More Cinemas, Ireland’s largest multiplex cinema chain has announced the opening of a second OmniplexMAXX screen at Mahon Point, Cork today (March 24th).

The demand for OmniplexMAXX in Cork has been exceptional since the opening of the first MAXX screen at Mahon Point four years ago. As with all Omniplex locations, we remain committed to providing the best cinema experience possible. Last year the MAXX screen was upgraded with Dolby Atmos and this year, MAXX Vol.2 launches with the same state of the art sound, super-sized Cinemascope screen and superior seating as part of our continued investment in Omniplex Cork. We have doubled our MAXX audience capacity to cater for the demand from Cork audiences, our busiest Omniplex cinema in the Republic.

This is combined with state of the art Dolby Atmos sound system, filling the room with ‘moving audio’ which flows around each and every spectator. The new and spacious MAXX Vol.2 auditorium at Mahon Point hosts 242 customers at full capacity, all experiencing this phenomenal visual and aural delight from the comfort of bespoke red leather rocker chairs.
