Located in Navan, County Meath. Diamond Cinemas is a six-screen multiplex situated in the Navan Shopping Centre. It opened just before Christmas 1998 with an official opening on 17th February 1999 when a gala screening of “You’ve Got Mail” with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan was shown. One of the first major events at the cinema was a civic reception for Navan-born actress Moya Farrelly when a screening of “This is My Father”, in which she appeared, was shown. All auditoria have Dolby Surround Sound and digital projection. It made the press in February 2017 when management reputedly banned single men from seeing “Fifty Shades Darker”. Proposals for a 10-screen Flix in the town in 2011, and later a nine-screen Omniplex in 2014, both on Navan Retail Park, were objected to and neither cinema ever materialised. The Diamond Digital Cinemas were closed in 2018. The Arc Cinema opened on an expanded site of the former Diamond Digital Cinemas on 14th December 2018.

On 14th July 2018, the Meath Chronicle announced that Navan’s only cinema, the Diamond Digital, would close after twenty years in operation.

The Arc Cinema, a 35,000 sq ft state-of-the-art development, costing €7 million and situated at the expanded site of the Diamond Digital, which had undergone a complete renovation, opened on 14th December 2018.

According to Scannain.com (28 November 2018), it is the north east’s only all-VIP seating cinema with each of the six auditoriums boasting extra-large luxurious rocking leather seats for maximum comfort with stadium-style tiers for a perfect view from every seat.

It is the third location for the Arc Cinema chain, which joins those in Drogheda and Wexford town.
