Cinépolis, a leading global cinema chain, is continuing to move ahead with ambitious expansion plans across the Middle East with the opening of a new movie theatre in Sohar, Oman.
Cinépolis’ second GCC theatre will welcome film lovers from Sohar, the capital city of Al Batinah North Governate, and surrounding areas from May 23.
Located in the newly opened Landmark Group’s Oasis Mall, Sohar, the Cinépolis cinema will feature an impressive eight state-of-the-art screens.
The first Junior theatre of Oman is set to be a huge hit with parents and youngsters. The one-of-a-kind cinema has been designed to allow families to enjoy their favourite movies in a welcoming and fun space that expertly caters to their needs. The Junior Theatre features a colourful Jungle Gym, complete with slide and ball pit, as well as fun bean bag seating. Every screening shown in the Junior Theatre will be split to include a 15-minute intermission to allow restless children to take a break, enjoy some snacks or play a while. Only films rated G or PG will be shown in the Junior Theatre.
The theatre also boasts one Macro screen complete with Dolby Atmos sound that creates a powerful audio experience thanks to the high-tech combination of the latest generation of audio speakers located throughout each of the venue’s premium auditoriums.
Guests can relax with three super-comfortable seating options - Recliner, Deluxe or Premium, all with an uninterrupted view of the screen with rocking or fully reclining leather chairs available.
The Sohar opening comes five months after Cinépolis, Latin America’s largest cinema exhibitor and the fourth largest in the world, made its debut in the GCC with the launch of its Bahrain movie theatre at the Atrium Mall, Saar.
Founded in Mexico in 1971, Cinépolis boasts over 1.1 million seats worldwide. The company’s new Oman location will increase its international reach to 17 countries.
Cinépolis plans to open two more cinemas in Oman this year as part of long-term plans to further expand across the region.
Visitors to Cinépolis’ Sohar cinema will be able to enjoy a premium range of delicious movie treats including buttered popcorn and nachos or opt for a hot drink prepared by in-house baristas at the specialty coffee shop, ‘Coffee Tree’. A full menu of gourmet snack items and concessions is also available to movie-goers, including paninis, sandwiches, crêpes and high-quality coffee drinks.
Ashish Shukla, CEO of Cinépolis Gulf, said: “The launch of the first Cinépolis movie theatre in the Sultanate of Oman is an important part of our ongoing strategy to establish Cinépolis as the number one choice for film fans across the GCC."
“Movie-lovers in Sohar are invited to discover the very best cinema experience in our brand-new, state-of-the-art theatre that merges fantastic audio and visual technology with wonderful food, comfort and hospitality."
“Cinépolis is proud to serve the Sohar community and we look forward to welcoming film fans and their families to our new premium movie theatre,” he said. - TradeArabia News Service
