€1.3m cinema boost

UCI Cinemas has opened a new branch in Stillorgan - taking over the old Ormonde Cinema.

The cinema group has given a €1.3m cash injection for the refurbishment of the centre and the entire seven screens are now fully digital - five of which are capable of 3D content.

A UCI spokesman said that there is the capacity to store 8,000 films at any one time and the cinema make-over includes a full revamp of the cinema's facilities and interior with 860 new seats, including 150 premier seats.
