Ashish Shukla, CEO of Cinépolis Gulf, stated that the company will announce a third launch in Oman next month with a new megaplex in Avenues Mall, Muscat.
Cinépolis Gulf will open its third theatre in the GCC on September 5 in Salalah, the capital city of southern Oman’s Dhofar province, following its launch in Bahrain eight months ago and another in Sohar, Oman in May 2019.
The Salalah multiplex will open with a screening of “IT: Chapter 2” and will have regular screenings of Hollywood, Arabic, Bollywood and other regional movies. Located in Landmark Group’s Oasis Mall, the new Cinépolis Cinema will feature eight screen that include its large screen format, Macro with Dolby Atmos surround sound and the family approved, Junior auditorium.
Speaking about the launch, Ashish Shukla, CEO of Cinépolis Gulf, said: “We are thrilled to announce the opening of the second Cinépolis movie theatre in Oman. The new theatre in Salalah is an important part of our ongoing strategy to establish Cinépolis as the number one choice for film fans across Oman and the Gulf region. Cinépolis is proud to serve the Salalah community and looks forward to welcoming film fans and their families to our new premium movie theatre. After Salalah, we open our Megaplex in the Avenues Mall, Muscat next month.”
The Salalah opening comes eight months after Cinépolis made its debut in the Gulf with the launch of its Bahrain movie theatre at the Atrium Mall, Saar. The global chain has also announced six new locations in Saudi Arabia in June and the launch of a multiplex in the second half of 2020 at Meydan, Dubai.
