Project Description

Client:   Odeon
Location:  Bournemouth
Completed:   February 2017

Swindon Interiors were pleased to be announced as the principal contractor for the fit out of the new build Odeon Bournemouth at the Bh2 Leisure Complex. ODEON Bournemouth boasts 1,686 seats, 10 screens and features a state-of-the-art ISENSE screen.

The project involved the fit out of;

  • Cinema Entrance
  • Foyer
  • Concessions
  • Hall to Screens
  • Washrooms

10 Auditoriums, including iSense with Dolby Atmos & a massive screen measuring in at 18metres by 10metres (59ft x 32ft).

The iSense system delivers almost 9 million pixels for an even brighter, clearer and more detailed picture. Each screen is specifically curved to maximise light reflection, particularly important for 3D.

The cinema utilises various NEC projectors in conjunction with Doremi playback servers. Dolby CP 750 and 850 sound processors are used together with LuisWaSSman amplifiers and speakers throughout. The “standard” screens are configured for 7.1 surround using 2K projection, providing more than adequate illumination, resolution and sound quality for the relatively small screens in comparison to Screen 4, the PLF screen. The PLF ISENSE screen is equipped with full 56-channel Dolby Atmos as well as utilising 4K projection.

The cinema also has a special kids screen, Screen 5, with a special seaside-themed soft play pit at the front of the auditorium and “VIP” reclining seats in other screens.
