ODEON – Europe’s largest cinema group – will next week be bringing film back to Edinburgh’s Fort Kinnaird retail park after a 10-year absence, by opening an all-new cinema at the site on Friday 20 March 2015.

The new seven screen, 1,182 seat cinema will be opening just in time for Easter, and offers a superior cinema experience with a cutting-edge Dolby ATMOS system in one of its screens, as well as ODEON Premiere seating, and a whole range of special offers for ODEON guests.

The new cinema opening has also created 52 jobs for the local community, with a variety of positions filled, including management roles and screen technicians.

As well as the latest films, there will be special events for guests including great value ODEON Kids screenings, special screenings for seniors with ODEON Silver Cinema and even the company’s ground-breaking Screen Unseen nights – which allow guests to see an unmissable up-and-coming film for just £5 a ticket, weeks before its official release.

The new cinema will also offer an extensive range of food & drink options for guests, including freshly-popped salted popcorn, a Costa coffee shop, Make It Your Way hot dogs, a Beechdean’s ice cream stand and freshly-cooked lattice fries & chunky chips.

Key features of the new cinema will include:

. 1,182 seats across seven screens
