Fanatical about film? Odeon opens in Belfast this week

After the spectacular opening ceremony and non-traffic jam, the opening of Victoria Square has been somewhat of a slow burn with waves of activity every couple of months.

More food outlets opened in May, and this week sees the opening of the eight screen Odeon cinema upstairs on the second floor in the complex.

There’s a preview screening tonight, and then doors open to the paying public on Friday 18.

The largest screen has 465 seats, with another four between 200-300, and three smaller ones. Four of the screens offer Premiere Seats – in the centre, slightly wider, and slightly more expensive.

Evening and weekend ticket prices are £6.20, under 15s get in for £4.20, while seniors and students pay £4.50). Premier seats at evenings and weekends add a £1.50 premium. There’s a family standard ticket for 2 adults/2 children or 1 adult/3 children which offers quite a saving at £15.20 (or £21.20 premium).

This weekend, they’re showing Wall-e (U), Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (PG), Mamma Mia! (PG), Meet Dave (PG), The Spiderwick Chronicles (PG), Hancock (12A) and Wanted (18).

Time to dig out that unused guest pass after the Bourne Fiasco and check it out ...
