Movie lovers are in for a treat from today (Friday) - as the brand new and unique luxury five screen Park Road cinema - complete with the latest Barco Laser projection technology and a MAXX Recline screen - finally opens.

There's been great anticipation by locals as to what the new state-of-the-art facility will offer - and they won't have to wait any longer as the doors officially open today.

It's also a huge economic boost to the town with the creation of over 25 full and part-time jobs.

“We’re delighted to open our newest cinema in Killarney and can’t wait to welcome the people to the Omniplex experience!" Mark Anderson, Director of Omniplex Cinemas told the Killarney Advertiser.

"The MAXX Recline auditorium with all electric reclining armchairs simply must be experienced. This all-laser projection facility is at the cutting edge of worldwide cinema technology.”

He added that they have worked hard over the last 16 months to ensure their customers across Ireland enjoy a safe cinema going experience.

"We will have the same safety measures in place here in Killarney like online ticketing, reduced auditorium capacity and self-scanning of tickets. Coincidentally, our MAXX Recline screen is naturally well suited to a socially distant world with large fully electric recliner seats and a two metre gap between rows.”

SAFETY

Omniplex’s safety measures include In-Cinema Seat Separation – two metre bubble around each cinema booking. Families and friends may sit beside each other up to a maximum of five guests. Online Ticketing and Shop; tickets may be purchased online and pre-ordering of cinema treats online, for collection, is encouraged. Limited capacity; a maximum of 50 per screen with social distancing also in place in foyers and toilets. Enhanced cleaning regimes; including screen protection at all customer touchpoints. Sanitisation stations in foyers, reduced showtimes, for example only one movie will start and end at a time to facilitate social distancing and extra cleaning.

He came dashing through the town on Saturday night and packed streets greeted him with huge excitement.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
