Omniplex Cinemas announced today they will step in to save the former ‘C&L Plex’ cinema in Roscommon. On Monday the 5thof August, C&L Plex announced they were permanently closing, with immediate effect. Omniplex are now in discussions with the hope of re-opening the cinema tomorrow, Friday the 9th of August.
Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas says, ‘Roscommon deserves a quality Multiplex, so we have decided to step in to re-open the former ‘C&L Plex’ cinema and offer employment to former C&L Plex staff members. We hope to re-open the doors tomorrow, Friday 9th of August, under the Omniplex Cinema Brand and will then immediately start looking at exciting renovation and expansion plans to secure the long-term future of the cinema. As we continue to expand cinemas into large & medium sized towns around Ireland the demand for cinema grows. For the last five years in a row, Ireland has had the highest cinema-going population in Europe and admissions are still growing.’
Omniplex involvement in Roscommon comes in line with the cinema group’s major expansion plans in the Republic of Ireland including a 10 screen D’Luxx Cinema in Salthill, Galway as well as new cinema plans in Ballinasloe, Killarney, Longford and Shannon. Omniplex also recently announced plans for a 5 screen cinema in Mullingar.
Cinema listings and online booking for Roscommon will be available soon at www.omniplex.ie.
