18 Dec State-of-the-art Cinema Complex
AN 8-screen state-of-the-art cinema complex – the largest in the South West – will be built at Eaton Fair Shopping Centre.
The announcement was made following an agreement struck between cinema operator United Cinemas and centre owner Citygate Properties.
The Eaton Fair cinema will be a gold class standard development, embracing in-theatre dining including waiter service of food and drinks to movie lovers while in their recliner seats.
United Cinemas are an award-winning Australian company renowned for creating memorable experiences for movie patrons, including high tea parties, Q&A screenings with movie stars and themed nights – such as the recent Ladies Night Out screening of hit movie Oceans 8.
United Cinemas has cinema complexes in nine locations around Australia.
United Cinemas Chairman Roy Mustaca OAM said the Bunbury cinema complex would offer movie goers a new world-class experience, akin to their award-winning Craigieburn complex in Melbourne’s north.
“We are creating a fantastic opportunity for Bunbury and the gateway to the South West region,” Mr Mustaca said.
“We believe that the cinematic experience with all the new Hollywood movies and blockbusters is still alive and well and we want to show everyone why!
“This cinema will be housing the latest in digital technology available from Screen and the latest Dolby Atmos Sound with our signature two tier Dress Circle seating design which we are famous for. Every cinema will feature comfy stadium seating and our new electric “Grand Recliners” and not to forget the new food and entertainment precinct that will benefit the local community and retailers.”
Citygate Properties Leasing Manager Michael Prosser said the Eaton cinema complex would offer a movie experience like nothing seen in the South West before.
“We were determined to ensure the right cinema operator was selected,” Mr Prosser said.
“They will be part of the Eaton community for decades to come, so we had to spend the time to get it right.
“Once we saw the quality of the United Craigieburn cinema, we were blown away. It was so far ahead of the pack.”
Other additional announcements regarding amusement and entertainment offerings surrounding the new Eaton cinema are expected later this year.
