The 8 cinema Odeon "luxe" multiplex is situated on the Edinburgh outskirts in Wester Hailes, adjacent to the Westside Plaza shopping centre.
Formerly Odeon Wester Hailes and before that the ABC, the 8-cinema multiplex re-opened as Odeon Luxe Edinburgh West following extensive refurbishment of the 8 cinemas. In particular, 800 more spacious, recliner seats were installed in the 8 cinemas. All cinemas also have RealD 3D, new speakers, and upgraded sound system.
The multiplex also has a 178-seat iSense screen with 4K projection and Dolby ATMOS sound in Cinema 1. Odeon declared, when opened in November 2017, it was "the largest fully-reclining iSense screen in Europe".
The cinema was the second Odeon in Scotland to get the Luxe makeover. The Luxe upgrades reflect an increasing trend among cinema chains to make the theatrical experience more comfortable and an attractive alternative to streaming movies to the big-screen entertainment system that many people now have at home.
The number of seats in the multiplex were reduced from the previous 2,117 seats to 800 handmade, recliner seats, each of which has its own tray.
A total of 160 brand new speakers were installed across all auditoriums, with all standard screens also upgrading to Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound and 63 multi-channel amplifiers.
Enlarged screens were added across all auditoriums with improved lighting aimed at enhancing the cinema experience.
