30 new jobs will be created when a 7 million euro cinema opens next month in Navan, Co. Meath. The 35,000 sq ft state-of-the-art outlet is situated at the expanded site of the town’s original cinema at Kennedy Road, which has undergone complete renovation.

The Arc Cinema Navan will be the north east’s only all-VIP seating cinema with each auditorium boasting extra-large luxurious rocking leather seats for maximum comfort with stadium-style tiers for a perfect view from every seat.

This six-screen luxury cinema will be the third location for the Arc Cinema chain, which joins those in Drogheda and Wexford town.

All screens will use the latest technology with crystal-clear digital projection, 3D and high frame rate capability, extra-large screens and powerful Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound.

By integrating the 15,000 sq ft former Jesters play centre unit, the end result is a much larger and improved leisure offering with direct access to the cinema complex from Navan Town Centre and its spacious car park. The entire premises has been stripped back to shell and core and boasts new lifts, foyer, entrance, screens and the luxury leather armchair seats. We are very excited to welcome a new neighbour to the centre in such a great, convenient location, and look forward to the opportunities this development will bring to Navan as a whole.  We are thrilled with the great customer cinema experience that The Arc Cinema will deliver, right on our doorstep.
Pat Mullaney, Centre Manager – Navan Town Centre

    Navan has an influx of Deaf people and is certainly growing in numbers, my only question is will they provide subtitles on the films otherwise they end up going to the Odeon Cinemas that provide subtitles films sometimes at Blanchardstown or Finglas which is a pain in the arse to travel just to see the film.

    Unfortunately someone didn’t do their research. The original cinema in Navan was The Palace cinema on Lodlow street. It opened in 1914, and closed in 1998. It later became and currently is the Palace nightclub. In 1942 The Lyric cinema opened on Brews Hill, but was converted into apartments in the 90s.
