Mexico's Cinépolis opens new Sohar movie theatre, charts Oman growth
The launch comes after the operator debuted in the GCC this January with a theatre in Atrium Mall, Bahrain
Mexican movie theatre chain Cinépolis announced plans to expand in Oman after launching a theatre in Sohar.
Located in Landmark Group’s recently opened Oasis Mall in Sohar, the Cinépolis cinema will be home to eight screens, and is accompanied by a Junior Theatre to attract young viewers.
The launch comes after the operator debuted in the GCC in January 2019, with the launch of a theatre in Bahrain’s Atrium Mall in Saar. The theatre features 13-screens.
As part of its long-term plans to expand across the GCC, Cinépolis intends to open two more cinemas in Oman this year.
Commenting on the expansion plans, chief executive officer of Cinépolis Gulf, Ashish Shukla, said: “The launch of the first Cinépolis movie theatre in Oman is an important part of our ongoing strategy to establish Cinépolis as the number one choice for film fans across the GCC."
Cinépolis is also planning to open 300 screens in 15 cities across Saudi Arabia. The cinema-giant has partnered with Al-Hokair Group for Tourism and Development, Al Tayer Group, and Lux Entertainment for the project.
