Leeds film fans can now enjoy the very best in cinema technology and luxury following the grand opening of the highly-anticipated ODEON Luxe Leeds Thorpe Park cinema.
The new cinema has officially opened its doors for business following a glittering gala evening, attended by hundreds of local dignitaries, media and business owners.
Locals are invited to check out the new cinema and all it has to offer, and from now until 30 May, ODEON will be offering a special ticket price of £5 per ticket, before 5pm Monday to Friday. Just in time for the school holidays!
ODEON and Dolby have partnered to bring film fans in and around the city the ultimate cinema experience with ther brand new Dolby Cinema which combines dramatic imaging that delivers a spectacular, leading-edge visual experience through the Dolby Vision dual 4K laser projection system that brings the story alive with spectacular, ultravivid picture.
It delivers twice the brightness, 500 times the contrast ratio, blacker blacks, and an unsurpassed colour palette, all in comparison to standard screens, all projected on a massive 19m screen for a vibrant, lifelike cinema experience like no other.
Spoilt for choice, Leeds film fans also have the option of viewing the latest blockbusters in the cinema’s state-of-the-art iSense screen. Taller than a double decker bus, the screen measures 15m x 6.2m, and is curved to maximise light reflection, packing cutting-edge Dolby Atmos sound and 4K digital projector that delivers almost nine million pixels for an even clearer, ultra-high definition picture.
The superior technology is combined with the ultimate luxury throughout the cinema including 971 handmade reclining chairs across the 10 screens and top-of-the-range food and drink options including lattice fries and chicken strips along with classic favourites such as sweet and salted popcorn and a Coca Cola Freestyle machine with over 100 different flavours to enjoy.
The cinema also has an Oscar’s Bar serving a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with freshly brewed coffee from the Costa Coffee station.
John Alls, general manager at ODEON Luxe Leeds Thorpe Park, said: “After months of works we are thrilled to be opening our doors to film fans in Leeds. In partnership with Dolby we are excited to be at the forefront of cinema technology and luxury and are delighted to bring this unparalleled experience to the community.”
Julian Stanford, senior director Dolby Cinema Europe, said: “It’s exciting to see the growth of Dolby Cinema in the UK with a second ODEON offering our technology to revolutionise cinematic experiences.
“We’re delighted to be at the opening of ODEON Luxe Leeds, a cinema built from scratch, designed to bring local film fans a truly immersive and unrivalled cinematic experience. Filmmakers are choosing Dolby Cinema technology to create a new generation of storytelling, and starting tonight we can’t wait for film fans in Leeds to experience the true magic of Dolby Cinema.”
