Hundreds of luxury seats have been installed in Showcase Avonmeads' seven de Lux screens, making it the only cinema in the city to offer cinemagoers luxury recliner seating.

The cinema at Avonmeads Retail Park has also slashed the price of tickets for its standard screens to £6.99. A de Lux screening costs £11.99.           

The installation of the seats comes following the closure of Showcase’s luxury cinema in the city, the Cinema de Lux in Cabot Circus, last week.   

Crispin Lilly, managing director at Showcase Cinemas UK, said: "We're delighted to bring our fantastic recliner seating to Bristol – it seems fitting that Bristol’s first multiplex at Avonmeads should be the first to offer reclining seating to the city. 

"We look forward to welcoming local film fans through our doors, so they can enjoy the ultimate big screen experience at Avonmeads. 

“Whether you choose our de Lux, reclined auditoria or our great value Classic screens, we truly do have something for everyone to enjoy!”
