MAF to Invest Dhs.750m in VOX Cinemas Expansion

Posted on 18th March 2014

Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) has announced plans to spend Dhs.750m on 12 new cinemas in the GCC and Egypt. The new cinemas, including five already announced, will be in the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Egypt and rolled out from June this year. The expansion will begin with the opening of Oman’s two largest cinemas, in Muscat City Centre and Qurum City Centre.

In November 2014, VOX will open  Abu Dhabi’s largest cinema complex, in Aldar’s Yas Island Mall, with 20 screens, including new VOX Max, VOX Gold and VOX 4DX options. The Sharjah City Centre expansion will include a new VOX Cinema, which will become the largest cinema in the emirate. The company also is renovating and expanding its flagship VOX Cinemas at Mall of the Emirates.

The company has recently announced plans to develop the largest cinema in Qatar, in Doha Festival City, and open screens in the Shindagha area of Dubai and in Burjuman Centre.

Ahmed Galal Ismail, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim, one of the largest shopping mall, retail and leisure companies in MENA, said the new complexes would see VOX Cinemas open within non-Majid Al Futtaim developments also for the first time.
