Celebrate the return to moviegoing with a visit to a luxurious, state-of-the-art multiplex
As we edge tantalisingly toward normality, one of the most anticipated re-openings is a return to the big screen experience. And what better way to mark the occasion than checking out an exciting, irresistibly indulgent and reassuringly Covid-proof addition to Glasgow's cinemagoing scene: St. Enoch Centre's sparkling new Vue cinema.
Located within the city centre's largest shopping and leisure destination, it's the jewel in the crown of a £40 million redevelopment, marking a new chapter in St. Enoch's history. It features nine screens, each equipped with Sony 4K digital projection and Dolby 7.1 surround sound, while three of the screens also boast 3D capability. A major selling point is that every seat across every screen will be a luxury leather recliner, while a relaxing bar and lounge area will be available to kick back in ahead of film screenings. It's all been perfectly designed to help you unwind and get lost in great stories.
You can also feel confident that every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of your visit – from the installation of touchscreen technology to allow you to buy tickets and select drinks and snacks, to physically distanced seating, aided by smart online booking. Enhanced cleaning, reduced touchpoints, and improved ventilation provide further reassurance.
Film fans will be able to enjoy the hottest films this summer and a wide variety of releases, with blockbuster titles such as Fast & Furious 9, Peter Rabbit 2, In the Heights and A Quiet Place Part II available to watch now, and Black Widow and Space Jam: A New Legacy arriving imminently. The much-anticipated Bond entry No Time to Die and Top Gun: Maverick will follow later in the year.
Visitors to St. Enoch Centre can already enjoy over 70 places to shop and eat, while the aforementioned multimillion-pound investment will also see the addition of TJ Hughes and Scotland's first Boom: Battle Bar. Opening later in 2021 are a mouth-watering line-up of new restaurants, including COSMO, Nando's, Delhi Darbar and Donut King.
With so many options for a pre or post film meal or shopping trip, and luxurious surroundings to settle into, why not make sure your first trip back to the movies is done in style?
