Cinema chain Vue Entertainment’s multiplex cinema in Westfield Stratford City - dubbed the gateway to the Olympic site - is to open on Tuesday 13 September.

The new cinema offers 17 screens, each with Sony 4K projection. The site also boasts two super-sized VueXtreme screens, which are 18x10 metres in size and seat up to 500 people - the biggest screens in London save for the BFI IMAX, which measures 26x20 metres.

There will be five screens equipped with Incre3Dible Vue Digital 3D (Real D 3D) and 14 screens offering Vue Profound Sound (Dolby 7:1). 

Tim Richards, CEO of Vue Entertainment, explained: “Vue Westfield Stratford City will set new standards with a stunning state-of-the-art cinema set in a wonderful location and the installation of Sony 4K digital cinema projectors will form part of the potential roll out of Sony’s amazing new projection technology systems across all Vue cinemas over the next couple of years.”

The cinema is the newest addition to Stratford’s Westfield centre, the largest shopping centre in Europe, and follows the rollout of Vue’s Westfield multiplex in Shepherd’s Bush.
