Cineworld’s relationship with ‘bruised’ UK landlords in the spotlight as Leicester Square 4DX screen boarded up (exclusive)
Figures within the UK cinema sector have expressed dismay at how UK landlords are being treated by Cineworld as the troubled, debt-laden exhibition giant attempts to restructure.
It emerged this week that one landlord is fighting back. Cineworld’s 4DX extreme cinema screen at its flagship Leicester Square venue has reportedly been boarded up by the landlord. When Screen visited on Monday afternoon, the screen was cordoned off and closed and tickets were not available to be bought. Venue staff referred questions about its closure to Cineworld’s PR company.
The 4DX screen has a different landlord than the rest of the Leicester Square site. Other screens there were open as normal.
Screen has approached Cineworld for comment and clarification.
