Exeter's new multiplex seven-screen cinema opened on 22nd December 2006. It features the latest digital projection equipment with large screens, stadium seating and an ice cream cafe and licensed bar. The cinema has cost £4.2 million and has seating for 1,073. The films shown at 10am on the first day were March of the Penguins and Night at the Museum.
The cinema had its officiall opening at 5pm on Friday 12th January 2007, with the Lord Mayor in attendance. There have been complaints, with letters to the Express & Echo, on the high price of food and drink at Vue - a can of cola from a machine is £1.80. Return to this page in 25 years and that will seem cheap. The only time I have been to Vue, the projection was sub-standard, with the frame line in the centre of the screen - a patron had to complain before it was rectified. So much for 7 screens and a single projectionist.
