At a press conference at the new CinéBelval multiplex cinema in BelvalPlaza1 in Esch-Belval this afternoon, journalists were assured that everything would be alright on the night. The finishing touches were being applied to the seven screening rooms and the various spaces outside, in advance of Thursday’s official opening.

The seven cinema multiplex is being operated by Carabma who already operate the Ariston, Kinosch, Le Paris and Kursaal cinemas, but this is a new venture altogether. Boasting the largest screening room in the Benelux (540 person capacity) and the widest screen in the Benelux (22 metres wide), Salle 1 is something special. When walking into it for the first time, one gets the impression that it is theatre, not a cinema, until the curtain is pulled back to reveal the impressive screen. The other screening rooms have space for 220 (2 rooms) and 128 places (4 rooms).



Most films are being screend in their original language, sub-titled. Online ordering of tickets is possible via www.caramba.lu, with ticket prices at 8.50 euros (and 5.50 reduced tariff), with a new concept loyalty card (CINE CARD) in operation as an incentive, as well as well-presented Ticket Vouchers on sale as present ideas.

The complex construction resulted in delays which meant that it is a little behind schedule in opening, but this will change oin Thursday when it opens its doors for the first time for a ticket-only screening of Nicole Kidman’s and Hugh Jackman’s acclaimed “Australia”, compared to a cross between “Gone with the Wind” and “Out of Africa”. It then opens its doors to the public on Friday.

Three of the seven screening rooms are equipped with 3D technology, with all screening in HD. All have facilities for those in wheelchairs and with reduced mobility. The seats are compared to those in buisness class on long-haul aircraft, with 15 cm more legroom than is other cinemas in the region. Double-occupation “loveseats” are also available in all seven screenign rooms. 

Access is by the A4 motorway with free underground car parking; by train to the Belval-University stop, or by bus from Esch-sur-Alzette.

While the restaurant facilities are not open until the new year (Jan/Feb), there are many opportunities to eat and drink at many other cafes, etc., in the shopping centre.
