Independent Cinema, Digital Gallery & Cafe Bar
Set in the heart of Leicester's Cultural Quarter, Phoenix Square is a cinema, digital arts centre and cafe bar.
Phoenix Square shows a broad cross-section of the best in world and independent cinema in its two state-of -the-art, and very comfy, screens.
Our movie screens have the highest specification technology , the XpanD 3D screens will not be bettered in Leicester and will provide an unmissable sensory film experience.
We have developed a unique and important partnership with Leicester’s De Montfort University which enables us to present the most exciting and progressive developments in art and technology in the DMU Cube, a purpose-built exhibition space.
Our digital production facilities include a TV studio, editing rooms and sound and graphic suites. These state-of-the art production spaces are designed to accommodate small scale production needs and service a variety of film and broadcast projects at a competitive rate.
Our Cafe Bar, the 'Screen Lounge' offers a wide range of enticing food and drink together with the unique opportunity to experience digital media presentations in a stylish and contemporary environment. With WiFi technology, the Screen Lounge is a fantastic place for lunch, meetings, or to enjoy a few drinks with friends.
Phoenix Square is not just a film and media venue, we are a lively social hub and a relaxed working environment, that lives and breathes with its customers.
Xpand 3D is the best three dimensional cinema projection system in the world and the only system of its kind in Leicester. Perfectly complimenting the scope and vision of Phoenix Square, this astonishing process makes cinema imaging better, brighter, and pin-sharp regardless of where you’re sitting. Goodbye blurred vision at the end of each row!
The heart of the technology lies within the stylish modular Xpand 3D glasses which are self-contained, intelligent viewing portals that actively detect an infrared signal from within each cinema that synchronises the glasses with the 3D movie being shown. Durable and robust Xpand 3D has, at 17%, the highest light efficiency of any 3D system on the planet and is the only process that has absolutely no ghosting.
Capable of being worn over a customer’s own spectacles the lenses are optimized for viewing large or small screen projections and use eco-friendly diodes that maximise the life of each pair of X101 Series glasses. The only thing we ask though is that each movie-goer hands back each set of glasses after the film so that we can clean them and hand them out again for our next show (There’s an anti-theft device built into every pair as well just in case you can’t bear to be parted from them!)
