The new Odeon cinema in Wester Hailes

Odeon shut its Wester Hailes cinema during the summer in order for refurbishment works to take place. The cinema is set to reopen next month boasting 800 handmade reclining seats across eight screens.

Film fans will also be able to experience a new state-of-the-art iSense screen with 4K projection and Dolby ATMOs sound.

The newly renamed Odeon Luxe Edinburgh West will offer customers triple the original legroom and increased personal space - as well as retractable tray tables and a range of new food and drink options.
