A new ODEON Luxe cinema will open at The Springs retail and leisure park in Leeds this spring.

The new cinema will feature 971 handmade reclining seats across 10 brand new high-tech screens and create 80 new jobs in the local area.

It will be home to the UK’s second Dolby Cinema screen - the first outside London following the reopening of ODEON’s flagship venue at Leicester Square.

And it will also boast an ODEON iSense screen that is taller than a double decker bus and curved to maximise light relfection.
