New cinema for Navan?
Plans for a 1400 seat nine screen cinema at the Navan Retail Park by the well known Omniplex Holdings cinema chain have been lodged with Meath County Council.
The popular cinema chain is seeking planning permission to carry out remedial works to three existing units in the park to develop a nine screen cinema unit.
A decision on the application is due by 26th February and the development will offer the latest in 4D screen technology.
The application comes two years after An Bord Pleanala turned down planning applications for two separate cinema complexes in the town, one at the Navan Retail Park.
Cllr Shane Cassells welcomed the proposals for the cinema complex.
“The application for a multiplex nine screen cinema in the Retail Park is a really welcome one and something which I hope will result in a top class facility for the people of the town and County Meath,” he said.
“A company willing to build a cinema of this size in the town is another positive indication for Navan and the 4D technology on offer would be something that would be really welcomed.
“Investment coming into the town is extremely welcome and this 1,400 seat cinema would have a massive positive impact on both the retail park and the wider economy of the town.'
