New multiplex cinema opening in Ljubljana

Ljubljana – A new multiplex cinema will open in Ljubljana on Wednesday. Located in the Supernova shopping mall in the southern borough of Rudnik, it will have seven theatres with a combined 1,357 seats.

The cinemas offer seats in various quality (standard, double-lover, VIP, VIP deluxe) and are equipped with Barco laser projectors and Dolby Atmos sound system.

The multiplex is run by the Austrian company Cineplexx, which is already the largest movie chain in Slovenia with theatres in Kranj, Koper, Novo Mesto, Maribor, Celje and Murska Sobota.

The investment totalled EUR 5.2 million. The company said last week it was convinced that it will pay off. “The multiplex will undoubtedly become the centre of film entertainment, socialising, quality leisure, inspiration and education,” Cineplexx CEO Christian Langhammer said last week.

While the multiplex will open with the premiere of the Hollywood flick Top Gun: Maverick, the company says there will also be place for national and European titles.

Cineplexx Rudnik will be Ljubljana’s second multiplex cinema and it opens at a time when the city’s first multiplex, the ageing Kolosej complex, which opened in 2001, is struggling.

Its owner, Kolosej Kinematografi, has been in bankruptcy proceedings since 2016 and the bankruptcy administrator unsuccessfully attempted to sell it in April this year at an opening price of EUR 7.6 million.
