Mexican cinema operator Cinépolis will open a new movie theatre in Sohar, Oman on Thursday, its second in the Gulf region.

The company revealed it plans to open two more cinemas in Oman by the end of this year as part of further expansion across the region.

Cinépolis’ newest cinema will open with a screening of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Aladdin’ with regular screenings of Bollywood and global hit movies taking place each day.

Located in the Landmark Group’s Oasis Mall, Sohar, the Cinépolis cinema will feature eight screens including the first Junior theatre in Oman which features a Jungle Gym, complete with slide and ball pit, as well as 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.

Elsewhere, guests can relax with three seating options Recliner, Deluxe or Premium, with rocking or fully reclining leather chairs available.

The Sohar opening comes five months after Cinépolis, the fourth largest operator in the world, made its debut in the GCC with the launch at the Atrium Mall, Saar, Bahrain.

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

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.”
