Glasgow’s St. Enoch Centre has announced VUE Cinemas as part of a new multi-million development.
The leading shopping centre is creating an entertainment and dining destination in the heart of the city and in addition to the cinema, eight new restaurants will open, supporting Glasgow’s diverse culinary offering. The new restaurants will complement the centre’s popular food court and dining mix which includes DiMaggio’s, Pizza Hut, Nandos, Kimbles, Ddoce and Ed’s Easy Diner.
The new nine screen cinema will be located on the upper level of the former BHS site at the east end of the centre with additional retailing on the ground floor that will reinforce the centre’s position as a top shopping destination.
Anne Ledgerwood, General Manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “Retail has changed considerably in recent years and people are increasingly seeking to incorporate eating and entertainment into their shopping experience.
“Glasgow is justifiably proud of its reputation as the leading shopping destination outside London and the addition of a cinema will allow us to continue to develop St. Enoch Centre and offer a first class experience for shoppers and visitors to the city.
“The development will also help to create a more connected city centre by reclaiming outdoor space for pedestrians as well as strengthening the connection with Buchanan Street and improving links to the waterfront.”
The new leisure facilities will be accessible from enhanced entrances on Dunlop Street and Osbourne Street which would strengthen the link into Argyle Street and improve the overall pedestrian experience in the area and increase activity while maintaining essential highways access.
The new development will open to trade in Summer 2019.
