Revamped cinema open this month

Reading is opening its Dunedin cinema on July 24 after an extensive revamp of the former Hoyts cinema in the Octagon.

The cinema's grand opening will come almost a year after Hoyts closed, leaving Dunedin with only one major cinema.

In announcing the opening date online, Reading said its new cinema would include four traditional screens and two dine-in ''premium screens'' featuring ''plush wide-body seats''.

The cinema would be fully licensed and sell hot food.

Reading Entertainment managing director Wayne Smith, of Melbourne, previously said the revamping of the former Hoyts site was a ''multimillion-dollar'' project.
