Popcorn at the ready: Scotland's biggest cinema is now open

Popcorn at the ready: Scotland's biggest cinema is now open

Scotland's newest Cineworld offers a superscreen the size of a five-a-side football pitch and a state-of-the-art sound system.

The brand new cinema at Silverburn Shopping Centre is one of the most technologically advanced in the country.

Boasting a range of special effects and 3D visuals, the screen stands at 41ft high and 74ft wide.

The cinema seats up to 470 people and is one of the largest theatres in the UK.

The new venue is part of a 14-screen multiplex in the shopping centre, featuring 37 amplifiers and 57 Dolby Atmos speakers.

Cineworld currently has the largest cinema in Glasgow with 18 screens at Renfrew street.

Matt Eyre, senior vice president of operations for Cineworld, said: "This is our version of the big screen. We can’t have IMAX everywhere and IMAX don’t want to be everywhere.

"We’ve also got an IMAX already at the Glasgow Science Centre which is very successful, so there is a want for a superscreen here.

"It’s a huge and fully immersive experience. It’s almost as big as the IMAX in the science centre and is bigger than anything at our Renfrew Street cinema.

"It has a new sound system, Dolby Atmos, which splits the channels, so we have 57 speakers all with their own sound channels, which means that when the film is mixed right, the sound will be all around you.

"It’s our third superscreen after Milton Keynes and Chester, and both have been extremely successful. In Glasgow the appetite for watching movies is huge and we are delighted to bring this to Scotland."

Richard Henderson, Cineworld Silverburn's general manager, added: "We’re absolutely thrilled to unveil Scotland’s first ever superscreen at our new cinema in Silverburn.

"At Cineworld we want to offer a great experience for all our customers, making their trip as unique and memorable as possible.

"Superscreen offers a truly unique cinema experience and we’re over the moon it’s a part of our new cinema.

"With such an exciting line up of films this summer we look forward to welcoming the community and sharing our passion for film with everyone in the local area."
