Omniplex Irelands largest cinema group has unveil plans for its new concept three-screen 571 seat Swan Cinemas which is located in the Swan Shopping Centre Rathmines Dublin. Construction has started on the project which is scheduled to open this November. Swan Cinemas is the first cinema in Dublin custom designed for digital cinema. Showcasing the very latest 3D technology will give patrons an unparalleled movie going experience; Swan Cinemas is at the very forefront of the digital cinema revolution. Programming policy will cater largely for mainstream movies however digital facilities will allow for a more diverse and varied programming schedule considering the population mix within the Rathmines and wider Dublin 6 area. Commenting on the €3 000 000 investment Paul Anderson (Omniplex / Swan Cinemas managing director) says “Having pursued plans for a cinema in Rathmines for over 10 years we are delighted that at last the people of Rathmines and the wider communities of Dublin 6 will have a quality cinema on their doorstep”. Rathmines has been without a cinema since the closure of the Stella over five years ago. The entire Dublin 6 region has been underserved by cinema since before the closure of the Classic Cinema in Harold’s Cross (originally named The Kenilworth) in August 2003. The state of the art Swan Cinemas will be an invaluable tool in revitalizing the local area. Swan Cinemas
