Opened fully 10 October 1997 but had a special charity screening of Disney’s “Hercules” the day before.
After not much changing her since opening (apart from DBOX in S8 & screen 3 replacing seats from those that where there in from start Virgin Premiere Screen) Doldon Cineworld Currently under going a major refurbishment – due to be completed spring 2020. Open still during this (Screen 1, 2 & 11 being worked on at the moment). Includes All new seating in screens, Screen 6 getting superscreen upgrade, Screen 11 made into smaller studio style screens (40-60 seats), 3 in total, i think making it 14 screen complex once done. Im sure the lobby will get a spruce up as well
I hope that they are not replacing Scope screens with Flat 1.85 screens necessitating that Scope movies have to be letterboxed.
In Cineworld jargon the terms ‘Superscreen’ or ‘Studio’ do often mean Flat 1.85 screens.
I hope my fears are misplaced.
Based on refurb at Newcastle, Id of thought the smaller screens (3 ,4, 8 & 9 all 117 seats or less at moment) would mostly lkely the ones to goto Flat 1.85.1:1 format. Not sure on studio ones as Newcastle ones are scope (though these were done by Empire)Screen 6 which is a large auditorium (540 seats) id of thought would retain its scope screen for superscreen
Quite a big refurb don – 11 screens as before
All new foyer
Prev Screens 1-5 were to left as you go in, Large screen 6 2 entrances either side of popcorn etc 7-11 to the right with an little arcade.
Now Screens 1 & 2 look to be same size with new seating carpeting Screen 3 & 4 now have new entrances via a new corridor between them & look to be larger. Screen 5 has gone Screen 6 is Now the Superscreen (Now called screen 5) Screen 6 & 7 is where Screen 7, 8,9 were and look to same sizes as 3 & 4 on opp side. Screen 8 (formally Screen 10) Then Screen 9-11 are Smaller screens possbly like screens13-16 at Cineworld Newcastle) which look to be nearly finished so not yet opened. Screen 10 & 11 are accessed by new doorway (where the arcade usd to be) also there are stairs & new lift to disabled access to certain screens (3-5 i think)
