New cinema in the works for Ballinasloe

Galway Daily Arts & culture submissions open for 25th Junior Film Fleadh

Plans have been submitted for the construction of an omniplex cinema in Dunlo, Ballinasloe.

Omniplex Holdings ULC plans to build the five screen cinema on the site next to the Aldi in town.

The application is for a five screen, single-storey omniplex approximately 7.9m high with associated car parking.

The gross floor space of the project would be 1123m².

The owners of the land, Limehill Esker Limited, have an agreement with Omniplex Holdings allowing them to seek planning permission.

Residents of Ballinasloe will know whether they’re getting a new cinema within the month, as a decision is due from Galway County Council by December 19.
