Midnight at the Omniplex as local cinema plans Marvel triple-bill

By Esther Hayden

A Marvel-ous evening of entertainment is in store at Wexford Omniplex on April 22 with a triple bill screening of the 'Avengers' movies 1 and 2, finishing off with new release 'Avengers 3 - The Age of Ultron'.

'The Age of Ultron' premiers nationwide on April 23 and Wexford will be one of the first cinemas in Ireland to show the film with the screening on the stroke of midnight.

The evening's entertainment starts at 6 p.m. with a screening of 'Avengers Assemble' followed at 8.50 p.m. with 'Captain America 2', and then at midnight with 'The Age of Ultron'.

Assistant manager at Wexford Omniplex Paul Wise said there has already been plenty of interest in the triple screening. He also said that because all three are going to be shown on the new super large Omniplex-Maxx screen it will offer an even more enjoyable experience for local cinema goers.

There will be a short break between each of the films and there is a special price of €15 for all three films on the night. The latest film has a certification of 12A so is suitable for most viewers.

Anyone who wants to book for the Marvel superhero-fest can log onto
