While last year sources close to the developers said that they hoped to start work on the project in 2011, a spokesperson has said that it is "still at the very early stages of the process. "

The cinema is being developed by the shopping centre's landlords in conjunction with Ward Anderson, the country's long-established and largest cinema chain. Irish Life Assurance is the majority shareholder in the shopping centre with Ventasker Ltd, owned by Pierce Moloney and Aidan Masterson, also a shareholder.

Ward Anderson operates the only other commercial south-city cinema, The Screen, and is also planning to re-open the cinema at The Square in Tallaght.

Irish people are some of the most regular cinema-goers in the world, with audiences of around 17 million people per year.
