In the Beekstraat a new SPACE Cinema opened end December 2003.
During 2004 it has been sold and called UTOPOLIS from that date.
There are 4 halls, all equiped with stage seating and XXXL screens combined with Dolby Digital Surround EX & DTS sound systems.
The main hall has High Definition TV too, to relay pop-concerts, spors or other events and shows.
Well, cinema's are not profitable anymore. In the neighbouring Enschede the last traditional cinema closed and UTOPOLIS turned out to be an utopia.; it closed in September 2006.
