The capacity in cinema auditoriums has also been reduced by 50% in accordance with government guidelines.
Majid Al Futtaim has announced that Vox Cinemas, Vox Cineco and Magic Planet will reopen for Eid al-Fitr in compliance with government guidelines. In adherence with the Ministry of Health, guests who are 18 years or older must be vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 and present a green shield on the ‘BeAware Bahrain’ app to gain entry and individuals below the age of 12 must be accompanied by a vaccinated or recovered adult.
Majid Al Futtaim’s entertainment destinations have undertaken precautionary measures and put in place an all-encompassing sanitisation and physical distancing plan.
Safe distancing ambassadors have been introduced and instructional signage has been installed to guide guests on physical distancing practices. Guests are encouraged to have a queue-less experience by booking their tickets in advance and doing top-ups online. To further minimise physical contact and exposure, contactless payment options are available. The capacity in cinema auditoriums has also been reduced by 50% in accordance with government guidelines and seats next to, in front of and behind a guest’s selection will be left vacant to allow for physical distancing.
Mohamad Halloum, Regional Manager, Bahrain, Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas and Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment said: “We’re thrilled to be reopening our doors and welcoming back our guests this holiday weekend so we can start creating great moments together again. Guests can rest assured that we have gone above and beyond the recommended guidelines, designing an extensive range of new measures to ensure a healthy, safe and comfortable experience for everyone.”
Vox Cinemas, Vox Cineco and Magic Planet have stringent health and safety measures in place and are exceeding recommended guidelines. It is also now mandatory for employees and guests to wear face masks and have their temperatures checked upon entry.
