The roots of the Hollywood Megaplex date back to the year 1959 when the trend-setting Metropol cinema in Innsbruck, which already set new standards at that time, was opened by Ingrid Hueber’s father, Ferdinand Purner. In 1995, Mag. Heinz and Ingrid Hueber built the Hollywood Megaplex in Linz-Pasching. From 1997, the family company expanded to St. Pölten and Vienna. Hollywood Megaplex was the first cinema in Austria to bring 3D to the screens and conquered the mobile market in 2011 by launching a cinema app for iOS and Android. In 2016, Hollywood Megaplex held a market share of 11 percent in Austria and has counted more than 38 million cinemagoers throughout Austria since 1995.
