Omniplex Cinemas announce today they will officially take over the ownership of the ‘C&L Plex’ cinema in Roscommon. On Monday the 5th of August, C&L Plex announced they were closing their doors for the final time with immediate effect, shocking locals in the area. Omniplex Cinemas have agree to take over the cinema and re-open the doors this Friday the 9th of August.
Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas, says, ‘It’s a sad day in a town to see a cinema close its doors. Not only for the patrons who regularly enjoy their cinema trip, but also for a group of loyal staff. We’ve decided to step in to take-over the cinema and retain the cinema employees. We will re-open the doors on Friday the 9th of August under the Omniplex Cinema brand and will be looking at plans for design upgrade over the next few months’.
The take-over comes in line with the cinema groups major expansion plans in the Republic of Ireland including a 10 screen D’Luxx Cinema in Salthill, 6 screen cinema in Shannon, 5 Screen Cinema in Ballinsloe, and planning permission applied for another 5 screen cinema in Mullingar which have all been announced since the beginning of 2019.
Mark Anderson noted ‘We’re continuing to expand our cinemas into large & medium sized towns around Ireland as the demand for cinema grows. In fact, Ireland is the highest cinema-going nation in Europe for the last five years and based on admissions so far this year we’re not seeing any slowdown’.
