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.

Russia’s cultural capital beckons GCC travelers

Updated 17 October 2019

Russia’s cultural capital beckons GCC travelers

  • Citizens of Oman, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia can now benefit from fast and convenient 
eVisa portal when arranging their next visit to the city of St. Petersburg.
Guarded by two marble lions at the entrance, the Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg sits within the walls of a 19th-century royal palace in the beautifully preserved imperial city of St. Petersburg. Celebrated globally for its history and architecture, Russia’s cultural capital recently became an even more attractive destination for GCC travelers thanks to the introduction of a convenient new online eVisa process.
Launched at the beginning of October, the St. Petersburg eVisa portal enables citizens from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Oman to enjoy the benefits of fast and simple online visa applications. Travelers can simply fill in the online form, upload a photograph, and can complete the entire process in just a few clicks. Applications can be made within 20 days of traveling, and up to four days before arrival. The visa is valid for stays of up to eight days in St. Petersburg and the surrounding Leningrad Region.
Felix Murillo, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg, said: “The introduction of the eVisa portal offers a new level of convenience for international travelers, making it easier than ever for GCC citizens to arrange a trip to our wonderful city. Our concierge team takes great pleasure in highlighting St. Petersburg’s historical and cultural visitor attractions, and will be happy to arrange anything our guests may require to turn every trip into an unforgettable experience. We look forward to welcoming visitors from the Middle East to our beautiful hotel to share cherished moments and create memories that will last a lifetime.”
The Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg is located in the upmarket Admiralteysky district and was originally constructed in the early 19th century for Prince Alexander Yakovlevich Lobanov-Rostovsky.
Since first opening its doors to guests in 2013, the property offers 183 rooms, including 26 sumptuously decorated suites.
Perhaps the most stunning of the hotel’s accommodations is the one-of-a-kind Lobanov Presidential Suite, where guests can gather by the living room fireplace for a night of intimate conversation, host an al fresco dinner party on the expansive private terrace with stunning views of the Admiralty building and the surrounding park, or retreat to the grand master bedroom for a quiet and cosy evening.
The hotel is inviting guests to embark on a range of culinary adventures across its three restaurants. Diners can experience pan-asian fusion flavors at Sintoho, authentic Italian dishes at Percorso and modern Russian cuisine at The Tea Lounge.
Catering to the needs of visitors from the Middle East, halal meat is available on request.
