Vue to acquire Showtime cinema circuit in Ireland

London, 20 June 2018: Vue Entertainment, part of Vue International, has acquired the two-site cinema circuit Showtime Cinemas in Ireland, with one site located in Ashbourne and the other located in Limerick.

Vue International, one of the world’s leading cinema operators with 1,904 screens across ten countries, today announces results for the three months to 28 February 2018, showing a good performance across the diverse portfolio, with significant progress in our international expansion, and announcing a five-year record for UK admissions.

Vue International, one of the world’s leading cinema operators with 1,902 screens across ten countries, today announces results for the three months to 30 November 2017, showing a solid performance across a diverse portfolio and record turnover for the full year.

It is not our intention to censor content.  In some instances, where we feel that an activity and its associated campaign and content are in direct contradiction with Vue’s values, we make the decision to refrain from allowing that activity to take place in our cinemas.

Vue West End received the coveted Cinema of the Year Award five months after re-opening following its £6.6m redevelopment. The Screen Awards unveiled its 2017 winners on the 30th November with an event celebrating excellence in UK marketing, distribution and exhibition in the past 12 months.
