CINEWORLD GROUP MARKS NEW MILESTONE WITH 2,000 SCREENS
Cineworld Group plc, Europe's second biggest cinema chain, has reached the milestone of over 2,000 screens across its portfolio, with the opening of its 217th cinema in Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK.
2015 has witnessed more openings than Cineworld Group has ever made in one year, with 19 new cinemas opened across four countries. This includes 11 cinemas in the UK, five in Romania, two in Poland and one in Israel.
Innovation remains at the heart of the Group's strategy - in January 2015, Cineworld launched the UK's first 4DX cinema at Milton Keynes. Overall, the group now operates 14 4DX screens across its territories.
Mooky Greidinger, Chief Executive Officer of Cineworld Group plc said:
"Passing the milestone of 2,000 screens is a fantastic achievement for Cineworld Group after a hugely successful year of new cinema openings. Our vision is to be the best place to watch a movie and I'm delighted that we have been able to bring this vision to more towns and cities across Europe. We remain committed not just to opening more screens, but also to ensuring we bring the latest innovations to our customers."
