Middle Eastern VW clubs set for Wörthersee Treffen

The Wörthersee Treffen motor show — one of the largest car events on the global calendar — is gearing up to take place again this month from May 29 to June 2 at the Austrian resort of Lake Wörthersee.
Established around 35 years ago, and attracting the largest gathering of Volkswagen car enthusiasts at one time, the week-long event welcomes over 100,000 visitors from across the globe annually. This year, the winners from Dub Drive GCC 2019, the Middle East’s annual club gathering, will also represent their clubs at the automotive event.
Members of Volkswagen clubs from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman earned their place at Wörthersee Treffen having set themselves apart from the rest at this year’s Dub Drive GCC.
“From the most sought-after clubs to rare and unique cars, the winners represent the heartbeat of the Volkswagen brand in the Middle East,” the carmaker said.
The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand is present in over 150 markets and produces vehicles at more than 50 locations in 14 countries.

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.
