History[edit]

Cineplexx Kinobetriebe GmbH was founded in 1993 as a joint venture between Constantin Film-Holding GmbH and Vienna's own cinema and event companies (KIBA / Wiener Stadthalle and Wiener Holding AG). The city of Vienna withdrew and sold its shares to Constantin Film-Holding GmbH in spring 1999. Constantin Film-Holding GmbH and Cineplexx Kinobetriebe GmbH are wholly owned by the Langhammer family.

The first Cineplexx cinema was opened on October 31, 1996 in Graz. It was after the Apollo Cinema reopened in December 1993 by Cineinvest, a subsidiary of Constantin Film Holding and Kiba. The largest Cineplexx which was built in November 1999 on the Danube plate, in Reichsbrücke, included 13 halls and 3,400 seats, was closed in 2011.

In March 2001 Cineplexx bought from Loews a cinema in Auhof and in December 2002 the cinema in the Vienna Twin Tower from the German Cinestar. In 2004, Constantin Film Group also took over the multiplex cinema in the Donauzentrum, the Donauplex.

Since 2009 Cineplexx has expanded in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.

On May 12, 2009, the first Cineplexx cinema outside Austria was opened in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy with 7 screens.

In January 2019, Cineplexx bought the three cinemas of the UCI chain in Austria from Odeon.[1]

Cineplexx has expanded in Romania in april 2019 after bought one of the largest multiplexes in Bucharest, Grand Cinema, keeping the brand. Three months later has bought Cine Gold multiplex, also in Bucharest and rebranded it as Cineplexx.[2] In september 2019 a multiplex was opened in Satu Mare.[3] Cineplexx continues to expand with a multiplex in Sibiu in March 2020 and others planned in Târgu Mureș,[4] Craiova and Iași.

A Cineplexx multiplex with eight cinema halls totaling 1,400 seats is currently under construction in Sarajevo and will be opened in summer 2020.[5]

Facilities[edit]

The multiplex offers in selected locations cinema halls equipped with laser 4K projectors, HFR, IMAX, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Cinema.

Since 2017 the company opened first halls with motion-base cinema concept MX4D in Split, Novi Sad, Belgrade and Graz. Likewise, a VR concept was launched in Graz and Novi Sad on a trial basis. Also Samsung's Onyx concept, the first Cinema LED system to replace the classic projection was installed in Wienerberg.[6]
