muvi Cinemas opens its doors to audiences in Jeddah

  • The first audio and visual experience of its kind in the Kingdom

JEDDAH: “muvi Cinemas”, the first nationally owned and operated cinema in Saudi Arabia, opened its doors on Saturday and welcomed its first audiences at Mall of Arabia in Jeddah. 

This Saudi cinema is operated by Next Generation Company and is filled with outstanding Saudi talents. 

Saudi Media Minister Turki bin Abdullah Al-Shabanah inaugurated the first branch of the cinema chain at the Mall of Arabia in Jeddah on August 6, 2019.

The first muvi Cinema in Jeddah accommodates 1,950 guests in 15 screens and offers 21 seats for audiences with special needs.

Muvi offers many first-of-its-kind experiences in the Kingdom, including the use of Barco’s high-resolution laser projectors to offer the ultimate visual quality on the largest screen in the Kingdom, as well as the use of the first Dolby Atmos surround system in the Kingdom for the best-in-class audio experience for blockbusters. These technologies can be enjoyed at the Xperience screen, which also offers seats with smartphone chargers and extended legroom.

Another new experience for audiences can be enjoyed at ScreenX, which offers a truly immersive blockbuster experience for those who do not want to just watch a film, as several multi projectors work in tandem to project a realistic panoramic image on the main screen and on the side walls simultaneously, so that audience feel as if they are right the movie.

For those looking for the ultimate luxury cinema experience, Muvi Suites offers a special experience with the best amenities, audio and visual experiences and a private lounge. These suites feature luxurious, fully-motorized reclining leather chairs with footrest to sit back and relax. The most-luxurious suites are designed to ensure uninterrupted viewing pleasure on the large screen. 

Audiences can meet their family and friends at the exclusive private lounge for snacks before the movie starts or have their meals in the comfortable chairs with sliding tables. Muvi Suites accommodates 102 guests in 3 screens.

Muvi will soon launch the Junior screen, in which children enter a special entertainment room to express their creative ideas and drawings, dive into the safe ball pit and then enter the main screen through a special “slide” to watch their movie. 

Encouraged by Muvi for their innovations, their drawings will be displayed on the big screen before each show. Junior offers comfortable and colorful seating for children, with the possibility of hosting family events.

Muvi Cinemas’ management confirmed an expansion plan to launch 250 new screens across the Kingdom within 24 months to offer unique and exclusive experiences for all guests, and recruit and train more local talents.

Resort in Oman offers camping adventures

Updated 19 August 2019

Resort in Oman offers camping adventures

Al-Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara in southern Oman has unveiled its new Luxe Mobile Camping Adventures. In collaboration with travel specialist Oman Expeditions, this offering is the first bespoke luxury mobile camping experience to take guests across the diverse terrain of the Dhofar province from the mountains to the desert to the sea. 

Set between a relaxing stay at the beachside resort in Salalah, the camping adventures offer tailored itineraries of varying lengths. Activities and camp locations allow guests to discover a wilderness of star-studded skies, vast deserts, rugged mountains and long, empty beaches. Southern Oman is said to be an uncharted destination and one of the only places where the true culture of old Arabia is still alive.

Drawing on the vast country knowledge and experience of Oman Expedition’s founder Sean Nelson, these new experiences weave in the rich, traditional heritage and magnificent natural environment of the region to create rare and memorable expeditions for resort guests while continuing to provide the luxury and comfort they desire. 

A former officer in the British Royal Marines and Royal Army of Oman’s Desert Regiment, Nelson has been nominated annually for the Conde Nast Top Travel Specialist for Oman since 2012. A leading private travel specialist, he is renowned for his rich and varied experience of the country. Before setting up Oman Expeditions, Nelson founded Hud Hud Travels in 2006, Oman’s northern-based provider of professionally run private luxury camps and events. 

Traveling via luxury 4x4 vehicles, a sample itinerary would include two nights camping with three days of various activities. Guests may choose to venture deep into the most remote parts of the world’s largest sand desert to find peace and solitude amidst magnificent sweeping dunes reaching up to 200 meters in the Empty Quarter. For a seaside option, guests can camp on a stretch of wild and secluded beach along the Dhofar coastline where they will encounter an array of wildlife including spinner dolphins, green turtles and coastal bird life as well as swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water 30 meters from their tent. In the foothills of the Dhofar mountains, guests can step back in time on a trek with camels along the same ancient frankincense trading routes that these prized animals have been following for over 2,000 years.

Oman Expeditions also brings together Dhofar’s top local contacts from guides, drivers and chefs to camel herders, artisans and religious scholars to ensure clients have an enriching and authentic experience. In addition, expeditions are accompanied by members of the Mahrah, a tribe who have traveled along frankincense trading routes with their camels since the time of the Queen of Sheba.
