ACE HOYTS Midland Gate Cinemas Now Open


Following the announcement of the joint venture between ACE Cinemas and HOYTS in August, ACE HOYTS Midland Gate is now open. This partnership brings together two exceptional exhibitors who have teamed up to continue providing the local community with access to big screen cinema experiences.

Officially opening today, Thursday October 5, ACE HOYTS is looking forward to welcoming customers both existing and new into its doors with a goal of enhancing the movie-going experience that guests know and love. Guests can also look forward to a full refurbishment in February 2024, with plans to bring HOYTS’ signature extra comfy recliners and immersive D-BOX Motion Recliner haptic technology to the cinema.

President and CEO of The HOYTS Group Damian Keogh expressed his enthusiasm on working with the ACE team to elevate the cinema experience at Midland Gate.

“At HOYTS, our big picture mindset is all about elevating the cinema experience and continuing to innovate to provide the best possible experience for guests,” said Keogh.

“With the introduction of D-BOX and our recliners scheduled in the Midland Gate refurbishment next year, we are pleased to offer the supreme comfort and ‘more than just a movie’ feeling that guests are seeking.”

Managing Director of ACE Cinemas David Pye says, “Our commitment to providing exceptional customer experiences to the local community will continue to be at the forefront. We know that this partnership will allow us to continue doing exactly that.”

Guests will recognise a few changes in-cinema, with the introduction of HOYTS branded cinema experiences including Xtremescreen boasting the largest auditorium with big screens and spectacular sound, and HOYTS LUX with a delicious new menu for in-cinema dining.
