Since opening its doors over 10 years ago, ODEON Limerick moviegoers have enjoyed a great selection of tasty treats, drinks and popcorn. ODEON Limerick has a dedicated Costa coffee shop where amongst the myriad of coffee choices the Cappuccino reigns supreme with ODEON Limerick moviegoers.
When it comes to the sweet corner, Cola bottles and Fizzy Dummies have been the sweet treats of choice.  With over ten Ben & Jerry flavors available at ODEON Limerick, Choc Fudge Brownie and Smores have been deemed the most popular flavors. 
Over the last ten years the most popular film in ODEON Limerick has been James Cameron’s Avatar followed closely by The Dark Knight and Skyfall . In ODEON cinemas across the country the most popular film to date this year has been 50 Shades of Grey starring Irish hunk Jamie Dornan however, ODEON Limerick bucks this trend with the most popular film this year being Fast and Furious 7, starring the late Paul Walker. With Jurassic World and Star Wars the Force Awakens’ due for release later this year it anyone’s guess what the most watched movie of 2015 will be. 
ODEON Cinemas Brand Manager Douglas Brennan has said ‘ It is hard to believe that ODEON Limerick is already ten. The people of Limerick have truly embraced ODEON cinema over the last ten years and we are grateful for their support’. 
Three ODEON Limerick staff members Joey Taylor, Ferdinand Y Cruz and Martin Kirby have worked in the cinema since it opened its doors a decade ago. 
Ferdinand Y Cruz has said that ‘ Every time John, Martin and I are on duty we are called the three musketeers. There is a great atmosphere in ODEON Limerick and I have truly enjoyed working there for the last ten years’.
Joey Taylor added ‘ The staff are great fun to be around, everyone is so friendly and are great to work with. We work hard but also have a good time, I think that this balance is extremely important and is one of the reasons why ODEON Limerick has been so successful over the last ten years’.
