New cinema and renovations at Field’s shopping mall

Amager shopping centre spending big to boost turnover

The Field’s shopping centre in the Ørestad area of Amager will open a nine-screen multiplex cinema on Thursday and is underway with a multi-million kroner renovation project.

Lotte Eiskjær Andersen, the head of the centre, told Berlingske Business that the movie house is expected to boost the complex’s other activities.

“We expect that the cinema will sell more than 500,000 tickets annually,” she said. “That will create extra turnover in our shops and especially our restaurants.”

Part of the facility will be rented to the nearby Ørestad Gymnasium for media studies teaching.

Facelift to follow
The renovation work will focus on the part of the centre housing its eateries.

“Wear and tear occurs over the course of 11 years,” she said.

“We are getting new floors, new ceilings and new lamps, and there will be more wood and plants to create a warm and cosy atmosphere.”
