Project Description

Client:   Odeon
Location:  Orpington
Completed:   February 2016

Swindon Interiors were pleased to be announced as the principal contractor for the fit out of the new build Odeon Orpington. Europe’s largest cinema group Odeon (AMC), opened Orpington’s first cinema for 34 years. ODEON Orpington boasts 959 seats and feature a state-of-the-art ISENSE screen and a host of other cutting-edge cinema tech.

The project involved the fit out of;

  • Cinema Entrance
  • Foyer
  • Concessions
  • Hall to Screens
  • Washrooms
  • 7 Auditoriums, including iSense with Dolby Atmos;

Floor to ceiling and wall to wall, iSense screens are huge and have four times the resolution of standard projectors. They deliver 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’s ISENSE screen features luxury seating throughout.

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.
