Muscat: Global cinema chain Cinepolis will open its first theatre in Muscat at Oman Avenues Mall in Muscat, the company has announced.
Cinepolis’ theatre in Muscat will be opened just a few weeks after they opened their Salalah cinema, their first theatre in the country.
Ashish Shukla, CEO of Cinépolis Gulf, said: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of the second Cinépolis movie theatre in Oman. The new theatre in Salalah is an important part of our ongoing strategy to establish Cinépolis as the number one choice for film fans across Oman and the Gulf region.
He added: “Cinépolis is proud to serve the Salalah community and looks forward to welcoming film fans and their families to our new premium movie theatre. After Salalah we open our Megaplex in the Avenues Mall, Muscat next month.”
Featuring Oman’s second Junior Auditorium, 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 parents and youngsters needs. The junior theatre features a colourful jungle gym, complete with slide and ball pits, as well as fun bean bag seating.
Every screening shown in the junior auditorium will 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 auditorium. The theatre also boasts one macro screen that is complete with Dolby Atmos surround sound that creates a powerful audio experience.
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. Visitors will be able to enjoy a premium range of delicious movie treats including caramel popcorn and nachos or opt for an espresso drink expertly 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 desserts. The Salalah opening comes eight months after Cinépolis, Latin America’s largest cinema exhibitor and the third largest in the world, made its debut in the Gulf with the launch of its Bahrain movie theatre at the Atrium Mall, Saar. The global chain also announced six new locations in Saudi Arabia in June.
Cinepolis will have regular screenings of Hollywood, Arabic, Bollywood and local hit movies taking place each day. A movie will start every 20 minutes throughout the day to be sure and give multiple showtime options to their guests. Conveniently located in Salalah’s Oasis Mall, the new Cinépolis cinema will feature an impressive eight state-of-the-art screens that includes their large screen format, Macro with Dolby Atmos surround sound and the family approved junior auditorium.
