Cineworld Group plc was founded in 1995 and is now one of the leading cinema groups in Europe.

They currently operate in the UK, Ireland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Israel and the US and have 790 sites, 9,518 screens and 30,000 employees.

Cineworld recently completed an extension to Cineworld O2, now the largest cinema complex in London. The extension increases the venue from 11 to 19 screens and opened to the public on 16 April in time for the release of Marvel's Avengers: Endgame.

Chapman Taylor delivered the extension fit-out, which increased the number of screens, added a 4DX motion-seat and special effects theatre, four standard cinema theatres and three VIP cinemas with reclining seats and access to a private VIP lounge. Cineworld O2 now has a capacity of 4,500 seats.

Cineworld chose to install the Verona Zero Wall in their three new VIP screens. An electric recliner specifically designed for theatres where capacity and comfort are equally important, the backrest of the Verona 'Zero Wall' reclines into the space vacated by the seat moving forward.


Individual seats were installed and include optional features such as a swivel table for concessions.

Cineworld commented: "Ferco's Reclining Seating offers a premium experience, allowing our customers to reach new levels of luxury and comfort. Our customers are able to relax in style, in the extremely generous sized leather seats, and walk away after a screening knowing they have truly experienced ViP."
