ODEON Ayr Cinema Set to Close its Doors Next Month

After decades of entertaining filmgoers, ODEON Ayr announced today that it will be closing its doors on 5th June.

The local cinema, which has been a popular destination for film enthusiasts in the area, cited that the decision to shut down was made after a comprehensive assessment concluded that it was no longer financially viable to operate the establishment.

ODEON management stated that their primary concern during this difficult time is the well-being of their employees. They are committed to finding positions for as many team members as possible at other local ODEON cinemas, hoping to minimise the impact of the closure on their staff.

The cinema has been a fixture in the area for many years, providing entertainment and a place to escape for countless patrons. With the announcement of its impending closure, many residents will now need to travel to neighbouring locations like ODEON Kilmarnock or Glasgow to enjoy the magic of the big screen.

ODEON Ayr expressed its gratitude to loyal customers for their support and patronage over the years.

They encourage filmgoers to continue visiting other ODEON locations to experience the magic of cinema. Up until its closure on 5th June, ODEON Ayr will continue to offer a variety of films, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Evil Dead Rise.

Although the closure of ODEON Ayr is a significant loss for the community, the company hopes that patrons will continue to seek out their brand for their movie-watching experiences.

A spokesperson for ODEON said: “We can confirm that we have made the difficult decision to close our Ayr cinema following a thorough assessment of all available options. We would like to apologise to our guests for any inconvenience this will cause.


"Supporting the ODEON Ayr team is our number one priority, and we would like to thank our colleagues for all their incredible work over the years at the cinema. We will be looking to secure jobs for as many of them as possible in our other local cinemas.”
