The 15-screen multiplex also features advanced audio-visual technology and a variety of Vox Cinemas’ signature concepts including KIDS, a colourful and dedicated auditorium for young movie lovers, MAX, an auditorium with a mega screen and Dolby Atmos surround sound technology as well as a reimagined VIP experience with luxury seating and in-seat dining.
A wide variety of the latest video games, amusement rides, attractions and redemption games is available at Magic Planet, which features Bumper Cars, Drop ‘N Twist and Highway 66.
Speaking about the new launch, Ignace Lahoud, Chief Executive Officer of Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas and Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment said: “We’re proud to collaborate with Wafi Group, which shares our vision for creating remarkable destinations and passion for excellence, to open our first hybrid cinema and family entertainment centre in the United Arab Emirates. Today’s customers are looking for more engaging and immersive ways to spend time with family and friends and, at Majid Al Futtaim, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve and finding innovative new ways to exceed evolving expectations. Vox Cinemas and Magic Planet at Wafi City have been designed as a holistic concept seamlessly integrating two recreational functions into one enriched experience and we’re very excited to welcome new guests and create great moments together.”
Sheikh Ahmed bin Mana bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Deputy Chairman of Wafi Group added: “Majid Al Futtaim is synonymous with customer-focused and innovative experiences and, we are excited to partner with them to launch this world-class entertainment destination, which offers an exciting selection of immersive attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

The launch marked the fifth cinema opening across the region in the wake of Covid-19 and, later this month, Vox Cinemas will open three multiplexes across Saudi Arabia and Bahrain as part of its ambitious expansion plans.
