As part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, the Kingdom has announced the addition of six more cinemas over the course of the next two years, taking the total number of entertainment screens up to 63 by 2021.

“We are proud to be contributing to the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 as it goes through this historic period of transformation and hope to provide movie-goers with unrivalled experiences as Saudi Arabia increases its culture and entertainment offering,” said a spokesperson for Cinépolis Gulf.

The new openings will be located in Lulu Mall in Dammam (opening in 2020), Al Hokair Time in Jazan, Obhour Mall in Jeddah, Cordoba Mall in Riyadh, Najran City Center and Al Massarh Mall (opening in 2021), and will see three different type of experiences on offer. Junior invites little ones and families to enjoy their favourite flicks within a fun space that features Jungle Gym, complete with slide and ball pit, as well as fun bean-bag seating; Macro XE auditoriums boast screens that are triple the size of an ordinary cinema screen; and Luxury auditoriums will see super relaxing leather reclining seats, Maitre d’ call buttons and everything else you’d expect from a five-star experience.

The announcement comes as part of Saudi’s Quality of Life Program’s wider $35 million (130 billion SAR) goal to open 45 cinemas by 2020. Saudi lifted the 35-year ban on cinemas in December 2017, and went on to open their first cinema in April 2018, where they played blockbuster action flick Black Panther.
