ODEON has opened the doors to its brand-new Islington Square cinema, which also marks the launch of ODEON Luxe & Dine. An evolution of the existing Luxe experience and designed for grown-ups, the state-of-the-art ODEON Luxe & Dine Islington combines gourmet food, delicious drinks and comfortable recliner seats to provide guests with a premium cinema experience like no other.
Guests at the cinema can choose from a carefully created menu which includes items such as Wagyu beef burgers, Moving Mountains Vegan burgers, Wild Boar hotdogs and Flatbread pizzas. Alongside this selection of brilliant food, guests can enjoy Veuve Clicquot champagne and signature cocktails – all can be done digitally via a new dedicated ‘myODEON’ app which will be served directly to their seats. The app also allows guests to store their e-tickets, ODEON membership and more, as well as inviting friends and family to join you by sharing the screening and seat you’ve booked.
ODEON Luxe & Dine Islington builds on the Square’s premium leisure offering with its art deco inspired foyer space, lavish Oscar’s Bar and the 202 handmade and fully reclining seats fitted in all six screens. The combination of rich heritage and the film experience of tomorrow makes ODEON Luxe & Dine a unique place to truly immerse yourself and complements Islington Square’s cultural and historic theme, and well positions the destination as a place made for the future.
Carol Welch, MD ODEON UK&I said: “We’re incredibly excited to open the doors to our latest premium offering for guests, ODEON Luxe & Dine Islington. ODEON Luxe is the fastest growing luxury cinema brand in the UK, and we’re thrilled to be taking Luxe to the next level with an all new dine-in proposition. Our guests are at the heart of all that we do and we can’t wait for film fans to get a taste of the new experience, as well as our new gourmet menu.”
ODEON Luxe & Dine Islington is open just in time for some of the biggest films of the year including Frozen 2 (now showing), Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (December 19) and Cats (December 20). With big blockbusters and the ultimate premium experience to match, there’s no better time to enjoy the luxury of ODEON Luxe & Dine Islington.
Developed by Cain International, Islington Square is located in the heart of Islington, just off vibrant Upper Street – a short walk from both Angel station (Northern Line) and Highbury and Islington (Overground and Victoria Line). Situated on the former site of the historic Royal Mail sorting office, the architecture blends contemporary design with its historic surroundings, transforming it into a unique North London destination. Totalling 170,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space, Islington Square features two generous double height retail arcades, a tree-lined boulevard and a public realm that will seamlessly link the development with Upper Street. Odeon will sit alongside a thriving leisure line up including Third Space gym, Maggie & Rose family members club, Megan’s, OmNom and Duck & Dry hair salon.
