Cinépolis opens in Sohar with 8 screens

Muscat - 

Cinépolis opened a new movie theatre in Sohar last week. The cinema chain plans to open two more cinemas in Oman this year as part of its long-term plans to further expand across the region.

Conveniently located in the newly opened Landmark Group’s Oasis Mall, Sohar, Cinépolis cinema will feature eight impressive state-of-the-art screens. It will also feature the first-ever Junior Theatre of Oman.

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 in the Junior Theatre will be split to include a 15-minute intermission to allow children to take breaks, enjoy snacks or play. 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, making its debut in the GCC with the launch of its Bahrain movie theatre at the Atrium Mall, Saar.

Founded in Mexico in 1971, Cinépolis is a global cinematic powerhouse that boasts over 1.1mn seats worldwide. The company’s new Oman location will increase its international reach to 17 countries.

Cinépolis’ new Oasis Mall movie theatre is perfectly placed to best serve movie fans in Sohar city itself and from surrounding areas with the latest films from Hollywood, Bollywood and across the region. 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 look forward to welcoming film fans and their families to our new premium movie theatre.”
