So It’s now official Vue has acquired Apollo Cinemas for the massive some of £20m, meaning that Vue will now have 85 cinemas across the country. The news spread across several newspaper websites such as The Financial Times, The Independent to name but a few the other day.
Vue Acquires Apollo Cinemas For £20m
Apollo Cinemas is smaller than some of the bigger cinemas franchises such as Odeon, Cineworld and Vue. Apollo Cinemas are also equipped with State of the art Sony 4K digital projection, 3D and some amazing Dolby Digital 7.1 surround systems.
Simon Gregg From Apollo Cinemas said: “I believe that the sale of my late mother’s company to Vue will place the circuit in good hands. We are very proud of what we have achieved and wish all our employees even more success in the future. Being part of Vue allows them new opportunities to progress their careers with the UK’s leading cinema company.”
The Future Of This Humbler Film Reviewer!
The questions that crosses my mind now is what happens to the Apollo Rhyl Film Reviewer, well hopefully nothing, I’ll still be reviewing films at the cinema, but with the change I may be known as the Vue Rhyl Film Reviewer.
The other down side is my reviewing gear, in time the Blazing Minds Film Reviewer sweatshirt and T-Shirt that I wear when reviewing the films will be obsolete, but with a little bit of hope and the kindness of Vue, they will allow me to use the Vue logo just like the Apollo Cinemas kindly did.
Suffice to say, my reviewing of the latest releases will not stop and I’ll still be supporting my local cinema in Rhyl and promoting the films to you all and giving you my honest and down to earth opinions on them as I have always done.
So as I mentioned earlier, hopefully @VueCinemas will allow me to continuing promoting the cinema with a logo on my back for the cinema and I also hope that they enjoy my earlier and upcoming film reviews as much as you, the loyal readers of my blog, do.
I do hope that Vue get in touch with me via this blog post and allow me to enjoy the film promotion that I’m doing for the Cinema.
