The Odeon will be the first to open in the town for over three decades
The finishing touches have been applied to Orpington’s new cutting-edge cinema.
Ahead of the cinema’s opening next week, the state-of-the-art ISENSE screen - one of only two in the UK - will today take pride of place in a 276-seat theatre, featuring floor-to-ceiling Dolby ATMOS sound.
The screen measures 15m x 6.2m, and is curved to maximise light reflection, packing state-of-the-art 4K digital projectors that deliver almost nine million pixels for an even clearer and more detailed picture.
Orpington’s first cinema for 34 years will hold 959 seats across seven screens - and tickets are on-sale now for opening weekend at just £2 during Friday February 26 and Saturday February 27.
Tickets for opening weekend are almost entirely sold out, but the last few can still be snapped up at www.odeon.co.uk/orpington
Some of the biggest films to be shown in the brand-new cinema include Goosebumps, Deadpool and the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Trevor Cavell, general manager at the cinema, said: “We’re less than two weeks away from opening the doors of our new cinema, and the team couldn’t be more excited.
“To bring cinema back to Orpington after three decades - on our cutting edge ISENSE screen - will be a truly unique experience for residents, and we look forward to welcoming as many local film fans on February 26 as we can.”
