The Lounge

Expand all

The Lounge will be a state of the art luxury cinema boasting five intimate screens, each with no more than 50 fully reclining leather seats and extendable leg rests. The cinema will also offer a range of exclusive features and services including an on-site concierge desk offering a dedicated cinema booking and film selection service and a private bar area available for pre-cinema drinks and private functions, featuring highly trained waitress staff. ODEON Whiteleys will also retain four traditional cinema screens which will be on a separate floor to The Lounge. The Lounge is strictly for over 18's only.

We have highly trained waiting staff from restaurant backgrounds to ensure disruption is kept to an absolute minimum. Over and above this, we would encourage all guests to order food and drink during the trailers to ensure it arrives in good time, and to assist us in ensuring a pleasant and quiet environment for other guests. Eating snacks through a film is nothing new and therefore we don't believe that it will detract from the cinema experience in any way.

We will also be accommodating this so you can keep ordering certain items.

The bar is a private area and as such will only be open to guests in possession of a ticket to see a film at The Lounge.

Rowley Leigh is the Consultant Chef at ODEON Whiteleys - he has devised the finger, fork and spoon menu.

Rowley Leigh has categorised the menu into finger, fork and spoon options for ultimate ease when selecting dishes to enjoy screen-side. The finger, fork, spoon concept not only allows guests the opportunity to sample fine food from the comfort of their cinema seat but has also been devised to be enjoyed quietly and with maximum ease. The Lounge's luxury food offerings delivers a selection of exquisite dishes that can be enjoyed with minimum fuss and yet still deliver on the taste and excitement you'd expect from a fine dining establishment.

There isan ambient lighting level within screens that makes suitable for eating without spoiling enjoyment of the film and keep adapting this as we learn what our guests want.

The Lounge payment policy gives guests the option to pay as they place the order or to set up a tab, if they wish to do so, and pay prior to or during the film.  This flexibility allows our guests to decide when they would prefer to pay the bill and interact with the Lounge staff. If a guest chooses to set up a tab and pay during the film a member of staff will present the bill at that time.

Conversely, if a guest does not wish to be disturbed during the film he/she has the option to order and pay for any refreshments prior to the start of the film. The benefit of this flexible approach is that the Lounge can process all payments without any delay to our guests.

The Lounge bar is ideal to relax and enjoy a cocktail or meal before and during the film.

The experience is enhanced if guests arrive 30 minutes before the film and they can fully enjoy our bar area and order their food to be served either in the bar or at their seat. Our 'in screen waiter service’ is available throughout the film so more food and drinks can be ordered at any time.
