Opened on 21 September 2001, the UGC has made a big impact on the Glasgow cinema scene. At over 12 stories high, and with an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the Worlds Tallest Cinema, the UGC was also the UK's busiest cinema in terms of admissions in 2003.
It seats around 4,300 in total over 18 screens, the largest of which seats 663, the smallest 84. The largest screen is 18.4m x 8.4m (60 feet x 27 feet, 2.2:1 ratio approx.) The screens are all wall to wall and floor to ceiling, with no tabs or masking.
Level 0 - Foyer; Level 1 - Bar; Level 2 - Screens 1 - 3 & 'Party Room'; Level 3 - Screens 4 - 7; Level 4 - Screens 8 -11; Level 5 - Screens 12 - 15; Level 6 - Screen 16 - 18.
UGC was taken over by Cineworld in 2005, and the cinema rebranded at that time.
