Now a district of south east Greater London, Orpington had been without a cinema since the Commodore Cinema closed in 1982. That was finally rectified on Friday 26th February 2016, when this seven screen Odeon opened in the new town centre Walnut Shopping Centre, situated on the site of a former job centre.
Odeon had exchanged contracts in July 2013, but the development was held up when insufficient businesses were willing to rent the units around the cinema: 60% had to be pre-let before construction could start. As a result, the proposed 2014 opening date was missed.
The first floor foyer and auditoriums are accessed by escalator or lift. As with most current multiplexes, tickets are sold at the concession counters. There is a Croma Pizza Point, with an adjacent seating area.
The total seating capacity is 941: Screen 1: 64 seats; Screen 2: 184; Screen 3: 98; Screen 4: 276; Screen 5: 86; Screen 6: 92 and Screen 7: 141. In addition, all have at least two wheelchair spaces.
All have Digital AES Sound. Screen 4, the largest, presents the ODEON ISENSE experience. According to Odeon, this entails “A super sized, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall screen, with a state-of-the-art 4K digital projector that delivers almost 9m pixels, four times the resolution of a standard screen, so the film is brighter, clearer and alive with detail. Combined with Dolby Atmos, a sound system that introduces a powerful new listening experience, ISENSE is an incredible experience that will blow you away.” This was the second ODEON ISENSE installation, the first being at Birmingham Broadway Plaza.
On the first two days, Friday and Saturday 26th and 27th February, all tickets for all shows were just £2.00. Needless to say, most of the screenings quickly sold out. It is hoped that the good folk of Orpington will continue to support this well-appointed new cinema.
