Record breaking opening weekend for new Craigavon Omniplex

The new Omniplex cinema in Craigavon has broken all company records for an eight screen opening weekend with over 5000 admissions!

Paul John Anderson, Omniplex Operations Director, which has invested more than £5 million in the project, said he was delighted at the support the cinema received over the opening weekend from the greater Craigavon area.
