Mt Ommaney Centre To Get its Own Cinema; Identity of Operator Still “Top-Secret”

The Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre isn’t new to major extensions. Since it opened in 1979, the mall had undergone major changes such as the 2008 17,700 square metre extension. This time around, it gets a little bit mysterious as it preps for another expansion.

Here is what we know so far. The new entertainment and dining area for the shopping centre has been recently approved by the Brisbane City Council. This new area will be located the south-west part of the centre. It took only a few months for the proposal to be approved. The proposal for the expansion was just submitted in December 2016, laying out plans for a new multiplex cinema, new restaurant, and indoor sport and recreation facilities.

The operator of the new cinema is being kept under wraps. According to the planning chairman of BCC, Julian Simmons, the operator remains “top secret.” The new cinema will be situated across two levels near the Kmart end of the centre.

The proposal shows development would be in two stages:

Stage 1. Construction of roof deck car park to accommodate the expansion
Stage 2. Construction of cinema, restaurant, entertainment tenancy, and parking.

The new entertainment area will revitalise the suburb, providing more entertainment options for the residents of the area.
