Cineworld Cinema - The Beacon

In Eastbourne, East Sussex, the Arndale Centre had been the main shopping destination since the 1980’s.

However, on Friday 30th November 2018, a new £85m extension opened, and the whole centre was re-named The Beacon. The extension brought with it 22 new shops, seven new restaurants – and the inevitable multiplex.

The Cineworld opened on 12th July 2019, just in time for the release of Disney’s summer blockbuster “The Lion King”. Seating capacities are: Screen 1:238, 2:325, 3:255, 4:61, 5:33, 6:155, 7:132 and 8:239. Unusually, these are all ‘conventional’ screens (albeit Screen 6 is equipped for 3D) with, for example, none of the circuit’s specialised Screen X or 4DX screens included.

To accommodate their new cinema, Cineworld closed their ageing (August 1990) multiplex at nearby Sovereign Harbour Retail Park (see separate Cinema Treasures entry) the same day.
