TALLINN: The sixth multiplex has opened in Estonia in May, a four-screen midiplex with 4K digital Sony projectors. The new cinema is located in a multifunctional entertainment and wellbeing centre in the wealthy Viimsi county situated just outside the capital city of Tallinn.
The four cinema halls have a total capacity of 418 seats, 3D capability, and is unique among Estonia’s commercial exhibitors by the inclusion of a 5D hall with added seat movement, vibration and water sprinkling functions.
The cinema will be operated by the entertainment centre’s owners, adding another exhibition company to the already existing ones.
Estonia is currently undergoing a cinema boom of sorts, with 2 new midiplexes added to the nation’s total screen capacity this year, a further five regional cinemas installing digital projectors in 2014 and the Nordic and Baltic region’s first IMAX cinema set to open in Tallinn in the autumn of 2014.
