The Al Qana development now sounds even more exciting

A massive new cinema complex is coming to Abu Dhabi in 2020

Cards on the table, we’re already excited about the Al Qana development launching.

The new social and dining destination, set to open in 2020, will be home to loads of shops, restaurants and attractions, not to mention a huge aquarium that will house the biggest reptile in the Middle East, a seven-metre long python.

The area will also have a huge cinema complex, Cinemacity Al Qana, that will include 15 screens, including a 26-metre wide screen that will be the biggest in the emirate once the complex opens.

The 2,000 seater cinema will feature RGB laser projectors and Dolby ATMOS surround sound, three VIP cinemas and private lounges for exclusive screenings and premieres.

A first for the region, a Presidential Theatre will also launch that features high-end laser projection, a bespoke menu of gourmet food and more.

A cinematic ampitheatre will also host outdoor events in the winter months and a Graffiti Lounge will overlook the ampitheatre and outdoor gardens where private events can be held throughout the year.

“The evolution of entertainment has given people the ability to watch movies in the palm of their hand, but nothing compares to the feeling of watching a movie in a cinema theatre on the big screen – the way it was meant to be seen,” said Hammad Atassi, CEO of Xclusive Cinemas.

“Along with our variety of world-class viewing experiences, we’re excited to unveil our first custom-designed Premium Large Format (PLF) theatre, CityMAX, in the prime location of Al Qana.

“It will feature a luxurious state-of-the-art theatre equipped with the largest screen in Abu Dhabi and provide the highest quality picture and sound technology in the world. We will also have a high-end VIP Cinema level, exclusive in its offerings to elite cinemagoers of the Emirate, with a Presidential cinema that provides world-class sophistication, design and audio-visual offering.

“Once you watch a movie here, you won’t want to do it anywhere else. Cinemacity Al Qana will become the favourite place for the Emirate’s cinemagoers.”

Well, we don’t know about you but we’re already in the mood for some popcorn and a good movie.
