloe, Killarney, Longford and Shannon. Omniplex also recently announced plans for a 5-screen cinema in Mullingar.
The company confirmed this week that cinema listings and online booking would soon be available for the Roscommon cinema at www.omniplex.ie.
