Opened on the 1st May 1998 as the 11 screen Virgin Megaplex Ipswich. It featured 3 THX certified screens! Screen 11 was called the Premiere screen which cost orginally £10 a tickets, for which you where given free popcorn and snacks and there was a bar in the entrance to the screen and you could take your drinks into the screen. The seats reclined and between each pair of seats was a table.

All screens have stadium seating and digital sound (Dolby Digital in all 11 and DTS in some). The largest screen seats 510 and the smallest screen seats 72 people.

The cinema was taken over by UGC who did not bother to keep the THX certification or high standards of projection set by Virgin.

The cinema is now run by Cineworld. The old premiere screen is now just screen 11 and has new seating installed. One of the smallest screens now has digital DLP projection and RealD 3D projection.

Screen 6 (largest, 510 seats) now has a digital projector. Stunning pictures on a very large screen.

in facts the 3 biggest screens (6, 8 & 4) now have digital projection in 2D and 3D. Saw star trek in digital on largest screen looked amazing and sounded great.

The largest screen has now been converted to IMAX digital. All screens are now digital with Screen 8 (largest non-IMAX screen) able to show HFR content.
