Omniplex Cinema Group will shortly begin building new five-screen cinemas on land between Aldi and Teso with the site scheduled to open in autumn 2022.
Omniplex, which is owned by the Anderson family and has 260 screens at 34 locations, is investing more than €11 million in the three projects, creating more than 100 jobs during construction and 65 full- and part-time jobs when operational.
Planning permission has been granted for the five-screen cinema to be built near Tesco's in Ballinasloe! The application for the five-screen, single-storey Omniplex is approximately 7.9m high with associated car parking and the gross floor space of the project is 1123m².
The owners of the land, Limehill Esker Limited, have an agreement with Omniplex Holdings. Omniplex Director Mark Anderson stated: "We look forward to creating new movie memories in Ballinasloe, as well as Nenagh and Mullingar."
The town previously had two Cinemas – the Town Hall or Aisling and Swannicks where Utah is now – both on Society St.
