Odeon host gala opening night

Odeon hosted a gala opening night of their new cinema at Bh2 in Bournemouth on 9th February following completion of the fit out. This coincided with the public realm areas and the doors being opened to the public to the whole centre for the first time. The opening in time for the school half term break led to 5000 people a day visiting the centre and 23,500 tickets sold for the films on offer, making the cinema the second best performing cinema for Odeon in the UK. Restaurants trading now include TGI Fridays, Chiquitos, Frankie & Benny’s, ASK Italian, Nando’s and Miller & Carter.


See below for testimony from a member of the public beneath an article on the Bournemouth Echo website. 7.39am Fri 17 Feb 17


“We went to BH2 this week to go to the cinema, we were so impressed! Booked the recliners for the cinema and went for meal first. What an amazing complex. I usually hate going to the cinema but I'll certainly be going much more often now. In fact I may go tonight. Love it. Most of the negative comments are from those who haven't even visited the venue”.
