Cinépolis Cinemas, the third largest cinema exhibitor in the world, opened its first luxury theatre in Muscat at Oman Avenues Mall on Thursday. This is the third one to be opened in the sultanate.
Cinépolis Cinemas offers options for all guests, including four luxury screens, a junior screen, 4D E-motion screen, Macro XE screen and seven premium format screens.
Ashish Shukla, CEO of Cinépolis Gulf, said, “Cinepolis is bringing to Oman its globally recognised experiences. We know how much the community in Muscat loves movies, and we are relishing the opportunity to present a wonderful cinema experience that can be enjoyed by all. The launch of the first luxury offering for Cinépolis Cinemas in Oman is a milestone for the brand and we are honoured to bring our world-class offering to Muscat.”
Shukla added, “Film fans in Muscat 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 at a great affordable price point starting at RO3. We thank the Lulu group for giving us this wonderful opportunity and we look forward to expanding our partnership with them across the various geographies we work in together.”
The luxury offering from Cinépolis Cinemas will offer movie-goers access to four luxurious screens, which will include 180-degree leather reclining seats with personal amenities, Maitre d’ call buttons and adjustable tables.
The luxury menu, which will be served to your seat via on-demand butler service, features a variety of delicious starters including prawns osmallieh, fish tacos, loaded tacos and loaded fries. Main dishes include the signature Wagyu burger, falafel wraps, sliders, pan-seared ribeye steak, Omani lobster roll and prawn bow-tie pasta.
A lamb kebab platter is also available for those looking for sharing options, as well salads for those looking for a lighter dish. A selection of delectable Arabic-inspired desserts also feature on the menu, including milk cake and cardamom cheesecake. A selection of soft drinks and mocktails will also be on offer.
The Muscat theatre will also feature a junior screen. Cinépolis Cinemas’ Junior screens have been a huge hit with parents and youngsters in the Middle East, and have been designed to allow families to enjoy their favourite movies in a welcoming and fun space that expertly caters to their needs. The junior screen features a colourful jungle gym, complete with slide and ball pit, as well as fun bean-bag seating.
Another cinematic experience that catapults Cinépolis Cinemas ahead of the competition is the state-of-the-art 4D E-motion experience. The immersive theatre format allows cinema lovers to ‘live’ the movie thanks to motion seats and outstanding special effects such as wind, water, seat vibration, smell and air shots all perfectly synchronised with the action on the screen.
The cinema will also boast one Macro XE auditorium, complete with Dolby Atmos surround 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.
The deluxe or premium seat options all enjoy an uninterrupted view of the screen with rocking leather chairs available.
