Odeon to anchor £60m Queensgate Leisure extension

16th May 2024 | Jack Oliver

Odeon has been selected to anchor Queensgate Peterborough’s £60m leisure extension, with the operator set to open an eight-screen cinema later this year.

Set to span 27,500 sq ft on Queensgate’s third floor, the complex represents a regional debut for Odeon as it opens its first cinema in Cambridgeshire.

The cinema will look to deliver a fully immersive experience, offering IMAX screens, Dolby audio technology, and over 600 luxury seats.

Odeon will join indoor mini golf brand Puttstars within the brand-new leisure extension, and will also sit alongside a number of retail and food and beverage brands such as H&M, Primark, Office, Tap & Tandoor, and Turtle Bay.

Ed Ginn, director of investment management at scheme owner Invesco Real Estate, said: “The purpose of our new leisure extension has always been to deliver a complete experience for the community of Peterborough, and ODEON Cinemas will be a fantastic component of the space. We have invested a significant amount in ensuring this extension meets visitor expectations and enhances the overall visit to Queensgate, and this new anchor will help drive that day-to-night offer and reinforce the destination’s appeal as a top UK shopping centre.”

This announcement follows the news that Frasers Group will occupy the former John Lewis department store at Queensgate, opening a Frasers and Sports Direct at the centre.

CBRE, Time Retail Partners, and Sovereign Centros from CBRE advised Invesco Real Estate.
